The Linux version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is now available DRM free from GOG, so if you missed it on Steam here's a new chance to get the classic.

I know there's a few readers here who much prefer buying from GOG, so go get it and support Linux gaming!

About the game
Since its initial release in 1998, Baldur's Gate has entertained millions of fans around the globe and has received countless awards. This classic saga of mystery, intrigue, and adventure has set the standard for Dungeons & Dragons™ computer roleplaying games ever since.

Running on an upgraded and improved version of the Infinity Engine, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition™ includes the entire Baldur's Gate adventure, the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, and never-before-seen content including a new adventure and three new party members: the Calishite monk Rasaad yn Bashir, Neera the wild mage, and Dorn Il-Khan, the evil blackguard.

I've never played any of these games, sadly. As I'm a huge RPG fan, which one should I pick, Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale?
drmoth 27 Nov, 2014
Same. I went for Icewind Dale because it looked shorter and more polished. I think it's more action focussed and has less emphasis on story than BG. Both look very similar though, same engine. The stories are unrelated so take your pick..BG is pretty huge though. They're both pretty lightweight performance wise, playing on an HD4000 Intel card with zero issues, very smooth.

Also, Baldur's Gate on Steam is working, just no penguin icon yet on the store page.

That really depends on what you value more: an interesting story and companions with personality, or a dungeon crawl with a personality-less party you created yourself?

Ah, nice. So do both Baldur's Gate (on steam) work on Linux yet?

(Looks like they don't. Just the first one, with a beta code from the steam forums - it's a sticky there, can't miss it)

edit: just bought Baldur's Gate. Happy gaming!

I bought days ago the Sam & Max collection, it was very cheap and looks great (as any telltale game). I hope wine can handle it well. In my dreams they will support Linux lol.
Since the Linux support arrived, GOG is definitely a great option to get games, their philosophy is great.

How bug free is the Enhanced Edition in it's current state? I bought it from Beamdog's site last year but I'm willing buy it again from GOG. I know the game had a buggy start but went through a lot of improvements over time, but I'm still slightly worried about any game breaking bugs.

Thanks for thinking in us.

I'll buy it now.

PS : Glad you finally return to stay.

While I do intend to buy it as I really should play a Bioware title at some point considering they are supposed to be the local golden boy developer from where I am from, paying $20 for a game is a bit too steep for my blood at the moment.
