Baldur’s Gate 3 will let your co-op partners and Twitch chat vote on dialogue choices

I'm fully spoiled for RPGs at the moment, but that sure won't stop me greedily gobbling up details about Baldur's Gate 3 whenever Larian is ready to sprinkle them out. The more I see, the more I hope it will have the intimate, party-focused storytelling that made one of my best pals fall in love with the Dragon Age series. Which is why I'm oh…

Baldur's Gate 3 will probably be here next month, and it's still unclear where it will land on the critical issue of a level cap.Developers Larian previously stated in a Reddit AMA that their upcoming sequel will cover levels one to ten, but in our recent interview, lead systems designer Nick Pechenin said that this isn't certain, as they're still weighing it up.

Watch out! You can die in the first 15 seconds of Baldur’s Gate 3

In Baldur's Gate 3, you'll be able to play as an almost-vampire. His name is Astarion, and he's technically a vampire spawn rather than a fully-fledged blood sucker, but like vampires across all sorts of fantasy media, he can't go into places without being specifically invited and, more importantly, he can't cross running water. Unfortunately for Astarion, there just so happens to be a large…

In case there was any doubt, Baldur’s Gate 3’s new sizzle reel confirms rooms full of fire

Maybe it was the dragons that clued you in. There sure was a lot of fire breathing in that opening cinematic Larian Studios showed off for Baldur's Gate 3. Or maybe you've played Larian's last big RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2 in which every single fight has, in my personal experience, a 100% chance to turn into a giant inferno. Larian posted a short and…

Larian Studios, ZA/UM, and lots of other indie developers are having their own showcase in June

I was just a tad sad when E3 organisers announced that they wouldn't be doing their own big digital event after cancelling the physical conference amid the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. Not to worry though, we lose one E3 and get like, five to replace it apparently. A bunch of indie developers and publishers have all squaded up to do their own thing which they're calling…

Yes, Baldur’s Gate 3 will build on the series’ existing story, say Larian

Baldur's Gate 3 is well out of the bag now and despite the lengthy gameplay reveal that Larian hosted at PAX East last month I have oh so many questions. So do you lot, it seems. Larian hosted an AMA yesterday to answer them all and though there were a few things they declined to answer, we've mostly rolled well on our Persuasion checks and come…

RPS asks: turn-based or real-time with pause combat?

Now that we've gotten a proper look at Baldur's Gate 3, the ol' war machines are firing up. Baldur's Gate games from years of yore featured the combat shared by other Infinity Engine games—real time action with the ability to pause and dictate to your party. Baldur's Gate 3, developed by those Larian folks of Divinity: Original Sin 2 fame, will have turn-based combat similar…

Baldur’s Gate 3 will let you toss your boots, barrels, even your buddies

At last we've gotten our first look at Baldur's Gate 3 and I—liker of both Baldur's Gate and Divinity: Original Sin 2—am feeling quite swell about what we've seen, but RPS have even more interview goodies yet. In the gameplay reveal this week, Larian CEO Swen Vincke takes off his character's boots and throws them at an enemy as a last-ditch escape manoeuvre. During an…

We won't be waiting too much longer to get our hands on Baldur's Gate 3, as it's making its way to Steam Early access later this year.

Baldur’s Gate 3 may be out this year if you believe this goof-up by Google

Evidence is mounting for a Baldur's Gate 3 release date getting announced before the month is out. Better yet, that drop date (if we do in fact get one) could be before 2020 ends. Larian have already teased, well, something happening in February. Larian's CEO Swen Vincke's been doing the vaguetweeting thing. Now, Google have accidentally slipped up, mentioning Baldur's Gate 3 on a list…

Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition Out In November

It looks like Baldur's Gate II's spam filter has let through an enhancement e-mail. You know the kind I'm talking about. In search of an ego boost, though I know plenty of people who like the venerable organ just the way it is, it has succumbed to the cheap thrills offered within, and ordered a course of treatment: "Why settle for less when we can…

Beamdog Hoping For Baldur’s Gate III Despite ‘Legal Hell’

For a while there, it looked as though Baldur's Gate had finally emerged from the dank dungeons of obscurity, prepared to crush modern glitz-and-glamour RPGs under a mountain of depth and 20-sided dice. But then things happened. Law things. Now Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is stuck in neutral - with Beamdog unable to continue fixing some rather worrisome launch issues - and Baldur's Gate II:…
