Again, I really hope I'm wrong as this is one of my most anticipated games I'm just prepared to be disappointed on the 28th.
Well, we can't be sure, but I think they've thought it through and submitted the game already, or is very close to do it.

I will be disappointed, of course, like we'll all be, if BG won't be released on iOS until well into December, but I've pre-ordered the game for PC too, so I'll keep myself busy with that in the mean time.

Here's to hoping it'll make it onto iOS in November.

At the forums at Baldursgate.com we've been anticipating a promised trailer and new screenshots for weeks now.
Today we finally got some exiting news.
Here's a quote from one of the developers:


Phillip Daigle

12:17AM

For those curious, here's the skinny: I have a batch of new media and video ready to go public, but I'm going to wait until pre-loading begins this week to release it at the same time. I know you guys want it right away, but unfortunately you'll need to wait just a tiny bit longer.

Regarding pre-loading, you'll be getting an email from Beamdog when it goes live in addition to an update here on the forums and on baldursgate.com. Expect it within 48 hours.


I can't wait!

I assume you're talking about DLC's?
A very knowledgeable member on the official forums have stated that the previously shrouded in rumor, the famous "Y Adventure" will be released as DLC.

It's supposed to be a fairly lengthy adventure expanding on the Bhall story.
I'm very exited about this!

There was an "X Adventure". That became "The Black Pits", which is shipped with the game on release day.
It's a stand alone adventure, where you either create a new party just for that, or import your in-game party to play.
It's tailor made for co-op multiplayer, but can be enjoyed solo too.

Good news about the new UI then! I'm quite excited about that. Obviously I wasn't expecting the gameplay assets to be redone in HD, but as long as the pixels are sharp and not just blown up by a random percentage that fuzzes them out, I'll be happy. When I say "retina support" I really just mean crisp edges and lines. If an 8-bit game scales up perfectly to the dimensions of the new iPad I consider that retina support.

Agreed. No filtering please!

Yeah, it's a great trailer!
I've pre-loaded the game myself, so I'm ready to rock & roll on the 28'th.

If you're interested in reading the new manuals, look no further:

Pure unadulterated awesomeness. Here's hoping the iPad version ships on the 28th as well!
