Stadia Connect didn’t only focus on Google’s game streaming service, but there were a few announcements as well. As a fan of old-school RPGs, the one announcement that really blew me away was that of Baldur’s Gate 3, which is being created by the developers behind Divinity: Original Sin 2, Larian Studios in collaboration with Wizards of the Coast.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is a new adventure set in the Forgotten Realms as players and their party will set off on an adventure of epic proportions. From the teaser trailer which you can view at the bottom of this article, it looks like Mind Flayers will play an important role and they aren’t just in the Underdark anymore, but out and about accompanied by all those Cthulu-like tentacles.
With Larian Studios at the helm, Baldur’s Gate 3 will combine the best of Divinity and 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons for the biggest project in the developer’s history. A short description of the game reads:
That doesn’t say much, but GameSpot did have an in-depth interview with the head of Larian Studios, Swen Vincke, speaking about the collaboration between the developer and Wizards of the Coast, the D&D rules and much more.
The biggest and most exciting part of the interview that really stood out for me was when asked about the scope of Baldur’s Gate 3 and how it is the studio’s biggest RPG ever made, which is saying something when you think about the Divinity franchise. Mr Vincke’s response makes me extremely excited and you can check it out below.
I, for one, am extremely excited to hear more about Baldur’s Gate 3 and thankfully, we won’t have to wait long, as the game will be at the PC Gaming Show during E3 2019.
