Baldur's Gate 3 plotline revealed at PAX

Post by Big Mac »

Swen Vincke, Creative Director of Larian Studios took part in a live stream from PAX East, called Baldur's Gate 3: Worldwide Reveal:

The two previous trailer videos: the original teaser trailer and the opening cinematic, with the nautiloid now make sense.

The main theme of Baldur's Gate 3 is that you - the player - have been kidnapped by an illithid and then implanted with an illithid tadpole.

The three dragon-riding githyankiki have attacked the illithid's nautiloid ship, killing the illithid and causing the ship to crash and break up.

Your characters have survived this, but you are now in the middle of nowhere and have to find a healer before the tadpole inside your head completes the process of ceremorphosis.

So that first trailer is what will happen if you take too long.

Aside from that, the environment looks pretty cool and the five characters with storylines, that Larian have put into the game look like they could be raided and turned into tabletop NPCs. (Larian also allow people to create their own characters, which explains why the opening cinematic doesn't show the second character. It can be whatever you pick as your character.)
