The Stadia Connect press conference showed off over 30 games for the the streaming platform, with Baldur’s Gate 3 joining Ghost Recon Breakpoint and several indie titles. Larian has been teasing the game for a while but now we’ve finally had it officially confirmed.

There’s no gameplay available yet, but we got a nice look at a soldier losing his mind in the ruins of what appears to be the city of Baldur’s Gate, slowly transforming into what looks like a mindflayer. This falls in line with the tentacle theme shown in the previous teaser for the announcement. Here’s the official blurb:

“Developed by the creators of Divinity: Original Sin 2, Baldur's Gate III is the official next adventure in the venerable Baldur's Gate series. The teaser trailer shows a return of a malevolent presence to Baldur's Gate, intent on devouring it from the inside out, corrupting everything that remains in the Forgotten Realms. The fate of the Forgotten Realms lies in your hands.”

The official website for Baldur’s Gate 3 is live, but for now there’s little more information beyond the trailer shown during the press conference. Here’s hoping we get a better look next week during E3. We don’t know what platforms other than Stadia Baldur’s Gate 3 will be available on, but either way as gamers who grew up on the original series, we can’t wait to learn more!
