Baldur’s Gate 3 is getting a tabletop prequel in September

‘The next chapter in the Baldur’s Gate saga’

So Google got to steal that massive Baldur’s Gate III reveal away from E3 last week. Rad for them right? Well it’s also on PC, not just Stadia, so don’t get too upset.

Developer Larian Studios took to the stage at the PC Gaming Show to muse on it a bit, and while we didn’t get any actual Baldur’s Gate III video game news, we got Baldur’s Gate III news nontheless. Wait, what?

Yep, the very Dungeons & Dragons-centric series is going back to its roots, as there will be a tabletop prequel released later this year in September that leads into the game. It’s set 100 years after Baldur’s Gate II, and it’ll have a full level 1-13 campaign.

Baldur’s Gate III is confirmed for both PC and Google’s Stadia platform. As Larian said on stage today, “it’ll be ready when it’s ready.” Nope! No secret window.
