There is a new official forum for BGEE. If you want to suggest new features to include, please join and make new requests on the forum.

Edited by William Imm, 29 May 2012 - 12:55 PM.

At this point, I'm not really doing much Baldur's Gate related. More focused on Skyrim modding and the Born of Legend tabletop roleplaying game. Don't expect much activity here.

Trent Oster via Twitter:

We plan to support the game after release with DLC.

We'll be doing free feature improvements and existing content improvements as we go, but we are also planning some paid DLC.

We would never DLC existing content. Any DLC content we plan to sell will be all new.

DLC=Downloadable Content, not furry earrings +3. The big guys have overcooked the term with badness. New BG storylines, New characters.

News-wise, we're in a holding pattern on approvals and getting new content submitted into the approvals pipeline.

We've got cloud saves in our plans. Those plans have yet to be realized. I'm hopeful, but it could be pushed post-ship.

Trent Oster via Twitter: BG2 EE in 2013.

#bg2ee will be in 2013. We have no plans to put the game on gog. The Jellybean encryption sounds interesting, but we are hard up for time

The Beamdog version will be available with or without our client. We've heard all the "I love Steam more than kitties" so no client.

The countdown having finished, the new content was revealed to be the following:The Enhanced Edition features were also detailed. The EE is now available for pre-purchase for Windows PCs, and will apparently be released for the iPad and Mac in September.

Edit: The Android launch is still TBA.
