The Beamdog folks were at GDC this week to promote their Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, which is less than two weeks away from release. It doesn't seem to have gotten much press, but they did allow GameSpot to post a video of the game's intro cutscene. I'd say it's better done than the BG:EE opening, with narrator Kevin Michael Richardson reprising his role.
After the introduction, there are a few snippets of gameplay, including one scene that features a mysterious "Hooded Man" who sounds suspiciously like David Warner, and another scene that shows a massive battle. Unfortunately, the dramatic effect of these scenes is rather diminished by the tendency of whoever was playing the game to skip through the voiced dialogue before it finishes.
