Baldur’s Gate III video game in development

Bought Tyranny over the week on the recommendation. Just finished up Act II. Loving it! Initially my idea was Loyal McLoyalton, just being a good judge and peacekeeper. The Game wasn't too cooperative on that front. :P You absolutely cannot please everyone, and even early on in Act I you start having to make choices on whom you are going to make friends with, which will inherently make you enemies with other people. Pretty awesome. I can't just Charisma my way through making everyone happy with me.

Also, very unique World, politics, and metamagic underpinnings. Even being moderately genre-savvy, there were plenty of surprises and lots of fun. Great game!

It looks like the Early Access program might kick off later this month. There's a livestream on Aug 18 that will announce the date.

Early Access is basically pre-ordering/beta combined (you get full access to the first part of the game and the full game will be unlocked/opened on official launch date).

Glad that people are enjoying Tyranny after my recommendation. :)

I will wait until Baldur's Gate 3 is actually finished and therefore *worth* the asking price. But the thumbnails I've been seeing in the Youtube are looking very promising. I'm impressed that Larian is dedicated to letting the player see scenes up close and personal, in addition to fully voiced. I think that's very promising. If I'm not a fan of the mechanics, I can forgive them if the story is really good.

And even then, there's still Cyberpunk...
