, and here are some details from that:
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.
Mysterious abilities are awakening inside you, drawn from a Mind Flayer parasite
planted in your brain. Resist, and turn darkness against itself. Or embrace
corruption, and become ultimate evil.
From the creators of Divinity: Original Sin 2 comes a next-generation RPG, set
in the world of Dungeons and Dragons.
Choose from a wide selection of D&D races and classes, or play as an origin
character with a hand-crafted background. Adventure, loot, battle and romance as
you journey through the Forgotten Realms and beyond. Play alone, and select your
companions carefully, or as a party of up to four in multiplayer.
An expansive original story
Abducted, infected, lost. You are turning into a monster, but as the corruption
inside you grows, so does your power. That power may help you to survive, but
there will be a price to pay, and more than any ability, the bonds of trust that
you build within your party could be your greatest strength. Caught in a
conflict between devils, deities, and sinister otherworldly forces, you will
determine the fate of the Forgotten Realms together.
Forged with the new Divinity 4.0 engine, Baldur’s Gate 3 gives you unprecedented
freedom to explore, experiment, and interact with a world that reacts to your
choices. A grand, cinematic narrative brings you closer to your characters than
ever before, as you venture through our biggest world yet.
No adventure will be the same
The Forgotten Realms are a vast, detailed and diverse world, and there are
secrets to be discovered all around you -- verticality is a vital part of
exploration. Sneak, dip, shove, climb, and jump as you journey from the depths
of the Underdark to the glittering rooftops of the Upper City. How you survive,
and the mark you leave on the world, is up to you.
Online multiplayer for up to four players allows you to combine your forces in
combat, and split your party to follow your own quests and agendas. Concoct the
perfect plan together… or introduce an element of chaos when your friends least
Origin Characters offer a hand-crafted experience, each with their own unique
traits, agenda, and outlook on the world. Their stories intersect with the
entire narrative, and your choices will determine whether those stories end in
redemption, salvation, domination, or many other outcomes.
Evolved turn-based combat, based on the D&D 5e ruleset. Team-based initiative,
advantage & disadvantage, and roll modifiers join combat cameras, expanded
environmental interactions, and a new fluidity in combat that rewards strategy
Define the future of the Forgotten Realms through your choices, and the roll of
the dice. No matter who you play, or what you roll, the world and its
inhabitants will react to your story.
Player-initiated turn-based mode allows you to pause the world around you at any
time even outside of combat. Whether you see an opportunity for a tactical
advantage before combat begins, want to pull off a heist with pin-point
precision, or need to escape a fiendish trap. Split your party, prepare
ambushes, sneak in the darkness -- create your own
