As fans bask in the excitement of one new old-school-style RPG being unveiled, we are hit with some not-so-good news about Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. Beamdog has announced the game is not coming out next week as planned. Instead, it has been delayed until November 30.
Company president Trent Oster took to the Baldur's Gate forums to explain that the task was bigger than first imagined, even with volunteers continuing to help: "After recently reviewing the game and then consulting with our partners, we've decided to ensure that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is the best possible product on launch. Thus, we have pushed back the release date of the game."
New characters, missions and areas are being included to go with the beefed up original game, which was supposed to release on September 18. To make up for the delay, Oster said the company is working on "something a little extra" for people who have already pre-ordered the game.
