I wonder if Larian is going to do Real Time With Pause or their signature turn based stuff? I gotta imagine there will be riots on some forums if they don't include RTWP. Either way super pumped, loved the Illithids in the trailer!
Personally I'd rather it be true to DnD 5 than true to Infinity Engine games, as much as I like BG2, the combat system in Infinity engine games is not particularly good nor true to the ruleset for that matter (movement, cover etc.) and if Larian does spell elemental interactions, surfaces etc. then it has
to be turn based in combat.
But yeah, Baldurs Gate 3 is a must play for me, especially if it's from Larian, who despite what the naysayers in this forum claim has better writers than Obsidian or Bethesda could ever dream of.
Also get your lore right, that wasn't an Illithid, that was an Ulitharid
Ps.: The video showed how Mindflayers reproduce. Tadpol grows inside host into.. that.
