Description Edit | History

UNRELEASED GAME – AVAILABLE

This game is still in active development and available to the public for purchase in it's unfinished state, either in Early-Alpha or Beta (or any status in between).

YOU ARE BURDENED WITH A GREAT POWER DEVOURING YOU FROM WITHIN. HOW FAR DOWN THE PATH OF DARKNESS WILL YOU LET IT TAKE YOU? THE FATE OF THE FORGOTTEN REALMS IS ON YOUR PARTY’S SHOULDERS. WILL YOU CARRY IT TO SALVATION, OR DESCEND WITH IT TO HELL?

From the creators of Divinity: Original Sin 2 begins the start of a next-generation RPG, set in the world of Dungeons and Dragons. Gather your party, and return to the Forgotten Realms in a tale of fellowship and betrayal, sacrifice and survival, and the lure of absolute power...

Though each of you differ in innumerable ways, one thing binds you all together: a parasite planted in your brains. With it comes mysterious abilities, but also the looming threat of gruesome transformation into a Mind Flayer. Resist, and turn darkness against itself. Or embrace corruption, and become ultimate evil.

Illithid power is available once a day and builds a relationship with your worm. The second character created is used for the worm in dream sequences.

More Information Edit | History

"I like it when my clients put up a fight... only to realize victory was never an option. Try to cure yourself. Shop around - beg, borrow and steal. Exhaust every possibility until none are left. That's when you'll come knocking on my door. Hope... such a tease." -Raphael

"Pray for the dead if you want, but they won't thank you for it. The dead are an ungrateful lot." -Astarion

"The mouse smiled brightly: it outfoxed the cat! Then down came the claw and that love, was that." -Raphael

Trivia:

  • Developer Larian looked at the most popular player choices in character creation and discovered that despite the choices available, players preferred the "Most Boring Guy Ever". Larian posted: "We thought our analytics system wasn't working! We checked. It is. Congratulations, you've basically made the default Vault Dweller" and "We are sorely disappointed. Go crazy.".
  • During character creation the player creates their main playable character and a secondary non-playable character meant to be what they find 'attractive'. This secondary character appears during dream sequences triggered by using worm powers, in which they attempt to seduce the player. The song "Down by the River" hints at demonic influence and plays during both the character creation and the dreams. The 'river' mentioned in the song likley refers to the River Styx which flows through the Lower Planes and wipes the memories of anyone who touches it.
  • Raphael's lullaby could allude to him being the fox (hidden in the word outFOXed), and the player's (mouse) only way of beating the cat (worm). Foxes also like to eat mice.

Classes

Classes for Baldur's Gate 3 are styles of play for each character of the game. All BG3 classes also have several Subclasses that players can select after gaining sufficient XP. Choosing a class determines your character's Features, which are the unique actions that a character can perform. Additionally, BG3 allows players to Multiclass: On each level up you can either select a new class or choose to level up an existing class. E.g a 5th level could be for example a multiclass 3rd level Wizard/2nd level Fighter or a pure 5th level Wizard. Certain Races may have better affinity to specific Classes and Subclasses.
