It appears the rather excellent dungeon crawler ‘Baldur’s Gate’ is to rise from the grave.
A teaser site with the original logo and music has appeared and development team Beamdog are working on the game.
The franchise was originally developed by BioWare and conveniently Beamdog is headed by former BioWare designer Trent Oster who said there will be an announcement ‘very soon.’
The source code for the teaser site contains the following message:
Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine
For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory.
And then… it returned. Better than it was before.
Pore over the tapestries and works of art hanging from our walls if you wish, Child of Bhaal… perhaps you will find a clue. But patience, ah… patience would reveal it all.
As the silver moon waxes and wanes, so too does life.
The original title was developed on the Infinity engine, so ‘raise dead’ and ‘it returned, better than before’ seems to indicate a remake or revamped version of the first game.
