2 min read

Larian Studios: Baldur’s Gate 3’s Patch 5 Content to Be Unveiled During the Panel From Hell 3, an Interactive Live Event at Belgium’s Gravensteen Castle on July 8

The inaugural ‘LarPG’ allows Twitch viewers to vote in a live-action interactive adventure that covers the basis of Patch 5’s gameplay changes

Baldur’s Gate 3’s Patch 5 is right around the corner, and so too is the third Panel From Hell. Since Feburary’s release of Patch 4, we’ve been working on implementing much of the player feedback gathered since the launch of early access in October 2020.

News of what those changes are will be explored in the Panel From Hell 3, host of our first ‘LarPG’ (Larian-LARP-ARG, get it?). We’re calling it “Twitch Plays: A Most Noble Sacrifice,” and it stars a cast of real actors alongside fake — but still surprisingly good — actors (the developers working on Baldur’s Gate 3).

Take the reins as you direct our adventuring party through brain-teasing puzzles and lethal traps as they quest to retrieve an object of incredible value. Call the shots, and take the adventure home with you in our first ‘LarPG.’ We’re coming to you live from Gravensteen castle… but we can’t guarantee everyone will leave. That’s up to you…

See you on Larian Studios’ Twitch channel on July 8, 11 a.m. PT!
