    Great news. Immediately tried to pre-purchase it, but the page doesn't seem to work, neither in Opera, nor in Explorer. Any help?

    Edit: I tried a different way and it works. The purchase can be done through the Beamdog site:

    http://www.beamdog.com/products/baldurs-gate-ii-enhanced-edition-for-windows

    Thanks guys, I think everyone that grew up with these games like I did is immensely grateful for your wonderful work!

    @Dee, I was unable to go through with the purchase, the page just froze. But I solved going directly to the Beamdog site. Thanks.

    We're literally bringing everything online right now, so things might be a bit quirky for a few minutes.

    Does the store page not load, or are you unable to purchase it?

    I got BG EE from Steam. If I pre-order BG 2 EE from Beamdog, there won't be any compatibility issues right? I'm 99% sure it'll be fine, but I just wanna confirm encase there might be unforseen consequences.

    Also am I right to understand Beamdog users get patches quicker?

    @Heindrich1988
    They should be fully compatible with the Steam version, yes. The games are largely the same as long as the Steam version is up-to-date.

    As for patches, there's always going to be a period of latency simply because of the number of parties involved, but eventually Steam will get every patch we release.

    Thats nice. Where is the android version of BG:EE?

    We have two sides of development. On one side is content development; that's where things like NPC and quest content, basic bug fixes, and new products like BG2EE get created. That work is on-going, and certainly won't stop any time soon. It's the work that ensures you do get a patch when a patch is needed (although sometimes you have to wait a while).

    On the other side is engine development; that's where things like performance enhancements, renderer fixes, and platform compatibility happen. This is the side that works on stability for Windows, Mac, iPad, and Android.

    So in other words, the Android version is being worked on by a separate team from BG2EE. I hope that clears things up a bit.

    I'm glad you've made it! And by the way, I've got a suggestion: let sub-races, like drow, sun elves, duergars etc., be playable. That would be a nice improvement, in terms of role-play.

    Will BG2EE be available on steam? That's a rather important question to me :)
  • MERLANCEMERLANCE Posts: 308Member
    Huh, I certainly never expected it this soon. Still makes me full of joy and happiness, and its right in time for my yearly BG2 playthrough (which is usually Decemberish)

    Well, any plans in charge the game in the currency of the customer country? The dollar is too high in my country atm TT. Well, it can drop until november, but who knows? By the way, an alternative way of payment would be nice also, in Brazil we're more adept on bank slip.

    Santander Bank, that belongs to the Santander group, the largest bank in the eurozone is viable maybe? Well Citybank is also viable and with a good amount of agencies in Brazil (at least in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo) :)!

    Ps: No pre-order discount to people that pre-ordere BG:EE (and thus have pre-order badges)?

    All I can say is after all the false promises and balls ups with the first release I don't think you deserve any of my money.

    Will it be on steam on 11/15?
  • DeeDee Posts: 6,199Member, Administrator, Moderator, BGEE Team Member, Beta Tester

    Will it be on steam on 11/15?

    Likely not. That's not to say it will never be released on Steam, but at launch (Nov. 15) it will most likely only be available from Beamdog.

    No pre-order for me, but Hexxat seems like an interesting addition to the roster and the visuals are impressive.
