Druid Class Comes to Baldur’s Gate III in Upcoming Nature’s Power Patch

Baldur’s Gate III

Larian Studios have announced the Druid class will be coming to Early Access RPG Baldur’s Gate III in its next major patch.

As described during the Panel From Hell II livestream, Druids are magic-users who specialize in using the power of nature to (usually) ensure that nature and balance are kept in check. This grants them the ability to control the weather and plants, heal allies, talk to animals, or turn into an animal.

Druids also have Circles that act as specializations. The Circle of the Land emphasizes nature magic, while the Circle of the Moon focuses on the Wildshape spell. Druids are highly versatile, having access to weapon skills, light armor, and magic. They act like a combination of the Wizard and Cleric with access to over 30 spells.

The class will be available when Patch #4: Nature’s Power is launched. The Panel From Hell II also revealed the patch will add optional “loaded dice” to avoid extreme results in combat or skill checks for dialogue, enhanced cutscenes and new scenes when talking to the dead, being able to see an ally’s stats and gear in multiplayer, and quality of life improvements (thanks RPG Site!)

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

 

Gather your party, and return to the Forgotten Realms in a tale of fellowship and betrayal, sacrifice and survival, and the lure of absolute power.

Mysterious abilities are awakening inside you, drawn from a Mind Flayer parasite planted in your brain. Resist, and turn darkness against itself. Or embrace corruption, and become ultimate evil.

From the creators of Divinity: Original Sin 2 comes a next-generation RPG, set in the world of Dungeons and Dragons.

GATHER YOUR PARTY

Choose from a wide selection of D&D races and classes, or play as an origin character with a hand-crafted background. Adventure, loot, battle and romance as you journey through the Forgotten Realms and beyond. Play alone, and select your companions carefully, or as a party of up to four in multiplayer.

AN EXPANSIVE ORIGINAL STORY
Abducted, infected, lost. You are turning into a monster, but as the corruption inside you grows, so does your power. That power may help you to survive, but there will be a price to pay, and more than any ability, the bonds of trust that you build within your party could be your greatest strength. Caught in a conflict between devils, deities, and sinister otherworldly forces, you will determine the fate of the Forgotten Realms together.

NEXT GENERATION RPG

Forged with the new Divinity 4.0 engine, Baldur’s Gate 3 gives you unprecedented freedom to explore, experiment, and interact with a world that reacts to your choices. A grand, cinematic narrative brings you closer to your characters than ever before, as you venture through our biggest world yet.

NO ADVENTURE WILL BE THE SAME
The Forgotten Realms are a vast, detailed and diverse world, and there are secrets to be discovered all around you — verticality is a vital part of exploration. Sneak, dip, shove, climb, and jump as you journey from the depths of the Underdark to the glittering rooftops of the Upper City. How you survive, and the mark you leave on the world, is up to you.

  • Online multiplayer for up to four players allows you to combine your forces in combat, and split your party to follow your own quests and agendas. Concoct the perfect plan together… or introduce an element of chaos when your friends least expect it.
  • Origin Characters offer a hand-crafted experience, each with their own unique traits, agenda, and outlook on the world. Their stories intersect with the entire narrative, and your choices will determine whether those stories end in redemption, salvation, domination, or many other outcomes.
  • Evolved turn-based combat, based on the D&D 5e ruleset. Team-based initiative, advantage & disadvantage, and roll modifiers join combat cameras, expanded environmental interactions, and a new fluidity in combat that rewards strategy and foresight.
  • Define the future of the Forgotten Realms through your choices, and the roll of the dice. No matter who you play, or what you roll, the world and its inhabitants will react to your story.
  • Player-initiated turn-based mode allows you to pause the world around you at any time even outside of combat. Whether you see an opportunity for a tactical advantage before combat begins, want to pull off a heist with pin-point precision, or need to escape a fiendish trap. Split your party, prepare ambushes, sneak in the darkness — create your own luck!

Baldur’s Gate III is in Early Access on Windows PC (via Steam and GOG), and Google Stadia.
