They seem to have finished Irenicus' Dungeon so that's something.

Most RPGs are only half the size of Chapter 2 alone though, so yeah - don't see this ever being done.

The first trailer was uploaded in 2010, the trailer for the next bit at the end of August 2012. At that rate they should be finished around 2025.

I doubt Module 2 will include all of Athkatla, that city was bigger than all of DA2.

So this is out and it seems that it probably isn't worth it if you already have the original version unless you are dying to play co-op with some who has it on their iPad.

Gamespy detail the various ins and outs here.

To be honest I thought they would have spruced the art up a bit more, it doesn't look that much different to the original once it has been modded.

It might be worth it if you don't already have the GOG versions and don't fancy hunting down all of these "fan patches" that the enhanced version comes with.

It's a game of convenience.

Why the fuck have they replaced the soundtrack? The BG soundtrack was one of the best things about the game. :?

I may get this for the ipad, simply because its BG on an ipad, but I won't be happy about it. [-(

Licensing/rights problem maybe? There can sometimes be funny little obscure problems with reboots/new versions of things where old soundtracks are concerned.

I haven't heard the new one yet. Might be pretty good. Or it might be fantasy-dubstep.

Yeah, apparently Wizards of the Coast have been a bit dickish about getting anything approved. With the new soundtrack, I'm sure it could be very good - just not BG. The original has been ingrained into me for the last 13 years. It'll be similar to how I still can't accept some of the Star Wars special edition changes purely because the originals were burned into my memory for so long.

Does anyone know if this is a photoshop or are the new characters really this terrible:

I'd be shocked if that wasn't a piss take.

Apparently a lot of her conversation options are "SEX NOW" or "FUCK OFF". Also the circles under each party member are colour coded with their clothes, I guess that is to make you accidentally attack Edwin in every battle.

Well, colour me surprised. I've got this on the ipad and I'm suitably impressed. I was very skeptical as to how well the interface would translate to a tablet, but it's almost seamless. The only slightly fiddly thing is group-selecting, as you have to press a separate button before dragging the box, but everything else is intuitive and well thought out. The zoom option is great and feels like it should have always been there.

Slight niggles include the individually coloured circles for each party member, but that's something I'm sure I'll get used to. Also there could be better feedback for interaction, such as highlighting a container when you select it. Otherwise this is well and truly BG on an ipad.

Also, the original music is still there! \:D/ The new music must be for the new stuff, which I've not encountered yet.

Someone has only gone and remade Baldur's Gate using the NWN2 engine:

If I still have my NWN2 discs, may check this out.

The Enhanced Edition has been removed from sale and work on the second game has been stopped due to a contractual problem.
