Tags: Baldur's Gate 3; David Walgrave; Larian Studios

Yesterday Wizards of the Coast inaugurated a new Dungeons & Dragons digital event called D&D Direct. In recent years Wizards have talked about producing more D&D video games, but nothing of the sort was announced during the event. However, they did get Larian to put together a new Baldur's Gate 3 trailer. It's just a hyped up development recap, but it does officially confirm that the game is releasing next year.


Larian are also showcasing Baldur's Gate 3 at PAX East this weekend, so perhaps there'll be more news about it soon.

Cringe as fuck. I hope it ends up like VtMB 2.
ask Delterius those levels of larp do not compare

pre-orders for both games are traded in multiple forex exchanges. the nations of botswana, new zealand, and the occupied quebec territories are all entirely backed by bg3 pre-orders. vtmb2 pre-orders are the only thing keeping scotland and england united.

That video is an old one. They were all relocated to Malaysia from Saint-Petersburg due to the (((current thing))). With an anal job contract for 2 years - if they leave, they have to compensate the relocation expenses.

Cut ties with, say goodbye to all your friends, your kids will get traumatized for life and go to a school with slant eyed chimps and grow up part Malaysians, your wife won't ever get a job there, you won't ever learn their language, and on top of it all it's a poor, Muslim shit hole. And they all went there like cattle. I've seen cults less controlling than Sven. What the actual fuck.

People with zero self-respect and who don't value personal freedom can't make anything decent. They do a performative job like a wage slave, with a performative formulaic result, with zero initiative or imagination. Tada - it's "BG" 3.

I can just ride this train to the end station, since I have the "ticket" anyway. Hopefully there will be some actual RPG in between sex scenes with the abominations you are forced to be in party with.
Speak what you want about Pathfinder:WoTR, at least your party is not as boring and annoying as the ones from BG3, and if you don't like them, you can just go lich and travel with undead.

Why the hell anyone would want to larp as a Russians? It's like wanting to larp as drunken hobo that lives in wilderness, with inferiority complex and the need to prove to the world how powerful they are.
Even Germans are less pathetic than this. At least their cities used to not be so shitty(before rapefuges) and their cars used to be better.

Has anyone managed to figure out what this game has to do with the previous two entries in the series yet?
It takes place in and around the city of Baldur's Gate. In Baldur's Gate 2, your character sets back an Illithid invasion.

(also Minsc is allegedly a companion)

What do you mean "allegedly"? Including le epic Minsc character and his funi so random XDDDDD hamster Boo is a foregone conclusion. Minsc IS Baldur's Gate.

Imagine being so bereft of originality that you base your game's plot around a sidequest in a previous title.

It hasn't been officially announced yet.

Nothing at all wrong with expanding a minor element of a previous title into the primary reason for a sequel. That's where Irenicus came from.

I don't know what you guys are laughing about. Sven somehow managed to make each individual's relocation cost 30k dollars. Probably rented a 2 floor boeing or some shit. A relocation that normally costs 1k, he made it cost 30k. And if they leave in the next 2 years, they have to pay up $ 30k. Which they can't, given that their salary is $ 1.5k. What do you call a job you can't quit? It's called slavery.

He acquired literal slavic slaves in the 21 century. Do you think this is okay or funny? My parents immigrated to Belgium when I was a kid, it traumatized me big time. Imagine being relocated to an asian muslim shit hole as a kid. If Schreier had any honesty in him, he'd be writing articles about this. Sven is the most manipulative and sociopathic employer I've ever heard of. It's to the point where buying BG3 is unethical.

Wow, that sounds horrible for Russians. I wonder who did this to them.... what sort of a nation would put Russians in such a situation.... what horde of unwashed orcs would attack a brotherly people and cause... oh. Oh, that's right, YOU GET WHAT YOU FUCKING DESERVE.
Meanwhile, the educated younger Russians will form a White Russian nation in diaspora, and go live in the EU or wherever. Half the young Russians will die on the battlefield, the other half will rent their labour in Kaufland and Lidl, and this is the stupid price you win for playing stupid games.

Can't wait to play Baldur's Gate 3 though, DOS1/2 were great cooperative experiences, I'm sure this will be too.
