Baldur's Gate 3 makes its big appearance tonight. At PAX East in Boston, developer Larian w ants to present the game in action for the first time. But apparently the first screenshots sent to the press have already been leaked. This shows the first details that will cause discussions in the community. We now know what the combat system looks like:
What can be seen on the leaked screenshots
Since the published pictures are not an official reveal on the part of Larian and GameStar basically adheres to agreed embargoes, we are unfortunately unable to show you the leaked pictures.
So much can be said: Baldur's Gate 3 will be visually based on Divinity: Original Sin 2 and is probably based on the same engine.
- Cinematic dialogues: The pictures show both close-ups from conversations and first scenes from various combat situations. The conversations are presented much more cinematically than in Original Sin 2 and the other Larian games. We can already see close-ups of the faces of our conversation partners on the screenshots.
- Turn-based battles: The battles, in turn, are visually reminiscent of the original Sin series. The clashes seem to be turn-based here too, which we can see from the initiative bar and from the fact that significantly less action is visible on the screen than would normally be the case in real-time battles.
The pictures were originally published by the French online magazine Jeuxactu a little too early. In the meantime, the screenshots from their website have disappeared again. A few brisk users have published them on other platforms.
The pictures are not all screenshots that Larian wants to publish and tonight there should also be a gameplay reveal. So have a look here at GameStar.de, we will provide you with all the information you need to know about Baldur's Gate 3 on time, officially, comprehensively and, above all, in the usual GameStar quality.
