    Crazy to think that we are finally getting another one. BG2 is probably i my top 5 games ever, so i really hope Larian can do it justice. If Divinity: Original Sin 2 is anything to go by, it's in bloody good hands.

    Hopefully the pacing is better than other Larian games, I always find myself getting burned out by them.

    Small explanation of the trailer by Larian's founder

    If they can make it 50-60 hours long, or less even, rather than 75+ then that is absolutely fine with me.

    Last time I played Baldurs Gate was early 2000's, is this the follow up? Not sure if it was 1 or 2, its a lifetime ago.

    From what I read it's set in the same universe after the events of the second game but will be a completely different story.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 22,945 Mod ✭✭✭✭Kiith


    Yeah, set 100 years after the 1st and 2nd games from what i've heard. As for the pacing, i head the pacing wasn't great in the 3rd act of D:OS2, but was brilliant in the enhanced edition, so hopefully they learn from that.

    Gonna start a replay of the series this weekend. BG1 through to ToB, using the BG2 engine.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,403 ✭✭✭Icyseanfitz


    BG1 was the first real rpg that made fall in love with games, only companies i could see doing 3 justice is larian or obsidian. time to replay 1 and 2 i think....and get my ass handed to me

    Bg2 was just the best ever. I think i was looking at DOS before but never played it so must give it a go
    This is exciting

    I couldn't ever quite get into D:OS, but D:OS2 grabbed me immediately, and took almost 100 hours of my life that i would gladly give again. Absolutely fantastic game, and one of the best rpg's of all time for me.

    I've a lot of faith in Larian after that.

    Steam page is up as well.

    19 years since BG2... I have almost forgotten what the game was like. I just know that I played it for a LONG time and absolutely loved it. I am surprised that we are getting a BG3 but excited!

    Agreed. I've played DOS2 twice over now, 100 hours each time, and it's definitely one of the best RPG's ever.

    If they basically make DOS2 again in a Baldur's Gate universe then I'll be all over this.

    Ooooh man! Playing through Divinity 2 atm so this has me turbo excited


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,403 ✭✭✭Icyseanfitz


    I wonder will we ever get a Kotor 3 :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,511 ✭✭✭Glebee


    All other similar games fade in comparision to Baldurs Gate / Icewind Dale series of games.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,895 ✭✭✭Daith


    Really looking forward to this. The games, the second one especially, felt like you could "live in" them. So sprawling and full of content.

    Going to start Baldurs Gate tonight, it has been about 10 years since I last played it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,405 ✭✭✭Lone Stone


    i am kind of burned out on isometric rpg's, seems like a bit of a saturated niche the 2 years. I love bg im really hoping it will shake it up and go like 3rd person witcher style with the same rule set as the classics.

    I'm a bit tired of the "retro" style isometric RPGs as well, there has been loads of them recently and all seem to have the same combat and endless dialogues. I'd prefer something different for BG3, but I guess that is unlikely to happen.

    I already played BG1, Torment, BG2, Icewind Dale 15-20 years ago, I don't want the same games again.

    That's vaguely like saying I've played HL1 and 2 years ago. I don't want to see them go down the FPS route for 3.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,715 ✭✭✭✭Potential-Monke


    Never played one of these because I'm not a fan of the isometric style. Thought I read something somewhere that said this was going to be 3rd person, and piqued my interest. I take it there's no confirmation of what it will be?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,403 ✭✭✭Icyseanfitz


    Divinity original sin might look and feel like an iso rpg but its not really, id assume it will be a similar/same engine for bg3

    same like i literally bought every one of them that came out, some better than others just finished poe 2 dead fire last night. Great game's but the only one that stood out from the crowd was div 2. So yea i hope they do try take it to a 3rd person style game that would blow my mind.
