It took longer than we ever hoped, but Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is finally in opt-in beta for Linux. It may have taken over a year and a half, but they really are about to deliver on their promise. Better late than never right?

The password is "marchofpenguins", so you need to use that on the beta section of the game properties on Steam.

Official About
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.

Actually it doesn't seem necessary to activate the beta - I was able to download and play the game without doing so.

BG is a 16 year old game with a community that's still modding today. It would be impossible to list all the mods available.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. What did you refer to as "my mods" that you consider so critical that you're not interested in playing till they work?

Edit: actually "what mods" was altogether poorly worded, I really meant "which mods"
