A few weeks ago, a mysterious new website
went online with the Baldur's Gate
logo. Fans of the games quickly started looking through the website's source code for more information, only to be greeted with cryptic phrases.
Today, Enhanced Editions of both the original Baldur's Gate
and Baldur's Gate II
. The official website
has been getting hit hard by a great deal of traffic. Trent Oster, formerly of BioWare but now with Beamdog, the digital distributor / developer behind this "enhanced edition," has been answering questions via Twitter
in the meantime. You can also see some text from the official website at this PC Gamer article
, and Joystiq
also has some information from the companies involved.
I've never played either Baldur's Gate
myself, though over the past few weeks I've found myself thinking about purchasing the first one and giving it a try. Maybe I'll finally do that when these editions are released this summer.
