Baldur's Gate Also Sells Out
1:10 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Earlier this week we reported that Mac Diablo II had enjoyed smashing success and sold out the entire first run of 25,000 copies; it seems that the Mac thirst for RPGs is unquenchable, however, as GraphSim's Jeff Morgan just told us that Mac Baldur's Gate has also sold out of its initial run of 20,000 copies! More copies are currently being pressed, of course.
Morgan also reassured us that a patch with several bug fixes is on the way; this will be followed by a patch which will enable multiplayer Internet play. Initially they plan to fix a small memory leak as well as several "special situation problems." GraphSim is still looking into creating a DVD version of this game, available as a separate purchase, which would eliminate swapping between the game's 5 CD-ROMs.
For more information on Baldur's Gate, be sure and check out our preview of this title. The success of this title for GraphSim is great news, as it may help to inspire future ports based on this series. We know Tales of the Sword Coast is on the way, but Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate II are also based on the same engine, and are tantalizing possibilities for Mac RPG fans.
