Baldur's Gate - BaldursGate.com Stirs Awake

by Dhruin, 2012-02-29 06:50:59

Vurt posts on our forums that BaldursGate.com is suddenly alive, over a decade after the trilogy ended. As I post, the site seems to be down but earlier there was a single page with the logo, main theme music and an in-game quote. A Whois search reveals Trent Oster - former BioWare employee and founder of digital vendor Beamdog - as the registrant.

GameBanshee let us know they reached out to Trent who told them they were hoping to make an announcement soon.

One theory would be some sort of remake - you may recall Beamdog has previously released MDK2 HD, an official HD makeover for BioWare's old action/adventure.

The source code for the page is certainly suggestive, with text such as:

<!— February 13, 2012 —>

<!— Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine —>

<!— oh dear it's coming soon —>


<!— February 28, 2012 —>

<!— Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine —>

<!— You haven't guessed it yet! —>

Hmmm...should we get excited?
