You can also expect a flurry of D&D games for the next while. On top of this year's BG3 and a Dark Alliance remake, Hasbro expects to release a game in the role-playing franchise every year until 2025

Keep em coming! Though early access on a story driven game... nah. Such a waste of the experience.

Hate to be negative Nancy but just because something is called BG3 it doesn't mean that it will bring back the good old times of 90s RPG. Case in point - Fallout 3.

For all we know this might be an action RPG based on D&D license.

No worries no offense taken... but

THIS
IS
LARIAN

not some shitty backwater studio from timbuktu trying to copy success formulas. This is a studio with actual talent and experience, and a genuine interest for deep RPGs. Think Black Isle v2.

These guys made Divinity OS/2 - most certainly not an action oriented steroid action game with 'some RPG elements'.

Might sound biased here, but this studio and this franchise is a match made in heaven. It is very much like Creative Assembly doing a Total War Warhammer. You just need this to happen, because you just know it's gonna work.

Larian which are the people who are making it, it should be a really good game. How ever they will have to stop with the AI BS that is done in Divinity Original Sin 2, although still was a kick ass game.

IF they can do that it be a totally awesome game. Which you would think being s D&D good to go.

O yeah their is no other game company i would trust over them.

Has for Hasbro, a game every year HAHAHAHA. Yeah they be crappy to alright ones and nothing like we really expect.

EDIT: So hasbro plan to make RPG games as bad as COD and the alike, yup don't trust that shit.

I never miss an opportunity to repost this, and can report that it all still works as described:


Edit: I should also note that GOG gifts you a copy of the original when you buy the enhanced version, you can download only the original.

A very nice alternative if you don't want or own the EE versions. I do have to say, having played BG1 and 2 in EE, they are in a very good place overall.

Also played NWN EE... and boy it still is clunky like nobodies' business. Good fun, but clunky and annoying to play.
