Today we're pleased to bring you v2.1, which includes a number of fixes to BG:EE, BGII:EE, and the Siege of Dragonspear expansion. The full release notes are linked below, but here are the highlights:

- Difficulty options should now be preserved across saved games

- Multiplayer in general should be more stable

We still have a few lingering issues to fix regarding multiplayer, as well as other areas of the game that need some more polish; those things will be addressed in one of our upcoming updates. In the meantime, enjoy this first batch of fixes!

"The writing of Baldur's Gate has always been one of its strongest aspects. The story remains unchanged and still holds up."

8.5/10 - Destructoid
"Hammers out a multitude of bugs found in the original release, as well as introduces brand new characters, storylines, and modes to play through.

8.5/10 - Inside Gaming Daily
"Enhanced Edition has received a number of visual upgrades including support for high resolutions that provide a far more panoramic view of the game's lovely, lush backgrounds, and a mousewheel-controlled zoom function for quickly shifting to a more down-and-dirty view of the battlefield."

The game is a classic and will engage RPG enthusiasts of every stripe. The Enhanced Edition brings some interface and quality of life improvements to the table, with some options to tune the game toward the classic AD&D experience if you're a hardcore player. The additional NPCs added to the game are not quite as memorable as the originals, but they are a nice addition, and I did particularly like Dorn Il-Khan.

The new Siege of Dragonspear DLC fits the tone and story of the original excellently, and I would recommend anyone who enjoyed the original game to get it. I did get a somewhat railroady feeling from it in my playthrough as a villainous character, but the tropes and flow of the plot fit perfectly with the high fantasy of the rest of the series. It lacks a certain depth to make it truly remarkable, but it's certainly very enjoyable for any D&D fantasy fan.

So... they released a new update, and my save file was deleted, and the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ dlc which i refunded was back!! I don't want your DLC, I want my save file back, and I want to be able to roll back to the last update before the game was screwed up. Unfortunately the devs are a bunch of SJWs who don't understand games so they won't do any of that, but hey, at least the orgiinal is on sale over at GOG.

I've played Baldur's Gate more than any other game in my life, even back before Tales of the Sword Coast where you had to swap between the five CD's if you wanted to travel around the map. Among my fondest memories, the BG series always gives me great pleasure, so I cannot in good conscience accept what Beamdog and their putrid claws has turned this beloved franchise into, part of the culture war where even beeing a "cis white male" is wrong. Eventhough the ones buying this game are usually white males. Do not buy this game and do not support Beamdog as they have clearly shown that crappy writing is perfectly exusable as long as you make it serve diversity, forcibly if possible. In a world of orcs, goblins, dragons, monsters, magic and divine, earthshattering prophecies unfolding, it's still more important to inject social commentary because thats how SJW's can make themselves look good.

This game is fantastic. The story is good and the characters are fantastic and the combat gets really deep and interesting, basically allowing you to play any way you want.

If you have ever seen the "Extra Credits" youtube video about Dark Souls II allowing players to decide their difficulty with in game choices, like melee greater difficulty than magic, that is what Baldur's Gate is like. You can go full out power gamer and try to min/max everything and get the best out of everything, or just play how you want with terrible party compositions and a more role play focus. I mean, there are the standard difficulty options of 'easy', 'normal', etc. but how you play the game can make it much harder or easier too, which I appreciate.

This game took me years to get into, I'll admit that. I just kept restarting changing classes and decisions I'd make. It felt like such a hard and inaccessible game - which in many ways it is, it demands a lot of you in terms of learning how to play. But, after years of half ♥♥♥♥♥ attempts and finally actually getting into the walls of Baldur's Gate, it feels pretty good man.

This, and Baldur's Gate II were my introduction to a more open world RPG when they first came out. They give you the freedom to explore the world at your pace, interact with a diverse cast of characters, and choose the route you wish to take to the end. Some of those things may seem pretty standard for some games now, but it was beyond brilliant back then. Best of all, the game still holds up today. The story is engaging, the dialogue is interesting and at times hilarious, and the world feels alive around you.

I believe I picked this game up on a sale for about $5, but it's well worth the normal $20 as well if you're not willing to wait for a sale.

This is something I should get used to I guess. My review of a game changing with the patches that come out for it.When this came out I was disappointed. Now, touching it again after time and many patches, I'm really impressed.
I wish they had found and reused the original artist hi-res backgrounds and sprites to enhance the game instead of blurring it to increase resolution, but appart from that, great job beamdog!

I loved the original B♥♥♥♥nd bought BG1:EE to experience the first game, and while it worked about a year ago when I first installed it, now the game no longer functions for me. I imagine that--like other players--the latest update ruined my ability to play the game I paid for. Even after working with tech support, the best I could do was to get the game to turn on, at which point it would be so slow and glitchy I couldn't even move past the first screen. Tech support has been unable to fix this for me yet, and their only advice was to wait for a revised patch. My machine can handle Skyrim, AC4, Far Cry 3 and other big games just fine, but apparently this remake of an ancient RPG kills my computer's ability to handle things.

Until they fix the bugs that make BG:EE unplayable, I cannot recommend it.

Fantastic.

The new updates to Baldur's Gate:EE released near Dragonspear make the game much better.

It always saddens me that the rich world of Faerun is only well-represented today/remembered by a handful of games that have extremely limited scope, and I'd really like to see more companies tell their stories using this type engine. That said, Dragonspear is excellent. I really enjoyed every minute of it, and (as an adult) had to fight the urge to binge through in a few sessions.

I'm writing this review to hopefully encourage people who liked BG & BG2 to give it a chance, in the hopes that this might encourage Beamdog to develop additional DLC for BG or BG2. Would be great if they were able to spend more time on the overall story, create some new tilesets, and maybe introduce new characters areas for exploration.


Pro's:
+ Gampelay.
+ Being able to clearly see the benefit of different weapons/armor without busting out a calculator.
+ New story is ~ 20 hours long to complete. I somewhat rushed and finished in about 22 hours.
+ Lot's of new dialogue is relevant and well-written.
+ Added character development for existing characters.
+ Possibly bridges BG & BG2.

Con's:
- Want moar. moar moar moar.
- Some parts of the story seem generic or rushed, although the overall arc is well-written.
- Needs new tilesets. If tilesets were completely new, then they were not distinct enough. ..I understand it's all The Sword Coast, but a little more diversity would be nice.


There seems to be an online PC/SJW or anti-SJW crowd pushing hate for this expansion. I emplore you to really consider that Beamdog can't appeal to you, but ask yourself- are they really trying to wrong you?

Maybe it's just an age thing, but I don't have time to worry about whether a transgender character or feminist character are well-represented, and Beamdog would have to come out and state that they're clearly anti-LBGT/anti-feminist for it to even matter.

Also due to age, I've gamed long enough to see many good things just die. Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and (stand-alone) Neverwinter Nights titles made up the majority of these isometric adaptations of AD&D rulesets and lore, and I've always liked them. But those companies were either bought up by much larger companies (looking at you, EA), and their products were watered-down, or changed altogether. It's indescribably uplifting to see at least somebody taking charge again, and reviving this genre. So please, if you feel slighted- it's ok to share. But please be absolutely damned sure harm was intended before waving the battle-standard; good things like this don't happen often, and many times they die too early.

How does someone add more bugs and game breaking issues to a game released in 1998?

I am honestly confused how this is done...
Did they do any QA?
Can I get mutliplayer that worked like it did in 1998?
Push diversity, fail to make a quality product...
and fail to push diversity in a constructive way...
so just fail.

Got this to play with my wife who had never seen Baldur's Gate before. Why Can't I multiplayer with her and now she thinks Baldur's Gate name is mud. Epic win there. Got an old fan of this game to regret buying it and and new customer to hate the franchise.

The new update is awful. It was wonderful before. Lots of nostalgia. And in an attempt to update it with the release of Siege of Dragonspear (which I won't be purchasing if the layout from the update is any indication), the UI has been rendered cartoonish, and terrible. The attemtp at putting in a patch to allow us to revert back to the old layout failed, and the game constantly crashes. Just terrible.

after the update I wrote a review praising this game, saying "for 5 bux it's a must buy."
This was silly of course because I only had a chance to play for it for about an hour after the update. Now that I've spent a lot more time with it I can say that I DO like some of the new features but they are not worth the bugs.

Since I just have the first Baldur's Gate I don't know how bad the update broke the 2nd one, but from this game alone I will not be getting anything from Beamdog again. From what I've seen from their behavior, I want to get a refund.

never buy any game with anyone involved with this abomination.

I deeply regret purchasing this game. The developer, Beamdog, recently created the expansion DLC "Siege of Dragonspear", which, among other problems, includes real-world social issues like Gamergate, which obviously make no sense within the context of Faerun, in the dialogue. Worse, when people try to point out these problems in the forums, Beamdog bans them and/or accuses them of bigotry. Not only are they abusing the intellectual property of one of the most-loved CRPGs of all time, but they are also engaging in unethical conduct when dealing with dissatisfied customers. I regret letting them have any of my money, and I would encourage you to avoid making the same mistake.

I like this game so much I still have my original CD's, I also have the Infinity Engine collectors edition, with all of the IE games, I bought the enhanced edition via GoG, and then when SoD was released I bought it via Steam as well, with the intent of playing through for the umpteenth time, and then buying and playing SoD.

Don't do it. Don't buy the new 2.0 "enhanced" edition. It is even uglier than the original version, multiple parts of the game that worked fine are now broken, and even worse you can't uninstall the absolutely terrible 2.0 patch and go back to the way it was. I'm seriously mad, and may be looking for a refund, unless Beamdog comes out and says they are working to allow us to opt to play with the terrible 2.0 update or not.

If Beamdog will reverse all the changes they made with 2.0, or at least allow us to back to the previous patch, then EE Baldur's Gate was a very good game, and yes, it was enhanced. Now it isn't, unless "enhanced" suddenly means broken, ugly, and worse than before.

Dear Beamdog,
I appreciate how you brought back a classic game and made it so that I could play it on my modern system.

I do not appreciate how you changed my game that I purchased, and also, a game that is my favorite RPG ever. I want to play my original game the way Black Isle intended. Not a game that you think I need to play.

Changing my characters to look cartoony is so off putting that I can't play the game. If I was in charge, I'd fire your art department.

I want more than anything to love this game as I have all the others. However, I cannot excuse the complete laziness of the writing.
For example *spoiler* when you go through the underground passage to the end and find Hephernaan, he retreats from the battle and you find an imprisoned Daeros Dragonspear. After speaking with Daeros you learn of Hephernaan's plan to use your Bhaalspawn blood to open a gate to hell for nepharious purposes all the while manipulating Caelar.
Caelar calls for a parley and demands you surrender yourself and instead of telling your ally's the truth of their ploy, all you can do as options for dialogue is "duhhhh I have no clue what they could POSSIBLY want with me". Something along the lines of this anyway.
Absolutely lazy writing and it makes me desire for those writers to be strung up from a tree by their fingers for defiling this games' amazing legacy with their incompetant witlessness.

The new update has completely removed Mac OS capability on versions older than 10.8.2. The game previously supported versions 10.6.8 and newer. When launching the game on a version older than 10.8.2 a prompt will say that Baldur's gate no longer supports versions older than 10.8.2 and will not launch. Now the only way to run Baldur's gate on these previously supported versions of Mac OS is to pirate an a vanilla version of the game, or run the windows version in Wine.

As of April 8th, 2016 the store page still lists 10.6.8 as the minimum Mac OS requirement.

The previous version of Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition was very solid. But then the update v2.0 came out and it was practically forced down through our throats. Steam doesn’t have any option to turn off auto update. The resulting state of the game is awful. I will just mention some new characteristics I think are very bad decisions.

1 – There is no dedicated local map page anymore. When you click on the map button, the area you are in will be zoomed out such that it will be full visible. Plus, they’ve added some large black borders to all the sides. These annoying borders also appear when you are next to the edge of an area and move the cursor in that direction.

2 – That characteristically lovable “scroll opening effect” that happens when you hover the mouse over some element was replaced by an ugly and unfitting modern-like box that pops up. If you click on the help button, you will see lots of these horrible boxes polluting the screen. They are also present on the zoomed view of the area and the worst part is that you cannot turn these boxes off without removing the map markers in the process.

3 – In the previous versions of the game, you could go from one menu page to whatever other you wish. Now if you are, for instance, on the inventory page you cannot go to the journal page directly anymore. The button of the journal page will even be displayed in a dark color. So you will have to close the page you are on, returning to the game screen, and only then it will be allowed to you to open the journal. Strangely enough it will be allowed to go directly to the journal only if you are in the new zoomed view that replaces the local map. And the journal page will be displayed over the zoomed view.

4 – The journal page now occupies only half of the screen. But why? If a change does not improve the gameplay, why would the developers implement it? Do they have so many time to throw away? Also all the quests (finished and not finished) are displayed together.

5 – The new record page looks like a web browser with all those tabs. In the previous version there was only one tab called “Information” and it was good enough. Now there is a “class” tab, a “stats” tab and so on. Now we know what kind of information is in a tab labeled as “class” because it is very descriptive by itself. However, what kind of information a tab labeled as “information” holds? The only purpose of a label is to indicate the type of content it refers to.

6 - Now if you are on the world map page and click to drag, the cursor does not change from a open hand to a "grabbing hand" as it did before. It doesn't even change from the standard pointing finger to the open hand! I know this is just a little detail removed, but it was part of a masterpiece once called Baldur's Gate. Say, if someone changes the color of the Mona Lisa's eyes, for instance, would you call the result "Mona Lisa" anymore?

NOTE: FOR THOSE WHO ARE FRUSTRATED WITH THE V2.0 UPDATE. YOU CAN RIGHT CLICK ON THE BALDUR'S GATE EE IN STEAM LIBRARY, THEN GO TO PROPERTIES AND TO THE TAB CALLED "BETAS". CLICK ON THE DROP DOWN BOX AND SELECT bgee_1.3. IT'S DONE, YOU NOW HAVE THE PREVIOUS VERSION AGAIN!

While I would love to give this game a thumbs up - The story is interesting and well-written(as far as I have been able to get, at least), it's fun to play, the dialogue by characters is entertaining(again, as far as I have gotten thus far), it has amazing roleplaying potential, and the character customization(skills, skill points -not aesthetically) is really deep-

But I play this game online with a friend and the online is beyond broken. The game will crash randomly, not once, or twice in a blue moon. No, it crashes INCESSANTLY back-to-back-to-back. At this point I can't even play with my friend, as everytime he joins and I try to save the game, it crashes. Not to mention that we are playing on a LAN connection. A LAN. And still the multiplayer is horrifyingly broken.

In fact, I can't even play my save game without him, as regardless of whether he is in the game or not, whenever I try to save - it crashes. It also tends to corrupt your saves, if you're trying to play multiplayer, without rhyme or reason. We also had to roll back multiple saves, losing hours of progress, because the game decided it no longer liked X number of saves.

We've started up 4 new games, after hours of play, simply because we could not continue on a save game we had invested time in, as it became corrupted or the game decided it was done allowing us to play that save game.

So if you're looking to play with someone, I cannot recommend this game.

Beamdog brought SJW ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t and anti-gamer sentiments into the new expansion, don't buy it, don't believe their backpedaling or excuses. The developers have frequently and actively insulted "Gamers" as a whole through their terribly unprofessional and immature responses to the complaints about this, going so far as to label anyone who disagrees with them as "Gamergaters"(portraying that as clear and complete evidence of their utter subhumanity and evil nature) or "mysoginists" and so forth.

If I could get a refund, I would. Certainly removing it from my steam library either way.


Oh, and the new DLC is going to be forcibly packaged into the game soon on multiple distribution packages, so don't even buy the base game or support Beamdog in any way, these developers are not friends of the gaming community.

Never in my life have I thought I'd give a thumb down to Baldur's Gate, one of my favorite games of all time, but in light of recent events here we are.

In short: Do not give your money to Beamdog, while some of their staff are probably okay, a few of their employees *cough*Dee*cough* decided to alter a legendary game to clumsily push their political ideas while taking a dump on the original version at the same time.

Multiplayer doesn't work at all. Fix this.

Otherwise great solo game, but i don't want to spend time reviewing a game that doesn't work.

PLEASE FIX THE MULTIPLAYER.

I bought the expansion to play through it with a friend, and have only wasted many hours trying to get it to work. Going to attempt LAN emulation next...

I want to recommend this - there are some changes I like, but I can't recommend it while the multiplayer is completely broken
