Last year hardcore role-playing game fans were treated to the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate. But what fans really want is a brand new Baldur's Gate game and yesterday Beamdog finally talked about what we can expect from the in 2015. They were still extremely secretive, but at least we know that they are working on three new games. The sad news is that there won't be a Baldur's Gate III, but a game "bridging the gap between Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition." So far they are just calling it "Adventure Y".
We want Baldur's Gate III! It's starting to feel like the Half-Life series where a new game is more a myth than reality ;). Beamdog did promise that the Baldur's Gate addition will be "something bigger than we’ve ever done before." They've also released a few images, with the promise to release more information later this year.
Beamdog is also working two more projects; "Project: Beartrap" and "Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition."
"Right now all we can say about Project: Beartrap is that it exists and it’s a departure for us in terms of what we’ve done in the past. Also, the project might involve sharks."
Although Beamdog is not talking about a Baldur's Gate III release for 2015, they are hinting at preparing for it with the working going into Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition.
"we’re preparing [for BGIII] by starting a tabletop 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons game here in the office. Amber, aka the BeamBard, is our first sacrificial DM in running an office campaign. Expect future Beamblog posts on how she ruthlessly murderized all our lovingly created characters."
You can find the open letter to fans here.
Are you a Baldur's Gate fan? What would you like to see in Baldur's Gate III? Let's look at the latest BGII Enhanced Edition trailer while we pine away for BGIII
