Larian Studios Released Browser-based Prologue of Baldur's Gate 3

To make entertain the players waiting for the August release of Baldur's Gate 3, Larian Studios has prepared an interesting browser-based game that combines elements of role-playing and community-based crime investigation.

Belgian studio Larian Studios has prepared an unusual campaign to promote the upcoming release of Baldur's Gate 3, scheduled for August 31 (on PC and PS5). Blood in Baldur's Gate is a browser-based RPG, in which players are tasked with identifying and capturing the perpetrator of a brutal murder. Interestingly, the project features an interesting multiplayer module.

Joint investigation

Story in Blood in Baldur's Gate is set 15 years before the events of the game. Panic breaks out in the title city due to a brutal murder committed in the docks.

Familiarizing themselves with the collected information and evidence, the player directs an investigation, choosing from the available options.

Interestingly, which way the action will go, is to be decided by the collective will of the majority of players, determined by a daily vote.

Those wishing to take part in the game can go to the official website. Importantly, however, voting is only possible after logging in to with a Larian account.

Although at the moment there is still very little content available in the game, the promise of daily updates or an inventory tab make us assume that the story will develop significantly over time.

The Blood in Baldur's Gate event and the accompanying game is scheduled to last for the next three weeks.
