When may I pre-order SoD?

I'm just curious. Is there any news about a date? And is a price-point still being discussed?

Sorry for sounding like everyone else, I'm sure. I really don't have time to sift through the forum too often because of my schoolwork.

And I *DO NOT* want to miss the pre-order. XD

    Have you stopped beating your wife? :)

    As far as I know, there is not confirmation that there will be a pre-order, unfortunately...

    The current price that is rumored is around $20 USD (although $19.98 has been brought up as a nod to the year BG came out). As for a date, all we know is "when it is ready."

    As with their previous games they are likely to start pre-oreders when the game goes into beta. That way the beta testers can pay for the game before testing.

    Alas! I've played the merry hell out of BG1 and the Black Pits.
    I've single player'd, ran a multiplayer 6xparty, roleplayed it, powergamed it.
    I'm ready to move on.

    (although i'm not sure whether to use my BG1 charname with the equipment/pantaloons, or the Black Pit one with the higher XP)

    I'm ripe and ready for BG2... My card details are burning a hole in my hand...
    But if this expansion fits between them then I....have....to.....do....it....in.....order.....
    PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE release this soon, or I may *polymorphself* #explodingchicken

    @Grammarsalad Actually the woman beats me! Lol, I think it's because I play too much Baldur's Gate though.

    They have to QA two games + the expansion that they are attempting to release. They're gonna want all three patched and bug free before promising anything.

    With no deadline, people are just anxious/curious for news and after a while perhaps get a little angry. With a stated deadline, people get upset when that deadline isn't met. They've learned from previous tries.

    Ship dates cause buggy releases. Be glad SoD doesn't have one.

    @Dee I think that above all I want the game to not be buggy.

    so what for was the announcement? why you announce game, which was almost two months ago, and then say absolutely nothing? just big silence

    The expansion is coming. They past the do not shelve date.
    They want to generate hype and maybe push some more BG:ee sales as you can not play the expansion without it.
    As I said above, since it takes part between 1 and 2, anything they change needs to be changed for both games.
    They are far from silent as the updates to the All You Wanted To Know thread shows.
    Patience.

    THE HYPE! Ohh, how hyped I was when heard Jim Cumming's voice again!

    After watching the trailer I'm still: "I want to taste it!"

    yes but that only gave us a sweet taste of something yummy , and now , now there is nothing to eat

    @wojtek: No offense intended, but maybe you should find something meaningful to do in the meantime? As far as I can see, everything the game developers have done so far has been spot on.

    I mean... if hype's the goal, they're not doing a great job: nobody's talking about this. Not Kotaku, not io9, not RPS, not Destructoid, not The Escapist. Hell, even the WOTC website has Sword Coast Legends on the front page. Not a word of follow-up after the official announcement.

    That's simply not true. There're a lot of sites and forums with discussions about SoD.

    http://www.sorcerers.net/ even have a special poll on their site: On a scale of 1-5, how excited about the announcement of Siege of Dragonspear (by Beamdog) are you?

    http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/beamdog-announce-baldurs-gate-siege-of-dragonspear-with-chris-avellone-onboard.101204/ with 290 comments

    Even https://forums.swordcoast.com/index.php?/topic/2303-baldurs-gate-siege-of-dragonspear/

    Maybe the SoD coverage is not huge (as for popular games) but it is still there and the hype among the BG fans is increasing.

    i have something meaningful to do thanks for your advice, i am talking about my favorite game, that's why i am curious to know more about it, maybe you don't get it because you don't feel the same way

    Forum posts aren't coverage. You really don't want RPGCodex's stance on Beamdog in general and the EEs in particular to be public knowledge, or to be perceived as the official position of a gaming news outlet.

  • JuliusBorisovJuliusBorisov Member, Administrator, Moderator, Developer Posts: 21,725
    People are talking, this is the main thing. It creates waves and waves, even if the source of the talking is negative.

    Also, don't underestimate this forum. I know there're a lot of new users who have come here only because they've heard about SoD and/or watched the trailer. The new members area shows that it is the thing.

    This forum is live and more and more forumites are joining it. It's a proof that the news of SoD is spreading.

    I know a lot of russian sites that more or less connected to BG and RPG games in general where the progress of SoD is being monitored and this site serves them as a coverage.

    The "facts thread" has 11.4K views, it's a lot - a thread about Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition patch 1.4 got only 11.1k views up until now.

    I'm talking about it! All the time! Admittedly, its almost always to myself, in half hysterical outbursts that other's might mistake for insane ramblings. But I can't help it. I'm excited!

    Well i check this thread way to much, it would make me happy to just pre-order it and give my mind a rest knowing i have reserved a copy and have got as forum badge :) . Completely irrational i know.

    Same here, I really don't mind pre-ordering now and waiting however long it takes to be ready. If Beamdog getting some money now means the possibility of even more content and certainly more polish, then *please* let us pre-order *soon*! ;)
