Baldur's Gate 3, maybe try and sing to them?

Larian Studios have dropped another trailer for the upcoming, highly anticipated instalment in the Baldur's Gate saga and although brief, it's well worth seeing.

As we said, Baldur's Gate 3's new trailer is more along the lines of a teaser as it doesn't reveal much, but being long-time fans of the franchise, it will do for now. 

Larian are promising much more to come throughout June, starting with the Guerilla Collective showcase on June 6, 2020. It kicks off at 12pm PT / 3pm ET / 7pm GMT, when we're hoping to see some more gameplay and storyline details, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. 

It's been a while since the last Baldur's Gate, 20 years in fact, just in case you're not feeling old already. Okay, there's been the enhanced edition that launched in 2013, but D&D fans shouldn't have too much trouble catching up. 

Larian promised that Baldur's Gate 3 touches on its predecessors "in meaningful ways" and that there will be more than a few familiar faces, so you may want to go and make sure your Baldur's Gate isn't squeaky ahead of the new instalment. 

In their Reddit AMA, Larian discussed the link between the old games and said, "We really don't want to spoil anything but we wouldn’t call it Baldur's Gate 3 if there wouldn't be a link. Let me just say that we touch upon the story of BG 1 & 2 in meaningful ways, there are returning characters and what happened in BG 1/2/tob leads to what happens into BG3."

Considering the time that's passed and the fact that Baldur's Gate 3 uses the 5e Edition D&D Ruleset, don't expect a direct and mechanically identical sequel, even if Larian insists they've done everything to ensure the game feels like Baldur's Gate should.
