Beamdog's day of reckoning has arrived! After a few last minute technical hiccups, their first original title, Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, has been released. Will Beamdog join the ranks of the RPG Renaissance alongside inXile, Obsidian, Larian and the rest, or slink away in shame like their unfortunate cousins-in-licensing at n-Space? We shall learn that in the coming weeks. Without further ado, the trailer and description:



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...

The first new game in the Baldur’s Gate series in over a decade, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear adds a new chapter to the Bhaalspawn saga. The events occurring between Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II are at last revealed in this 25-hour adventure.

Features
  • A new chapter in the Baldur's Gate saga
  • A sharp and subtle adventure that pits you against an enigmatic new foe
  • Venture through the vibrant new hand-painted areas of the Sword Coast
  • Import your character from BG:EE and continue the story in BGII:EE
  • Four new player soundsets to customize your hero
  • The original cast returns to kick butt for goodness - along with four new additions!
  • Updated UI and improved Infinity engine features
  • 25+ hours of gameplay
  • New items, quests, and a new class: the Shaman!
  • Original soundtrack by Sam Hulick
  • Functional, extensively tested cross-platform multiplayer on all supported platforms
  • "Story Mode" difficulty setting to allow players to experience all of the story with none of the Game Over screens
Siege of Dragonspear is available now on Steam or directly from Beamdog, and should be released on GOG soon as well. The price is $20, but it is an expansion for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, so you'll have to get that too. Thankfully, BG:EE has a steep 75% discount on Steam and Beamdog until next week, so the total package will cost you just $25. If you'd like more information before you buy, there are a couple of launch day reviews at PCWorld and VentureBeat. They're quite positive, although the PCWorld review mentions that the expansion has a peculiar linear structure that sets it apart from the other Infinity Engine games.
