Hello! BG fan here. I am here to tell you that what I saw was a Baldur's Gate game. I have wanted more Baldur's Gate since 2001 and I am very happy that I will at last be able to get that.
Then tell me what was baldurs gate on what you saw. What besides the name?
A dark story set on the Sword Coast around Baldur's Gate that I know will revolve around an Illithid invasion. Even more so there were mentions of the hells even early in the game and I am sure that our travels will take us there again. A perfect evolution of gameplay mechanics to capture the DnD rules.

And this is with only the very little information that has been released so far.
