Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition Trent Oster Interview @ True PC Gaming

True PC Gaming has talked to Trent Oster from Beamdog,   the company behind the Enhanced Edition of this game. They talk about the price point, the reasons behind giving Baldur's Gate the "Enhanced Edition" treatment,  as well as questions about the new  NPCs, and much much more.

A quote on the new NPCs:

Walk us through the development process of creating the new characters and stories in Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition.

 We took a look at the existing game, what we were going to be adding, and started to see what was missing. There were classes and kits that were never used for party members, and we wanted to fill those gaps and tell and interesting story while doing so. Using Baldur’s Gate 2 NPCs as our guide, we started to explore what interesting stories these new NPCs could tell.  In the case of Dorn, we wanted a character that would be unapologetically evil, without any remorse for his actions. His tale is quite different from most NPC villains; most of the evil characters have some redeeming feature, or they were forced into their path. Dorn is simply a bad man who knows full well the depths of his evil and does not regret it.
