    Baldur's Gate Countdown Ends... Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for Summer 2012

    As you may know, the official Baldur's Gate website was revived a couple of months back.

    The last couple of days it has had a countdown timer on it. Which ran out... well, shortly before I wrote this news post.

    However, the website immediately crashed. It's apparently an announcement of a Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for Summer 2012 (thanks to Dordledum below).

    Trent Oster on Twitter: "We're happy to announce the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. Our servers are much less happy... Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition is going to have new content for the game you love, made by some of the original team members."

    You can keep trying it here - or you can be nice and not keep trying it. I imagine its being hammered by a lot of people hitting "refresh" right now, which won't help their efforts to get it back up again.

    According to Joystiq: "Beamdog reps tell us that the team at Overhaul is adding "new, original content" to the original game to make up the Enhanced Edition. "This is the Enhanced Edition, it's not a repackage. We have the original source code and are doing a significant update," a rep said. He also confirmed that no platforms have been announced just yet."

    For those wondering what Baldur's Gate is, and why we should care:

    Baldur's Gate is a role-playing video game developed by BioWare and released in 1998 by Interplay Entertainment. The game takes place in the Forgotten Realms, a high fantasy campaign setting, using modified Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) 2nd edition rules. The game received critical praise, and was credited (along with Diablo) with revitalizing the CRPG genre.

    It was very, very good.

    crosspost on facebook from twitter: "Atari Reveals Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for Summer 2012". Regardless of the website being down, that's apparently the announcement.

    And damn that's a good announcement!

    Any idea what console/format? The DS and/or 3DS would be a super-win!!! (And something I said they should do ever since they settled the Atari/WotC lawsuit.)

    I, for once, would like to see the game as multi-plataform title. That way, more people will be able to enjoy this masterpiece

    Well, there should be a PC release ... they did release their MDK2HD for PC after all.

    Heh, I don't care how many platforms it hits as long as PC is one of them.
