It has been over 25 years since the release of the second entry of this iconic franchise, which is widely regarded as being among the very best role-playing games in the annals of gaming history.
Its name alone was enough to send anticipation soaring, but fresh information that has been provided by Larian Studios has only served to ratchet up the excitement even further.

Baldurs Gate 3 Gameplay
Larian Studios created and published Baldur’s Gate 3. Its 2020 release features a thrilling RPG experience with single-player and cooperative multiplayer modes. Players create one or more characters by selecting races, classes, ability scores and skills.
They can then assemble a party of computer-generated characters to explore the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) tale. Players can control their party in single-player mode and form a party online in multiplayer mode. Players can collaborate to achieve tasks and kill opponents, making the game more social.
Turn-based combat is one of Baldur’s Gate 3’s biggest changes. Divinity: Original Sin and Divinity: Original Sin II are similar, however this one uses D&D 5th Edition rules. Players must carefully plan their moves and use their talents and spells to overcome their opponents, adding complexity to the game.
D&D’s Forgotten Realms is the game’s setting. Players control a character infected with a “nautiloid,” a parasite that gives them superpowers but threatens to take over their thoughts. To find a cure, they must travel the world and overcome many hardships.

However, this is only the case when one is concentrating on the primary plot of the game.
