baldursgate.png A new website has surfaced seemingly hinting at a upcoming addition to the Baldur's Gate series of RPG's.

So far this website just gives us a a small tease of what may come. The page features a theme song playing in the background and the following text:

"The Lord of Murder shall perish, but in his doom he shall spawn a score of mortal progeny, chaos will be sown by their passage."

So sayeth the wise Alaundo

However that is not all. If you attempt to view the source the following text appears:

Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine

For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory.

And then... it returned. Better than it was before.

Pore over the tapestries and works of art hanging from our walls if you wish, Child of Bhaal... perhaps you will find a clue. But patience, ah... patience would reveal it all.

As the silver moon waxes and wanes, so too does life.

Beamdog is the studio behind this mysterious webpage. Beamdog features several former BioWare employees like Trent Oster. People have asked him if the page was in any way connected to the upcoming complete edition of Baldur's Gate on Steam. Trent Oster has denied any connection with the release of the Baldur's Gate pack on Steam. So after 11 years, it seems that we may see a entirely new addition to the franchise.
