Larian promises Baldur’s Gate 3 date
Baldur’s Gate 3’s planned early access period won’t start this month after all, but Larian promises to announce launch date soon.
Larian will broadcast a live stream at 10:00am PST on August 18th: “We’ll be announcing the release date, as well as big news on the Panel From Hell alongside @geoffkeighley, @LarAtLarian and the Larian crew.”
Later access: The Panel From Hell will feature Geoff Keighley and Larian founder Swen Vincke along with members of the development team. Baldur’s Gate series takes place in the Forgotten Realms universe, which was started by BioWare in 1998, followed by a sequel in September 2000.
Date soon: Baldur’s Gate 3 was announced at PAX East 2020, is based on the fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons rules and features a turn-based combat similar to Larian’s own Divinity: Original Sin rather than the hybrid real-time system from the first two games.
