The creator of Baldur’s Gate 3 always wanted to tell the story of a serial killer

Will, Gale and Shadouhart can have their own secrets, but the last "The origin of the character" takes first place – and this is a story that its creator has long wanted to tell.

While the other main characters of Baldur’s Gate 3 have predetermined appearance, classes and characters, The Dark Urge differs from them. It doesn’t matter who you will play – a gnome magician or a dragon -rosary barbarian, their story will remain unchanged – and this is a very terrible story. In the past, Dark Urge hides a serial killer, but you do not remember him. All you know is that you have been preserved in your craving for murders, and you will have to learn to cope with this.

In an interview with Play Magazine magazine, the director of the game Sven Vinka said that he had long wanted to tell this story: "I always wanted to make a story about a serial killer who does not remember how he was a serial killer". However, only after the BG3 scriptwriters picked up the idea of ​​Dark Urge, it began to come true; Vinka says that "The scriptwriters accepted her, making her much, much, much more original history".

The Dark Urge remains an enveloped secret, and what we heard about the character with this "history of origin" He still says that in order to deal with darkness in his heart, you will have to collect many details together. Wink assumes that we will get the final answer to this question only after we get to the title city underlying the game, noting that the trip to Baldur’s Gate, the city that the god Baal, the murderer, certainly creates, creates the city "An interesting combination".

Baldur’s Gate 3 is a large -scale role -playing game with the creators of the Divinity series: Original Sin. Larian announced the postponement of the release date of the version for the PC for a month in advance, from August 31 to August 3 to avoid a collision with Bethesda Starfield in early September.
