Beamdog has been teasing a Baldur’s Gate expansion that takes place between the first and second games since January. Yesterday, they finally delivered on that promise with an official announcement.
Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear is a brand new expansion pack to Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, designed with an improved version of Beamdog’s Infinity Engine to capture that old school feel. Rather than create a standalone game, Siege of Dragonspear will require players to own Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition when it’s released on the PC (Windows, Linux, Mac) and mobile devices (iOS, Android). According to Beamdog, the expansion will offer more than 25 hours of gameplay, and here’s what players can expect:
Though Sarevok is dead and his plan for war averted, peace eludes the citizens of Baldur’s Gate. A crusade marches from the north, seizing supplies, forcing locals into military service, and disrupting trade along the Sword Coast. A charismatic warrior known as the Shining Lady leads this army, her background shrouded in mystery. Can the rumors be true… is she, like you, the child of a god?
The closer you get to the Shining Lady, the more you realize your father, the dead Lord of Murder still casts a long shadow upon your path. Baldur’s Gate has put its faith in you, but you must determine whose interests you truly serve before you face the Shining Lady among the ruins of Dragonspear Castle…
Beamdog has yet to announce a release date for Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, but prospective players to explore the game’s brand new website at SiegeOfDragonspear.com to find out more.
