Baldur's Gate 3 DLC Not Off the Table, Larian Explains How They'd Approach It

Larian doesn't completely rule out a Baldur's Gate 3 DLC, and even explains how it can feature a new protagonist, antagonist and more.

Have not even started the main campaign...work has me weighed down.

anast262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

I hear you. I'm not that far into it either, but the game is good and I would be all over a DLC.

anast262d ago

I would preorder it right now if I could.

Fix all the ridiculous bugs and performance issues before diverting your attention to more content!!! Larian should be ashamed of themselves for releasing the game in its current state. Like CDPR (but maybe not to the same extent), they're all about the quick cash now; no fucking ethics to release a complete refined product. FFS---how were these issues not addressed in Early Access? My gf and I lose control of our character actions at some point every time we play! And then there's the sound cutting out. Basic fundamental control and engine operation. Game has a great deal of promise, but its review scores should have been substantially docked for the bugfest! It's an 85/100 at best in its current state.

Hmmm in my first playthrough as Dark Urge I got barely any bugs. Maybe one or two in act 3. But then again I might have shortened some storylines by killing most people.
In my second playthrough I had one soundbug in act 1 so far, where the narrator sound would not play anymore, which got solved after restart. So personally I did not really encounter anything that would warrant a comparison to cyberpunk 2077 at launch.
Maybe there are more bugs when you play in co-op?

“ Loved DOS and DOS2, and was super excited about BG3 until I found out there won't be a physical disc release on PS5. I won't be buying it now. What a shame.”

This aged well mate 😂

QuantumMechanic261d ago (Edited 261d ago )

I wondered who would catch that, LOL! Truth be told though: it was my gal who bought it because she's huge into traditional D&D and isn't as opposed to a digital/subscription lifestyle as me. I will still only buy a future physical release (Japanese or otherwise).

anast261d ago (Edited 261d ago )

The game ruined date night. It should get a 50/100 just for that or even less. I gave you an upvote.

Baldur's Gate 3's Side Quest Design is its Secret Weapon

With a game like Baldur's Gate 3, a number of factors make it successful—but perhaps none are as powerful as its side quest design.

Article makes a great point and I agree with it but is spoiler heavy. It should be marked. If you haven’t played through the game be warned as it even spoils parts of act 3.

Dirty_Lemons3d ago

Thanks for this dude, I am very interested in playing when I have time and am trying to avoid spoilers.

This game rocks, everything is quality, and I love the cutscenes, which remind me of Dragon Age Origin.

Baldur's Gate 3 PS5 Physical Deluxe Editions Delayed Due to Production Issues

While we were so hoping to not have to update owners of the console physical Deluxe Edition with any further news of delay, we’ve now run into more production issues which means that players who pre-ordered their PS5 North America copy that was expected to ship later this month, will now have to wait until July before they can get their hands on them.

Got that email like 2 weeks ago. Tbh I'm not tripping. I understand sht happens. I'm just glad they changed their minds on the physical release

Popsicle5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

I with you. I got the email is well. Happy to eventually own a physical copy and glad it’s not digital only.

Baldurs Gate 3 was great, but I dont think it is as crazy as people make it out to be. I actually think Starfield is closer to being a crazy insane once in a lifetime game, but Im ready for the flak Im about to get.

AndrewM5d ago

If you think that then you either A never played Bg3 or B never watched anyone else play it, or C you don't know anything about the game, or D you played it and have no idea of the marvel it is in every single aspect of game design. It doesn't matter what game you compare it to, it doesn't hold a candle. Let alone starfield.

Armaggedon4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

A. Ive played it thrice
B. Played with others, so there are moments of watching
C. Know more than I would care to about the game
D.
Thats quite bold, seeing as there are an inumerable amount of games for it to contend with. I also know plenty of people with their own gripes with the game.

As someone that creates things, and has actively sought to gather intel and understanding, I would say Baldurs Gates very nature makes it so it would have a hard time sitting upon the lofty throne you have given it. Similar to a Bethesda game, it is a game with a very large number of permutations and variables to consider, despite being smaller in scale by direct comparison.

Exemplary mastery of design philosophy is more certain to appear in a game that is for confined. One of the reasons I see Starfield the way I do is simply Bethesedas approach of breaking the rules. Anyone should hopefully know that you just dont try to fit a Bethesda game into a space game, but they found a way to pull it off. Do to the nature of large scale open world games, whether it is efficient or not depends on the angle one is looking at.

Many people would tell me immediately that loading screens and empty planets prove that they failed to pull it off. If you play Starfield like a conventional game yes

Part 2:
Many people would tell me immediately that loading screens and empty planets prove that they failed to pull it off. If you play Starfield like a conventional game yes, it will seem disjointed and lazy; however, to those who realize what Bethesda were going for, you will see that the game is severely underestimated. The idea of God is hated and loved by many, and there is much controversy. Starfield is closer to that idea than people even notice.
