A peek at the 100-plus-hour adventure
[Update: The Baldur’s Gate 3 PAX East stream is about to start.]
Baldur’s Gate 3 has been riding high ever since that gnarly body-horror announcement trailer, but even with Larian Studios’ pedigree, a cinematic can only go so far. When’s the next reveal happening?
Larian has set the Baldur’s Gate 3 gameplay reveal for February 27, 2020, at 12:30 p.m. Creative director Swen Vincke is hosting an on-stage demo and Q&A at PAX East, both of which will be live-streamed, and the studio will run follow-up demos the rest of the weekend at booth #14309.
For now, here’s another checking-out-the-studio teaser – albeit with a dragon this time.
“We have grown our team to 350 people and have been working on new technology and pipelines to allow our team to create a truly next-generation RPG,” said Larian. “There will be more than 100+ hours of content, with all the depth you’d expect and many surprises along the way.”
Fans have a lot of reasons to be pumped for Baldur’s Gate 3 with Larian at the helm, but there are still so many unknowns about the game. Once we dig deep into the camera and combat system – two elements that’ll surely be a focal point on Feb. 27 – I think people will be able to breathe easy.
It’s kind of scary how much is riding on this project, but I’m confident it’ll turn out well.
