Following Baldur's Gate, Tales of the Sword Coast, Siege of Dragonspear, Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal, but also the tabletop adventures Murder in Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus, the city of Baldur's Gate will be a main setting for Baldur's Gate III, roughly a hundred years after the events from the first two games.[3][1][4][5][6]

Baldur's Gate III will not be a continuation of the canceled Baldur's Gate III: The Black Hound or a direct sequel to the former games of the series, but previous events will be mentioned.[5][8][6]


As the predecessors, Baldur's Gate III will feature single- and multi-player modes. It is in development for Google Stadia and Microsoft Windows. Being based on the 5e Dungeons & Dragons rule set will be one large change for players that are familiar with the series, as well as visuals that by far surpass what the Enhanced Editions did to the original games.[1][9][6]
