Larian Studios (known for the Divinity series) today made the long-awaited Baldur’s Gate 3 announcement that we were all waiting for. After rumours and much talk, Baldur’s Gate 3 has officially been revealed and fans couldn’t be more eager to hopefully find out more next week at E3 2019.
The trailer runs for a minute and a half and shows a soldier getting devoured from the inside out by a malevolent presence. We also see more of them in the skies above, and a crumbling war-torn city in the background.
“Baldur’s Gate means so much to so many people. It’s a great responsibility but I think we’re ready for it,” stated 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.”
