    I am very happy that the art they've shown so far looks more like Baldur's Gate than Divinity Original Sin. More realistic, less cartoony. I hope the actual in-game art is, too. The little teaser video they have playing on their website (https://baldursgate3.game/) feels very much like the opening scene to BG1 with Sarevok on the roof (though a little less cinematic, given its duration).

    Discussion of D&D/AD&D was a better use of this thread than anything concerning the game itself, given the paucity of information. :rpgcodex:

    I don't see them go first person.

    Unless you got no companion in the game, otherwise it would be a nightmare to control them in first person.

    the mo-cap is likely just for cut-scenes, which might be first person so they won't have to show your character.

    ugh, another useless video with 0 information.

    February 27, larian shows a bunch of in-engine cutscenes and call it "gameplay".
    Half a year later, larian shows a bunch of combat finishers with cinematic camera and with hud turned off and call it "combat showcase".
    Year later, larian shows a pre-rendered intro and call it story trailer.

    where is the game, lebowski?

    When this game disappoints us and turns out to be nothing like the BG series rpgcodex should host a Baldur's Gate 1 replay where we can all act like the game just came out and we're discovering everything for the first time. We can act like we don't know where all the items or companions are or how the game works and can give each other tips.

    Alternatively, we could do that for BG2 which is actually still worth playing in 2020

    I agree that bg2 is better but disagree that BG 1 isn't playable. But mainly I feel like playing bg1 would be more poetic or whatever.

    Either way on its release I'm going to be playing bg1 and I'm going to make a thread and hope you all join me. This is all assuming Larian does some stupid shit and makes dos3 rather than bg3.

    I like how the mocap people in the trailer are sometimes just standing there before acting.

    I'm not an expert on medieval weaponry but I find it silly to see mocap actors are holding plastic bows, weapons and shields.

    How can you get good results by relying on toys?
