Baldur's Gate II Beta Test Reports
10:05 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Our own Jay Swartzfeger, web master of the Mac Baldur web site dedicated to all things Baldur's Gate, is among the lucky few selected to be a member of the Baldur's Gate II beta testing team for MacPlay. Currently several members of Mumbo Jumbo are cranking out the Mac OS port of this award-winning RPG, and a variety of reports on the forums at Mac Baldur suggest that the game might even be less than six weeks from golden master.

Beta testers are usually not permitted to comment directly about the betas they are working with; however Jay and several others on the testing team have managed to drop many a hint in their forum discussions. MacPlay exec Mike Donges has been spotted patrolling the forums, so you can be sure any offending information about the BG II beta will be corrected or removed posthaste. That being said, take all the information posted there with the usual grain of salt, as the anonymity of online posting often leads to rash statements and behavior.

While we don't feel comfortable quoting some of the statements made in the forums, as they skirt the edges of a Beta tester's non-disclosure agreement, those who are interested should browse Mac Baldur for the hints and beta reports posted there. If you haven't read IMG's preview of Tales of the Sword Coast (an expansion pack for the original Baldur's Gate) or our previews of Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate II, now's your chance.
