E3 2019: Baldur’s Gate 3 finally confirmed, gets gross announce trailer

It’s finally time to come home to Baldur’s Gate. After two decades and a pair of high quality remasters by Beamdog Software, a new entry in the venerable¬†Dungeons & Dragons CRPG series has been announced.

Rumblings about the announce of Baldur’s Gate 3 began earlier in the week when Divinity: Original Sin developer posted a teaser of a stylised, golden “III” on their Twitter account and website. Digging into the site’s source code revealed a connection to Baldur’s Gate, and the rumour mill exploded.

Today, Larian came clean. Not only is Baldur’s Gate 3 real, there’s an announce teaser. Fair warning if you’re about to watch over breakfast: it centres on mindflayers and full blown body horror.

While the teaser is pre-rendered and offers no gameplay, hopefully Larian have something to show during E3 proper. The big show kicks off next week.
