    After seven months of blowing smoke and wasting our time with Divinity: Original Sin 2 Switch ports and board games, Larian are at last ready to reveal some Baldur's Gate 3 gameplay. After teasing it on social media last month, today they formally announced that the game will be shown at PAX East on February 27th, live on stage with YouTube gaming personality Jesse Cox. Here's the announcement from the latest issue of the Larian Gazette:



    We are excited to announce the eagerly anticipated gameplay reveal of Baldur’s Gate 3. Our Creative Director Swen Vincke will be playing live on stage with Jesse Cox, revealing more about the story, mechanics, and the answers to much asked questions. With seating for 1000 people, don’t worry if you can’t make it to the live show, it’ll also be streamed on YouTube. For those at PAX, there will also be a short, live Q&A where your questions can be asked and answered.

    We will also be present in the expo hall of PAX East, with an all-new booth dedicated to Baldur’s Gate 3. At the booth, our team will be serving up live gameplay presentations for the entire weekend, starting after the live show concludes.

    Baldur’s Gate 3 was announced back at E3 last year, and since then we’ve have been continuing to grow to 350 people (including outsourcers), and working on new technology and pipelines that allow the team to create a truly next-generation RPG, spanning 100+ hours of content, with all the depth you’d expect, and many surprises along the way that even fans of critically acclaimed Divinity Original Sin 2 won’t expect.

    Tune in on February 27 at 1530ET to discover why we've been quiet over the past few months, and which direction the studio is heading.
    The drama will be glorious.

    UPDATE: Larian have announced on Twitter that their presentation at PAX East has been extended by half an hour and will now begin at 3pm ET. This is going to be big.

    Isometric + turn-based combat confirmed? Or at least an option to toggle between RtWP/TB? Pretty, pretty please?

    Edit: apparently I don't know how to embed images, but you get the glimpse of gameplay screen from the "announcement of the announcement" video at 0:23

    350+ devs? If this is an isometric game, it will probably be the most expensive one in history.

    That screenshot doesn't have to mean isometric.
    All 3D level editors allow you to move the camera around as the level artist requires at the moment.

    Good point, now I think it looks more like a lvl design thingy, not necessarily tied to any fixed perspective.

    Anyway, a friend of mine who works at a studio which was used by Larian as an outsourcing outlet told me not to get too excited for BG3, but I'm afraid I cannot help it...

    I'm super excited because this game has the same words in the name as the games I really like.

    Actually, I'm not. I'm feeling like Irenicus trying to get a boner from watching his sex slave dryads roleplaying Ellesime.

    SoD has decent encounters and good exploration. Story is absolute shit though.
    Also, the guy in charge of your money gets beaten up and robbed by refugees who say they need the money but then just spend it on getting drunk.
