Beamdog, the game developer and digital distributor behind both Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, is working on something called “Adventure Y” that bridges the gap between the two updated versions of the classic role-playing games.
We’ve mentioned before that Adventure Y will be an addition to the Baldur’s Gate line using the Infinity engine, bridging the gap between Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition. Keep an eye on the Beamblog in late spring for announcements regarding the content and release date of Adventure Y. We have an exciting release planned for this game, something bigger than we’ve ever done before.
The original versions of the games, released in 1998 and 2000 respectively, feature a continuing story that picks up shortly after the ending of the first Baldur’s Gate. Not much is known about “Adventure Y” currently–including exactly how big it might be or whether it will be downloadable content–other than the fact that it will also use an enhanced version of the Infinity Engine like the updated versions. There’s also a speculative thread about “Adventure Y” on the forums for the games.
