Going to be a long EA; up to a year according to the Steam page.  Will release into EA with ACT I.

Be advised though: EA only includes Act 1.
"Pilots do not get paid for what they do daily, but they get paid for what they are capable of doing.
However, if pilots would need to do daily what they are capable of doing, nobody would dare to fly anymore.

If Minsc and Boo are not in it - I don't want it.

Evil has gone on too long without a thorough butt-kicking!   :D

Mmmm ... some types of games ok for EA ... not sure of the point for an RPG
"you are the rule maker, the dictator, the mini- Stalin, Mao, Hitler, the emperor, generalissimo, the MAN. You may talk the talk and appear to be quite easy going to foster popularity, but to the MAN I say F*CK YOU." And Steve G is F******g rude ? Just another day on the BF forum ... one demented idiots reaction to BF disagreeing about the thickness of the armour on a Tiger II turret mantlet.

Yes, still early access release....although the price seems to be what a normal release would be:)

Thanks.  I really enjoyed BG:1 and 2 but wonder if 3 will be an 'in-name-only' connection to the first two.  I'm not saying it is or isn't. I await the input from posters on this site for the answer...!

^ Agree!  I eagerly await Sir Slash's opinion on BG.  He understands the deep meaning of Minsc and Boo.   :)
