Larian Studios has released a brand-new cinematic trailer and accompanying screenshots for the highly anticipated Baldur's Gate III. In this follow-up to the classic CRPGs of yore, players will be able to explore the famous Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms campaign setting, either with a custom character of their own or an "origin character" with a pre-written backstory.
The game is being billed as the "biggest adventure" Larian has worked on, offering unprecedented freedom of choice to those brave souls who are willing to venture forth. Baldur's Gate III can be played as a solo adventure, or with a party of up to four via online multiplayer. The game's combat system is based on the D&D 5E ruleset, with a player-initiated turn-based option that allows the user to pause the action at any point to get a better sense of their surroundings. It certainly all sounds very impressive!
