"We are excited to announce the eagerly anticipated gameplay reveal of Baldur’s Gate 3. Our Creative Director Swen Vincke will be playing live on stage with Jesse Cox, revealing more about the story, mechanics, and the answers to much asked questions. With seating for 1000 people, don’t worry if you can’t make it to the live show, it’ll also be streamed on YouTube. For those at PAX, there will also be a short, live Q&A where your questions can be asked and answered.

We will also be present in the expo hall of PAX East, with an all-new booth dedicated to Baldur’s Gate 3. At the booth, our team will be serving up live gameplay presentations for the entire weekend, starting after the live show concludes.

Baldur’s Gate 3 was announced back at E3 last year, and since then we’ve have been continuing to grow to 350 people (including outsourcers), and working on new technology and pipelines that allow the team to create a truly next-generation RPG, spanning 100+ hours of content, with all the depth you’d expect, and many surprises along the way that even fans of critically acclaimed Divinity Original Sin 2 won’t expect.

Tune in on February 27 at 1530ET to discover why we've been quiet over the past few months, and which direction the studio is heading."

So, this is an announcement of an announcement trailer for a preview of the game.

When did Baldur's Gate turn into Star Wars?
It seems like its more of a publicity event than just a trailer. If it was just a trailer they could have just released it on Youtube. Instead they're hosting a public event that they want people to attend. And well, if you want people to come to your events you generally have to let them know it's happening.

It's almost as if they want to create buzz for their game or otherwise increase interest in a thing they are trying to sell. /s

I am excited. Larian makes great RPGs and Baldurs Gate are the best of the best.

Unless they can make a D&D movie as good or better than Willow there is no point trying. :p;)
I certainly hope they can make one that is better. Not that Willow is bad, I quite like it, but I feel a D&D movie could be so much more. Of course, so could so many movies that simply don't deliver on good ideas / material. I guess it is not just D&D movies that are hard to make, but movies in general.

BTW that yet they are building for it looks amazing, it most have cost them a fortune. I also know Journalists are doing interviews with Larian now, but they likely won't be released until after the announcement.

So I'm really looking forward to both the 21st (WotC/Hasbro share their plans for more computer games, likely some new announcements), and the 27th (BG3 live stream from pax including game play and Q&A, a new episode of ST: Picard and Season 2 of Altered Carbon).

I am pretty sure the cinematic trailers and story sequences are out sourced to companies that specialize in that, not made by the game team.
I realize that. To clarify, I wasn't suggesting the people who made this game should make a D&D movie, I was suggesting WotC / Hasbro needs to get moving on a quality D&D movie.

I would like to reiterate my comparison to Star Wars. This is big-budget stuff, at least by D&D game standards.

Even if the game turns out a failure, it will be a gorgeous failure. And if it's a success, it will be epic.
Star Wars sucks, if you want to compare it to Sci-Fi franchises Star Trek, Stargate, Andromeda, Altered Carbon, Galaxy Quest, the Orville, are all better then Star Wars by far. Except Baby Yoda who is too good for Star Wars.
