There's a new Baldur's Gate expansion


There's a new expansion for fantasy role-playing game Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition in the works.

Siege of Dragonspear adds a new chapter to the Bhaalspawn saga, developer Beamdog has announced. It's set between Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2, and, according to Beamdog, offers around 25 hours of gameplay. You need to own Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition to play it.

You can import your character or saved game from Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition into Siege of Dragonspear, and, usefully, you can continue your adventure by exporting your Siege of Dragonspear game to Baldur's Gate 2: Enhanced Edition.

Beamdog says the user interface has been updated, and there's a new class, the spirit-calling shaman, to get to grips with. There's also cross-platform multiplayer and a new story mode, the latter of which is a difficulty setting that lets you enjoy the story without seeing the Game Over screen.

Siege of Dragonspear is due out for for PC, Mac and Linux on Beamdog and Steam soon, with iOS and Android versions to follow to follow shortly thereafter. Trailer is below.
