Baldur’s Gate 3 by Larian Studios – August
Baldur’s Gate 3 is the successor to one of the best RPG series Baldur’s Gate. Larian Studios is adapting Dungeons & Dragons tabletop rules for the next RPG and it sounds like they’ve taken a few creative liberties to translate the D&D experience to PC much as they did with Divinity: Original Sin 2. True to the series, it’s an RPG in which you control a party of heroes with their own backgrounds and motivations. Like Original Sin 2, you’ll be able to pick an origin character, which will have unique backgrounds and special hooks, as well as making one from scratch. This time origin characters are also tied to a class. The game is expected to launch in early access this August, but no other specifics have been announced on the date.
