Could a new Baldur's Gate be on the way?

A new teaser site has crept onto the thing we call the Internet, and it brings sultry promises of new Baldur's Gate content. The site plays music, has a few images, and bears a quote from Alaundo, but the stuff hidden in the source code brings the most interest. 

As spotted on Eurogamer, the code contains several juicy references. Hardcore fans of the series ought to recognize such gems as:

  • 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.

Meanwhile, gossip elsewhere suggests that Beamdog, a studio headed by former BioWare dev Trent Oster, is responsible for the site. 

So, could a new Baldur's Gate be on the way? It's too early to tell, but it's looking quite possible indeed.

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
