Here's the plot to Siege of Dragonspear, from Beamdog:
Though Sarevok is dead and his plan for war averted, peace eludes the citizens of Baldur's Gate. A crusade marches from the north, seizing supplies, forcing locals into military service, and disrupting trade along the Sword Coast. A charismatic warrior known as the Shining Lady leads this army, her background shrouded in mystery. Can the rumors be true—is she, like you, the child of a god?
The closer you get to the Shining Lady, the more you realize your father, the dead Lord of Murder still casts a long shadow upon your path. Baldur's Gate has put its faith in you, but you must determine whose interests you truly serve before you face the Shining Lady among the ruins of Dragonspear Castle...
Beamdog promises Siege of Dragonspear will provide 25-hours of new gameplay that expands the story of the original Bhaalspawn saga. The game will use an improved version of the original Infinity Engine that was used by theBaldur's Gate games, which are still considered to be among the best RPGs of all time.
Release window and pricing for Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear were not announced.
