Baldur’s Gate 3 Has A Release Date Maybe

Who needs certainty 

Professionalism be damned, I’m incredibly excited to see Baldur’s Gate 3 out in the wild, but nowhere near as excited as I am to actually get my hands on it. We’ve all seen footage of it by now, but there’ll be even more to see at the D&D live event. If you’ve not heard anything about this game yet, please, sit back, relax, and let me preach to you about the horrible eye tadpoles that want to be inside your brain.

The beginning of the story has been shown off already, and features whoever you decide to play as having a creepy Mindflayer baby crawl its way inside of your skull via your eye. That happens in first-person and is possibly one of the worst things I’ve ever watched in a video game. After that, your aim is, unsurprisingly, to get said evil baby out of your brain and into, I assume, the bin. I’m normally all for saving little animals where possible, but if it’s an animal that wants to go inside of my and make me vomit up tentacles at some point, then I guess that’s where I draw the line.

Of course, the best part of the third community update is that we now know that the game is hitting Early Access in August, maybe. Now, the maybe is relevant, because the world is in constant chaos, and while we all need Baldur’s Gate 3, the staff at Larian Studios already work very hard and deserve to not overdo it too. Anyway, if everyone could send their collective energy to the people at Larian that would be great, I’d like to write about this again in a couple of months.
