game?

It seems like it could potentially be a very big part of the game maybe even all of Act 2? Any word on this?

Act 2 (or at least the first map of it if there are multiple maps) will have both underdark and surface options. These are explicitly presented to party.

there is also a rumor that the Hag could return in Act 2. That would explain why there is a portal to her lair from the Underdark and back

Is there any suggestion, Menzobarranzan will be added to the game?

Menzobarranzan is located very far away to the north. Canonically I don’t think that any dark elf cities exist near Baldur’s Gate.

There is a city under Baldur's Gate, sort of, in the same region; it's called Sshamath. It's a magocracy tradecity. But that is strictly lore; not sure if there'll be any such thing in the game proper.

I doubt act 2 will take place anywhere other than Baldur's Gate

I guessing Act 2 centred around Moonrise Towers and the Underdark area connected to it, Act 3 in Baldur's Gate where we get involved in the city, meet up with people we helped in Act 1/companion quests that culminate in the City (Astarion has his master, Shadowheart has her cult, Wyll is a local "hero", Gale needs help for his Orb problem etc), with a final Act in Avernus where we battle/join the Absolute and deal with all the interesting characters in the first layer.


Read the fine print.

I think the whole Moonrise Towers is the conclusion of Act 1. We are only getting 80 -90% of the act.

I agree, opening Act 2 in Baldur's Gate seems logical as it would be a big story hub. I also suspect Act 2 will be the longest act and contain a lot of optional side quest content.

Yes, it seems like there is an underdark or overland route planned for the first primary objective of Act 1. There is already a good chunk of underdark gameplay in the EA.
