Larian Shares The Very Serious Story Of How They Got The Baldur's Gate 3 Deal

Baldur’s Gate 3 is real, and Larian Studios, the developer behind the excellent Divinity: Original Sin 2, are making it. But how did they score the biggest win in all of role-playing games, one of Dungeons & Dragons’ most-beloved stories?

What did they do to sell D&D makers Wizards of the Coast on their Mind Flaying take? It happened, per Larian’s first of many planned community updates, like anything else in Dungeons & Dragons: With a solid set of armour, an iron flask and a wee bit of kidnapping. Check out their very charming and extremely goofy video for yourself.


    I seriously hope players put aside 20 odd years of baggage and judge the new game on its merits and how they think it should be. I hope the studio is brave enough to bring it into the future and not be too dragged down harping on the past. They have my complete faith.
