General New Baldur's Gate III Teaser Trailer

Larian Studios posted a teaser trailer for Baldur's Gate III on Twitter, showing off both apparent cutscene and gameplay footage.


The trailer ends with the statement "Join us on the road to Baldur's Gate Starting June 6" This date is the first date of the Guerrilla Collective Indie Game Showcase, taking place online from June 6-8. Larian Studios is a participant in the event and previously promised Baldur's Gate III news at the showcase. This statement lends further credence to industry speculation that the big announcement will be the date of early access, and it may hint that early access will start on June 6. But it looks like we still have another week before we know for sure.

It's interesting that the gameplay looks more akin to one of Larian Studio's Divinity Original Sin games rather then the typical top-down perspective of the original Baldur's Gate and most other CRPG's in the genre but that is to be expected I suppose. Until we get a full combat trailer or full gameplay trailer I suppose we won't know for sure.

Still the game looks to be worth keeping an eye on, even if just for game historical reasons, and I look forward to seeing if it can live up to it's legacy.

Not sure what you mean here. Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights, Fallout, Planescape, etc. were all isometric games just like the more modern Divinity, Pillars of Eternity, Torment, etc.

Title? I don't need no stinkin' title.
Looking forward to it. I bought DOS II quite a while back when it was on sale and just recently made time to play. Like the game, looking forward to what they can do with all they've learned and a bigger budget.

To me it looks a lot like the old school Baldur's Gates games to me updated with modern graphics.

That did not instill hype and/or excitement for me. The spell effects were horrendous and that statue fall was laughably (and cringey) bad. I get this is early stuff and will doubtlessly improve....but yeesh.

I'll credit them for showing something honest though.

I will probably have a look at it but I still think it's Divinity Original Sin 3 and not Baldur's Gate 3. I simply can't get used to 3D. I also did not enjoy the DOS stories, characters, world, etc. Hopefully I'll be positively surprised.

This definitely looks like Original Sin 3. But I loved Original Sin 1-2, with over 1,000 hours between the two of them.

Honestly my biggest concern is just keeping the turns quick. Things were pretty slow in the E3 footage, and these are action shots that don't show the length of time between turns.

looks epic! I bought divinity sin 2 just to curb my anticipation for it. Is the woman with wings a harpy or something else?
