But that is not the only good news. The developer also teased what’s to come in a cryptic message hinting at the next adventure on the Sword Coast.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#FA4E1D” class=”” size=”21″]You are burdened with a great power devouring you from within. How far down the path of darkness will you let it take you? The fate of Faerûn is on your party’s shoulders. Will you carry it to salvation, or descend with it to hell?”[/perfectpullquote]
They then released an image which you can see below that may be in reference to Descent in Avernus, the Dungeons and Dragons tabletop campaign book that may act as a prequel Baldur’s Gate 3. The image shows a Mind Flayer and the process of ceremorphosis which sees the parasite transform a host into a fully-grown Flayer.
The reveal will take place at 22:30 SAT on 27 February 2020 for those who want to tune in. Anyone who is a fan of the series is no doubt very excited to see this gameplay reveal. I know I am.
