Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition developer Beamdog has announced a 25 hour expansion bridging the gap between the RPG and its sequel.

Baldur’s Gate: Adventure Y is exactly what Beamdog promised it would be – an all new game presenting the heretofore untold tale of what happened between Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2.

An expansion to Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, Siege of Dragonspear boasts 25 hours of content and has not yet been priced or dated, but is expected before the end of the year on Linux, Mac and PC. It will come to Android and iOS “shortly thereafter”.

You do need to own Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition to play Siege of Dragonspear, and can import your character and save from the base game – as well as export it to Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition. It supports up to six players in cross-play co-op multiplayer.

Below you’ll find a trailer, story blurb and feature list.

Though Sarevok is dead and his plan for war averted, peace eludes the citizens of Baldur’s Gate. A crusade marches from the north, seizing supplies, forcing locals into military service, and disrupting trade along the Sword Coast. A charismatic warrior known as the Shining Lady leads this army, her background shrouded in mystery. Can the rumors be true—is she, like you, the child of a god?

The closer you get to the Shining Lady, the more you realize your father, the dead Lord of Murder still casts a long shadow upon your path. Baldur’s Gate has put its faith in you, but you must determine whose interests you truly serve before you face the Shining Lady among the ruins of Dragonspear Castle.

Making good on the promise of its countdown teaser, Beamdog made the announcement via a Twitch stream before returning the website to its original form. A dedicated Siege of Dragonspear hub has been opened if you want more information.
