Ships Ahoy - Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

The Baldur's Gate Website announces that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is now available for Windows PCs through the Beamdog Service. The game was to be released for all platforms today, but Trent Oster tweets that the iOS build is not approved, Android is trailing iOS, and the Mac OSX version is also delayed (thanks Eurogamer/Modojo). Here's word:

Overhaul Games is pleased to announce that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition of PC has been released through Beamdog, and can be purchased here.

If you've already purchased Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, you can either download it through the Beamdog client, which can be found here, or through the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Installer which can be downloaded here.

Please note that due to extreme server load it may take some time to get your game, but we are working around the clock to alleviate the situation.

Actually, Beamdog has apparently got the rights to Baldur's Gate 3, so if there's enough interest in their BG (and upcoming BG2) remakes, they said they would try to make a BG3.

I don't believe they could use the DnD framework though, even if they could do BG3. And they also said they won't do a black hound related one. So essentially it would be a BG in name only, which is part of what my point was. And so far its all been remakes, they would have to do a ton of sales to be capable of expanding enough to do a new game. Those sales probably won't happen on beamdog platform. If they kickstart its possible they could start... but I sure wouldn't give them any KS money based on what they've done to date.

Eh, part of the DnD is just the rules underneath that make the combat run. It's very easy to come up with a new set of rules. I think a more curious question is whether they have the right to use Forgotten Realms stuff with their BG3 license, or if it's strictly BG3 and none of the D&D lore stuff.

Anyway, I'd be interested in buying this, but not for 20 bucks. Nostalgia only goes so far, and I never even thought the first BG was all that awesome anyway.
