LINUX GAMING --
A few days ago Beamdog announced Siege Of Dragonspear, an expansion pack for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition.

For those not in the know: Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a 2012 HD-update to the critically acclaimed role-playing game that was originally released in 1998. Baldur's Gate is a top-down 2D isometric strategy-rolep-laying game wherein you control a party of one to six characters and attempt to bring peace to The Sword Coast region of Faerun. Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition was released for Linux.

Siege Of Dragonspear itself will bridge the gap between Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, covering the time between the fall of Saurvok, and the rise of Irenicius. The expansion is expected to take about 25-hours to complete. The expansion will include four new characters, one new class, four new areas to explore, as well as upgrades to the user interface and underlying game engine.


No release date has been formally announced yet, but when the expansion is released it will be available on Windows XP and newer, Mac OS X 10.8 and newer, iOS 7 and newer, Android 4.4 and newer, as well as being available for Linux. The only officially supported distribution is "Ubuntu 12+", not sure 12.10 or 12.04, but the games tend to run perfectly fine on other distributions.
