    {Early Access} Baldur's Gate III (PC/STD) - Larian Studios (NOT YET 100% CONFIRMED)

    Larian Studios, makers of Divinity: Original Sin series, is teasing a "III" logo on their website. First thought is that it's Divinity: Original Sin III, but according to sources, if you save the video on the website, and open it in a text editor, you will see Baldurs Gate 3 and Wizards of the Coast references.

    Pillars of Eternity I/II were good, though admittedly, I probably won't finished II. Bauldur's Gate III would hulk-smash those two though.

    not exactly sure what they'd do with it the Bhaalspawn saga was wrapped up p perfectly in Throne of Bhaal. Divinity OS II was so flippin good tho i'll give em a chance on anything, knowing them they'll prolly just yeet it and advance the world forwards or backwards a thousand years with a brand new narrative.

    nah but really Illithid transformations aside i'm hyped Larian's last release was one of the greatest CRPGs ever made. still wonder how it will tie into the series, and will pour one out for THAC0.

    Larian Studios is proud to announce that it is developing and publishing Baldur’s Gate III on PC and Google Stadia. Created in close collaboration with the Dungeons & Dragons team at Wizards of the Coast, Baldur’s Gate III is based off current D&D mechanics and spells and is the official new chapter in the legendary series.

    Baldur’s Gate III will push the boundaries of the RPG genre and offer a rich narrative with unparalleled player freedom, high-stakes decisions, unique companion characters and memorable combat. It is Larian Studios’ biggest production ever and will be playable together with friends or as a single-player adventure.

    The teaser trailer shows a return of a malevolent presence to Baldur's Gate, intent on devouring it from the inside out, corrupting everything that remains in the Forgotten Realms.

    Alone you may resist, but together you can overcome. Gather your party.

    “Baldur's Gate means so much to so many people. It's a great responsibility but I think we're ready for it,” said Swen Vincke, Creative Director at Larian Studios. “We're all about creating reactive, systemic worlds that respect player agency and having a chance to apply our team's skillset in a universe as rich as Dungeons & Dragons is a lot of fun. We're working very closely with Wizards to bring an unprecedented level of immersion to the realm of Faerun and I can't wait to show the world what our team cooked up."

    “Partnering with Larian, a studio that combines a remarkable history of critically-acclaimed titles with a genuine passion for one of the most iconic locations in Dungeons & Dragons, has been a terrific experience,” said Chris Cocks, President of Wizards of the Coast. “We believe fans of the Baldur’s Gate saga – and even those new to the series – will be thrilled to step into this epic story.”

    Larian Studios plans to work closely with the global community to bring the coveted series to life, with more news to follow over the course of the year.

    I thought BG would be the right generation for this hype. Come looking for the thread and see 3 posts.

    Looks like they're using 5e rules. Or at least it takes place in 5e campaign settings.

    Yeah some of the die hards are complaining about this. "Babby's first D & D game" or whatever.

    I don't know enough about D & D to complain about it, and even if they dumb down the rules a bit, it's still only a game. You're not playing actual D & D. THAC0 is still the craziest shit to me after all these years.

    Larian is great at making CRPG's and with the license, I'm sure it will be nothing short of amazing.

    4E rules were fucking garbage, but 5E is fine.

    If the diehards so desperately need old school rules (well, 3.5 anyways) in a PC CRPG they can just go play Pathfinder Kingmaker.

    THAC0 is gone and never coming back, thank God.
