Google's Stadia Connect showcase opened with a bang, announcing that Baldur's Gate 3, the long-awaited sequel to two of the most beloved RPG's of all time, is in development at Larian Studios, the developer behind Divinity: Original Sin 2.
Check out the beautiful 'uncut' first trailer for Baldur's Gate 3.
Baldur's Gate 3 is the first main game in the series since Baldur's Gate 2, which released 19 years ago in 2000. This announcement has been a long time coming.
Larian Studios have provided a description of the title, which is officially not a Google Stadia exclusive, it will also come to PC according to a tweet from Kotaku's Jason Shreier. Here's Larian's description:
"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".
Swen Vincke, Creative Director at Larian Studios has spoken about the announcement, saying, "Baldur's Gate means so much to so many people. It's a great responsibility but I think we're ready for it. 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".
Baldur's Gate 3 did not get a release date, but Larian will release more news over the course of the year.
Baldur's Gate, and Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced Editions recently got announced for consoles, including the Nintendo Switch, alongside a few other classic D&D titles.
