Make way, evil! Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition is armed to the teeth and packing a hamster! It’s also launching Nov. 15 and is available now for preorder on PC and Mac for $24.95.

This latest version of the classic Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game features full high-definition resolution support and remastered area artwork. It includes the full Shadows of Amn campaign, the Throne of Bhaal expansion, and The Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay arena challenge. It also has four new characters that can join your party, each with their own unique quests.

“We are thrilled that our partners at Beamdog have confirmed a date for the rerelease of what many people consider one of the greatest RPGs ever on PC,” said Nathan Stewart, the brand director for D&D at Wizards of the Coast, in a press release. “As we continue to expand our world-class storytelling on digital platforms, it is great to bring this classic to new devices and share the rich fantasy of D&D with new fans.”

Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition for PC and Mac can be preloaded through either the Beamdog client or an upcoming standalone installer in preparation for its release. iOS and Android versions of the game are also in development.
