The acclaimed Dungeons & Dragons was a gem of the past and had been left idle for over a decade. It was created by BioWare and received a lot of love immediately. Baldur’s Gate 3 is a sequel to the story and is already in an hour-long gameplay pre-alpha state. As can be confirmed by the demo given by Larian Studios, who has previously been involved in the Divinity: Original Sin series too. From the announcements, we know now that the early-access version of the game will be released for PCs in a couple of months as per their statement, and that has taken the fans on a wild ride.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is an RPG (Role Playing Game) and as you might know, these games that people have known and loved for so many years have been treated well in Larian’s attempt at continuing the story. After the handover to Larian Studios, there were speculations about how they would approach this project but now that the teasers have been released, fans seemed to like it.
Some Major Upgrades Over the Decades
Since the launch of Baldur’s Gate 2 or BG2 in short, it has been well over 18 years or so. It was released back in 2001. So, there have been serious upgrades that were befitting for the modern take in graphics, in terms of 3D environments, controls, motion capture, and many other areas. This is a modern game and will be among the top titles so the quality of life and tweaks in the game has to feel modern.
At the same time, this new video game is built on the top of existing tabletop rules and takes you back to the era of Dungeons and Dragons (D&D 5E). This was the time when miniatures and tactical movements were still in all force and reigned supreme. The PAX event teasers showcased some of the upgrades in graphics and character design, to begin with. It all started with a pre-rendered movie for all good intentions.
Visual Storytelling on Charge
The visual storytelling in Baldur’s Gate 3 can be received immediately from the footage that goes like this an evil force inflicts creepy eyeball-sucking worms onto a series of heroes to seize a town named Nautiloid. The next thing you know our heroes are aboard fire-breathing dragons chasing off the evil force and taking the battle into icy tundra and some very realistic environments. The above is just a glimpse of some of the stuff this RPG has to offer and that has taken all the fans to the next level. They are eagerly waiting for the early-access to launch and get a hands-on BG2.
Baldur’s Gate Series: Waiting
The series has always been a video game franchise and feels more like them rather than RPGs like Elder Scrolls or Final Fantasy. The character movements in Baldur’s Gate 3 are more like World of Warcraft. The game’s cast of original stories and characters seems to revolve around the above storyline and Larian Studios is convinced it is done well.
