Baldur’s Gate 3 gets official release date and new trailer
We finally get to return to the Forgotten Realms in August.
Fans of Dungeons & Dragons have been waiting for Baldur’s Gate 3 for more than 20 years, but the wait is almost over.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is a DnD adventure set in the famed Forgotten Realms. It follows the beloved stories of Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2. Those games came out decades ago and became instant classics for fantasy fans.
Baldur’s Gate 3 has seen its fair share of obstacles in its development. The original games featured more real-time combat. You could pause and choose each character’s next move before letting it play out.
However, Larian scrapped that system for this one and replaced it with true, turn-based combat. That led to some hitches in development, pushing back the release of the game.
A small portion of the game has been available on Steam since 2020 for early-access users. But that version is severely limited and barely scratched the itch of fans who can’t wait to play the game.
As a big fan of DnD, as well as the Divinity: Original Sin series, Baldur’s Gate 3 has been on my radar for a long time now.
I can’t wait to see what kind of spin Larian put on fifth-edition Dungeons & Dragons to keep players interested in Baldur’s Gate 3. And the wait is finally almost over.
