Welcome to the World of Baldur’s Gate 3: A Humorous RPG Adventure

Baldur’s Gate 3

Even though the team at Larian Studios humbly states that Baldur’s Gate 3 isn’t meant to “raise the bar” for other RPGs, let’s face it – this game is a big deal! With the original two games in the series considered as some of the best CRPGs ever made, and Larian’s amazing work on the Divinity: Original Sin series, Baldur’s Gate 3 is poised to make a significant impact. As the game’s 6-year long development cycle comes to an end and its release is just around the corner, the reception of Baldur’s Gate 3 might just shake things up for BioWare’s future releases. Will they rise to the challenge or fall flat on their face? The excitement is palpable!

But wait, who is BioWare? Well, they’re the masterminds behind the first two Baldur’s Gate games and one of the most influential Western RPG developers. These talented folks are responsible for not only the Baldur’s Gate franchise but also the legendary Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. If that’s not impressive enough, they’ve gone on to create fantastic series like Mass Effect and Dragon Age. Now, with the torch passed to Larian, the ball is in BioWare’s court for their upcoming releases. It’s their time to shine!

Baldur’s Gate 3 is not your typical modern RPG. Instead, Larian Studios brings a refreshing approach by going back to the roots of the genre. They’ve sparked debates about game length and cutscenes, reigniting discussions from a time when RPGs were less modernized. Set in the rich world of Dungeons and Dragons, Baldur’s Gate 3 promises to deliver a role-playing experience like no other. With Larian’s proven expertise from their Divinity games, expect deep character customization, the thrill of decision-making, and multiple outcomes for every situation. Get ready for a pure RPG experience that will leave you craving for more!

Now, how will Baldur’s Gate 3 influence BioWare’s other highly anticipated games? Dragon Age: Dreadwolf holds a mirror to BioWare’s past with the Baldur’s Gate series, and we can only hope that it stays true to its RPG roots. On the other hand, the Mass Effect series has gradually leaned towards being more action-packed. Enter Mass Effect 4, which is still in its early stages of development. Larian’s confident and traditional RPG approach in Baldur’s Gate 3 might just inspire BioWare to return to their RPG origins and deliver a Mass Effect game that will blow our minds!

So mark your calendars, because Baldur’s Gate 3 releases on August 3 for PC and September 6 for PS5. And hey, Xbox Series X/S users, don’t worry, a version for you is also in the works! Get ready to embark on an epic adventure filled with laughter, excitement, and unforgettable moments.
