Baldur's Gate 3

A Baldur's Gate 3 player has discovered hidden mini-quests you can only get by leaving the most important items in the game in an exploding building or at the bottom of the oceanJul 20, 2024 - PC GamerBaldur's Gate 3 was our 2023 Game of the Year and highest-scoring review in over a decade and a half for a whole host of reasons, but its open-ended player freedom and attending reactivity to all of our potential choices is certainly up there. A year out from release, Proxy Gate Tactician on YouTube has uncovered a particularly absurd edge case reaction involving the Netherstones and late-game Iron Throne and Steel Watch Foundry dungeons...

The studio is also now taking applications for a closed beta test for the patch, which is set to go live—the beta test, that is, not the patch—on July 22...

There's a good reason for that though - patch 7 is a beast. We already knew that new evil endings and official mod support would be arriving, but now Larian has revealed some early patch notes for this colossal BG3 update, which include a massive bug fixing spree that affects all seven of the game's origin characters, improvements to split-screen, and much more.

I think this ratio captures how BG3 updates at large walk the line between dealing with stuff like progression blockers, and sating the inexhaustible horniness of the fanbase. There's more to patch 7 than glitch-hunting and snogs, however. Due in September, it introduces dynamic splitscreen functionality, expansions for Honour mode, modding tools, new endings for evil playthroughs, and a brace of tweaks for Origin characters. Read more Baldur's Gate 3 Patch 7's closed beta sign ups are now open, as Larian provides more cool details about what it includesJul 16, 2024 - VG247We've just gotten a fresh update from Larian on Baldur's Gate 3's next big update, Patch 7, which is set to arrive in September. It seems like things are still very much on track for then, with the developer having teased a bunch more stuff that it'll include or facilitate, as well as announcing that PC players can now register for a chance to playtest it via a closed beta. Thanks to previous community updates, we already know that the patch is set to bring with it a bunch of extra evil endings and the official modding tools folks have been waiting for. If you think that means Larian's run out of stuff to talk about and tease in Community Update 28, however, you're very wrong. Let's start with the thing you can do right now, eh? Read more Community Update #28 Closed BetaJul 16, 2024 - Community AnnouncementsAh, the summer. Outside the temperature is rising, the chemical aroma of sunscreen is inescapable, and your dad is on his third day wearing the same sweat-stained tank top. What better time than now to retreat indoors and catch up on the latest updates arriving in Baldur’s Gate 3? Coming to you this September, Patch 7 rolls out the perfect escape with split screen updates, brand new cinematics for evil endings, plenty of bug fixes, plus our official modding toolkit which we talked more about in our last Community Update! Let’s take a look! And as always, beware - spoilers lay ahead. Split Screen Updates {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/35190511/5d64ad13ae9361081ebedcab9b08db218c6c21e8.gif Dynamic split screen mode is incoming! With our next update, friends will no longer be eternally confined to their side of the screen - because the power of friendship transcends all obstacles, including screen partitions. When playing in co-op, you’ll now have the option to have split screens merge into a single screen when you near one another. You can access this directly from the HUD and within the game settings, both in and out of combat. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/35190511/aac6d8f4ee662559bc90aff6321642e83470db14.gif Honour Mode Improvements We’re continuing to make improvements to combat in Honour Mode too. With Patch 7, even more creatures have been bestowed additional Legendary Actions, including the bulette, everyone’s favourite neighbourhood surgeon, Malus Thorm, and githyanki Ch'r'ai Tska'an, Ch'r'ai Har'rak, and Ptaris. Dror Ragzlin will now also be able to use a new spell called Arachnid Compulsion to rally the spiders that reside in the nearby pit to fight the real enemy - you. Baldur’s Gate 3 Modding Toolkit With this update also comes our official modding toolkit! Come September, you'll be able to load up your game with a range of new game mods, and even try your hand at making some yourself. We recommend giving our Modding FAQ a look for more information on what modding support means for Baldur’s Gate 3.

Много слов уже было сказано о создании игры, однако на этот раз Винке раскрыл любопытную деталь, которую ранее не озвучивал . 'We can't stay here': Larian CEO opens up about relocating Russian developers otherwise, 'all of my team was going to go to war'Jul 15, 2024 - PC GamerSwen Vincke, the CEO of Larian Studios, has recently opened up about Baldur's Gate 3's development, giving fans an insight into what it was like in the years running up to the successful launch and also what the aftermath has been like, even saying that all the accolades became too much to handle towards the end...

UK political memes look set to inflitrate the Fallout universe via Fallout 4 mod Fallout: London. Having already confirmed some pretty huge names voice acting-wise, the mod's Project Lead now looks to be suggesting a former MP known for yelling things is also on that list. Back in February, we learned that the mod's cast includes Neil Newbon - the voice of Baldur's Gate 3's Astarion - and A Plague Tale: Requiem’s Anna Demetriou, with their names slotting in alongside the likes of the already announced Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker. Yes, that's the sixth and seventh doctors from Doctor Who. Now, over on the mod's Discord server, project lead Dean 'Prilladog' Carter looks to have revealed perhaps the weirdest addition to a mod's cast in the history of, well, modding via a "Little Amusing Update". Read more "Пробить стеклянный потолок": Larian Studios хотела сделать игру по лицензии Fallout или UltimaJul 14, 2024 - Gamemag.ruВ индустрии видеоигр существовало три лицензии, которые могли бы послужить основной для новой игры от Larian. Об этом рассказал глава бельгийской студии Свен Винке в интервью журналу Edge. Larian explains how that particular Baldur's Gate 3 scene involving quite a raunchy bear came to beJul 14, 2024 - VG247Baldur's Gate 3 developer Larian has shared the origins of that viral bear sex scene that helped put the already popular RPG on everyone's radar. I'll admit, while I had been aware of Baldur's Gate 3 for a good while, for the most part I wasn't all that interested in it. Then, all of a sudden, I see people talking about this game where you can have sex with one of the game's characters while they're transformed into a bear. That particular moment really helped propel Baldur's Gate 3 to its monumental success (though I imagine it still would have done well without it), and really showed how wild and weird things can get. Now, while at Brighton's Develop conference earlier this week speaking to Eurogamer, former Larian writer Baudelaire Welch has shared just how that scene came to be, and how it wasn't originally going to be that big of a thing. When Welch joined Larian in 2020, partway through development, a lot of work had already been done, including for companion romances, but certain characters like Halsin weren't romanceable just yet. "I don't think there were specific plans for him to be a love interest," Welch explained. At the time, the community surrounding the game evidently wanted "daddy Halsin," which Welch knew because they were included in that community. Larian took note of that, and decided to explore what that looked like. Read more Larian CEO Swen Vincke says there were only two other RPG series he was interested in working on if he couldn't get Baldur's Gate: Fallout and UltimaJul 12, 2024 - PC GamerIt's hard to overstate how big Baldur's Gate 3 is. It's a massive sales hit, it claimed all the awards, and it turned Larian, already a well-respected studio thanks to its outstanding Divinity: Original Sin games, into RPG royalty. I think it's fair to say that nobody could have predicted this, but in the latest issue of Edge (via GamesRadar), Larian CEO Swen Vincke said he had big ambitions for the studio, and that there were only three games he felt could make it happen...
