Trent Oster Discusses Baldur's Gate 2: Enhanced Edition
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

RPG Gamer has posted a new interview with Overhaul Games' Trent Oster about the upcoming Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. Scheduled to launch on November 15 the game will include the original Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and the Throne of Bhaal expansion, as well as four new party members, a variety of new areas to explore, the new Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay arena combat adventure, and a host of bug fixes and performance improvements.

Johnathan Stringer (RPGamer): What is the current status of Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition?

Trent Oster (Overhaul Games): Baldurs Gate II: Enhanced Edition is nearing completion. We are almost done with all the engine improvements, and we are testing many of the new features in the original BG:EE with our Beamdog users. Everyone who bought BG:EE from Beamdog will have access to the beta. Since we've re-written large amounts of code, we need to ensure the save game system is compatible and ensure our extensive re-work has solved our issues with the integrated Intel cards and the limited Open GL support offered by them.

JS: What new content will be in Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition? Are you adding any new characters that weren't in the first game?

TO: We've brought back the blackguard Dorn Il-Khan, Neera the Wild Mage, and the Sun Soul Monk Rasaad (voiced by Mark Meer of Mass Effect fame). Each new character has some deep character development arcs, and there's a ton of new content and places to explore.

We're also adding another new NPC, but we are keeping the new character under wraps for now. Suffice to say we've addressed a major request for a certain character type to join your party. And no, it's not Baeloth. He's busy.
