Baldur's Gate 2 - Enhanced Edition Will Feature 350,000 More Words
 
Dualshockers has a small news article that talks about Baldur's Gate 2 - Enhanced Edition.

Did you Like Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition? I did. If you agree you probably already know that Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition is currently being worked on at Overhaul Games.

What you possibly didn’t yet know is the sheer size of the additional content that the remake will bring. Producer and Writer Phillip Daigle revealed on his personal Twitter account that the team wrote 350,000 words for of new content, and they’re going to try to get some of those many lines voiced.

That giant wall of text (and hopefully voice) adds to the 1.2 million words of the original, ensuring that even those that already played the game a metric ton of times like I did, will definitely have quite a lot to discover with the remake.
More information.

What the 350,000 words will be :
''Bug fix #1''
''Bug Fix # 2'' :roll:

I had to make this one but jokes aside,the developers seem to have been working really hard on BG: EE supporting their game.

Well the original games untouched were full of bugs still, but by adding more content you just create more.

One of the good things about BG2 was the quality of the writing. Just hope they manage to retain that in their 350,000 additional words of dialogue.

I was very disappointed in BG1 enhanced edition. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Probably pass on this.

Risine April 20th, 2013 15:47

And now, we are counting words in video games, as an argument to prove its quality. OMG !!!

If the writing is on the "quality" level of the first Enhanced Edition, I'm not sure I want any of those 350,000.

Yoikes! A typical fiction novel is ~100,000 words long; that's a whole lot of reading.

JDR13 April 20th, 2013 21:00

I thought BG: EE was great aside from being a bit buggy upon release. The devs have proven they're dedicated to supporting these games though. I'm looking forward to BG2.

Badesumofu April 20th, 2013 21:04

A typical fantasy fiction novel is more like 240 000 words, though.

I'm all for unlocking content that was completed before the original release but not put into the final game— assuming said content has been fixed, of course. But adding brand new content exclusive to the EE is not something I am in favor of.

RampantCoyote April 21st, 2013 02:15

I enjoyed BG:EE (and while it wasn't spectacular, I enjoyed the new added content I saw). I'm sure I'll be picking this one up. BG2 remains one of my all-time favorites.

spiraling69 April 21st, 2013 03:10

of course I'll buy it, because it's Baldur's Gate! The only thing I would really like to see is better avatar graphics. What use is zoom if all you see are blocks? I get that they lost the 2D art, but please remake the avatars!

Carnifex April 21st, 2013 04:07

I really enjoyed their version of BG 1, and I'll be getting the BG 2 version as soon as they make it available. Heck, I'm planning to replay BG maybe next month.

When the hell are they going to update the ipad version of the original? It still has many problems like slowdown during aoe spells and they havent addresss this while working on the sexond already? Makes no sense for your mobile fans. Plus, it hasnt even been minor updated in like a month. I blame this on the pcrpg community including RPGFan hating apple.

RPGFan is a more heavily console centric site and considering their traditional RPG of the year award went to a console-only JRPG the last years in a row, I don't think they at all represent the CRPG crowd as much as a JRPG crowd that also plays a few WRPGs but mostly on consoles. Their editors might view the iPad as some crazy contraption trying to be a nintendo DS but without the buttons. Or maybe by using yourself as the measure their dispassionate disinterest in Apple and Apple products merely seems like hate by comparison.

Even without the slowdowns on the iPad, it's not really playable for me the touch controls are too tedious.

Trying to click on items, position my guys, etc just seems more like work than fun. Too used to the mouse I guess.

AppleIntimidation April 21st, 2013 07:41

If they updated it, they could make it work and a huge success with a new audience. Why do they have to be so lazy? The touchscreen is just fine for this type of game as long as its at least as latge as the iPad Mini's.
