Baldur's Gate 3 Screenshots Show How The D&D Game Looks
Get a better look at Baldur's Gate 3.
Baldur's Gate 3 had its first gameplay reveal at PAX East, and Larian Studio has marked the announcement with a huge batch of screenshots showing the Dungeons & Dragons adventure. You can check them out below.
Larian Studios has talked about taking on the Baldur's Gate legacy, including some of its own changes. It's using a turn-based combat system instead of real-time, which it says simply made sense for this game. It will also allow you to romance any companion, but other characters will also be pursuing their own romantic interests.
Baldur's Gate 3 will use the Divinity 4.0 engine, built on the work Larian did for Divinity Original Sin and Divinity Original Sin 2. Those games were highly-regarded in their own right and helped cement the studio as the one to take on the Baldur's Gate franchise. Divinity Original Sin 2 is one of only a handful of games to have been awarded a 10/10 review from GameSpot.
Baldur's Gate 3 puts you in the unfortunate role of someone infected with a Mind Flayer parasite, corrupting you from within. But unexpectedly, it also imbues you with a building power that you'll tap as you proceed on your quest. It's coming to PC and Stadia, with an Early Access period planned.
