Nedtællingen er slut, og Beamdog har frigivet et væld af detaljer om deres store relancering af Baldur's Gate. Først og fremmest blev udgivelsesdatoen til PC-versionen afsløret. Det bliver den 18. september. Om iPad og Mac-versionen følger på samme dag, ved vi ikke med sikkerhed, men de kommer i hvert fald engang i september måned. Android-versionen er stadigvæk TBA (To Be Announced). Der kommer tre nye karakterer: Rasaad yn Bashir, Neera the Wild Mage og Dorn Il-Khan samt et helt nyt eventyr kaldet The Black Pits. Derudover kan vi også forvente over 400 forbedringer af spillet. Et bedre interface og multiplayer-understøttelse, forbedringerne fra Baldur's Gate 1 til 2, nye mellemsekvenser og mod-understøttelse er bare få af de ting, vi kan forvente os af Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. Du kan læse meget mere om de nye ting herunder

Rasaad yn Bashir
For a young man, Rasaad yn Bashir radiates an uncommonly mature aura of calm and wisdom. After a disastrous mission to a monastery in Athkatla, he now wanders the Sword Coast in search of enlightenment.
Orphaned on the streets of Calimport, Rasaad and his brother, Gamaz, barely survived by begging and theft. Caught in the act by a monk of the Order of the Sun Soul, the boys received not punishment but their first instruction. Soon the brothers excelled in the physical, mental, and spiritual training of the monastery devoted to Selûne, goddess of the moon.
In the aftermath of his brother's death, Rasaad has left his order to seek his own solace. If he can also find opportunities to reflect his inner light on those in need, he is eager to do so.

Neera the Wild Mage
After a disastrous wild surge maimed her fellow students, Neera fled her home to wander the High Forest. Even there, her capricious spells threatened the highly flammable woods, forcing the mighty treant Turlang to banish Neera from his domain. On the open road, Neera enjoyed only fleeting companionship before the Red Wizards caught up with her.
Neera's whimsical humor clashes with the guilt she still harbors over the harm she has inadvertently caused in past. She hopes to find a way to control her wild magic, even as she delights in the surprises that could come with every spell.
Fleeing the Red Wizards and seeking a better understanding of her own powers, Neera hopes for friends who can help her survive both her hunters and her own magic.

Imprisoned for the crimes of the entire group, Dorn made a fiendish bargain granting him even greater power and the promise of revenge.
