Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Returns To The App Store

After a two-month absence, RPG Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition has made a triumphant return to the App Store. The news was first reported by Joystiq after Beamdog's CEO sent out an email that was posted to Reddit:
An email apparently sent out by Beamdog CEO Trent Oster, posted on Reddit and sent to us by a reader, says "all outstanding issues with our publishing partner have been resolved." Oster had previously identified the issue-having "publishing partner" as Atari, who requested the game's removal because of contract matters, a month before Atari Inc. auctioned its assets. The email also mentions a "major" BG:EE patch, as well as details on the unreleased Android version of BG:EE. We've reached out to Beamdog to confirm.
In June, the game was pulled from the App Store after “contractual issues” with an unnamed publishing partner. Here’s the complete app description:
Play the Legend: This classic saga of mystery, intrigue, and adventure has set the standard for Dungeons & Dragons™ computer role-playing games ever since.

 Now, upgraded and enhanced, it comes to your iPad.

 We recommend iPad 2 and better. iOS 5.1 support. The game may function on iPad1, but memory is very tight.
