Baldur's Gate 1 + 2 Full Story Recap

Before the eventual release of Baldur's Gate 3, we thought it would be fun to go through the 1998 adventures of Gorion's Ward, Sarevok, Minsc, Volo and the rest of the gang from Baldur's Gate 1 + 2 as we recount the main stories of the base games, as well as the Siege of Dragonspear and Throne of Bhaal expansions.

With the October 6 release of Baldur's Gate 3, we are taking a look at the game that started it all. The 1998 classic Baldur's Gate, which follows the adventures of Imoen, Minsc, and the rest of the companions that follow the player through Faerun, Baldur's Gate, and the Sword Coast.

Baldur's Gate 3 will be revisiting much of the same locations and presenting the same enemies as the original game, namely the world of Avernus, The Flaming Fist, and the Mind Flayers.

While the story seems very much separate, there's still plenty of lore and world-building that new players to the franchise can learn right here, and take with them in their adventures in Baldur's Gate 3.
