In a surprising twist, the recently unveiled epilogue in Baldur’s Gate 3 has left players buzzing with anticipation. Larian Studios, the game’s developer, dropped a tantalizing hint in the form of a mysterious note discovered during the epilogue party at Withers’ temple.
Could this be the end of the game, or is there more in store for avid players?
The note, attributed to Withers himself, holds a cryptic message in a language players can’t decipher. Described as containing an image of a dark sun against a white sky, players are left wondering if this signals the arrival of additional Baldur’s Gate 3 content or an entirely new project by Larian Studios.
Withers’ temple underwent a makeover for the epilogue party, featuring a scroll strategically placed on his desk. The note, addressed to an unknown entity, hints at the possibility of a venture into a different Dungeons and Dragons setting.
Speculations arise, pointing towards the iconic “Dark Sun” setting, a realm distinct from the familiar Faerun of Baldur’s Gate.
Dark Sun, known for its post-apocalyptic desert world and unique races like half-elemental genasi and Thri-Khreen, could be a prime candidate for Larian Studios’ creative exploration. The setting, previously featured in video games like Dark Sun: Shattered Lands, might be due for a modern update.
However, the note’s reference to a “dark sun” might not be exclusively tied to the Dark Sun. Within Faerun, “dark sun” is an alias for Cyric, the god of lies and trickery. This opens up the possibility of a Baldur’s Gate 3 DLC centered around Cyric, offering intriguing connections to the game’s characters and events.
Cyric’s history, including his involvement in the murder of Mystra, the Goddess of Magic, and his opposition to Shar, adds layers of complexity. Fans are abuzz with speculation, eager to uncover whether Larian Studios has a new game or DLC up their sleeves.
The gaming community eagerly awaits further announcements as discussions about the mysterious note continue to captivate players. Whether it’s a Dark Sun adventure or a Cyric-focused DLC, one thing is certain – the future of Baldur’s Gate 3 holds exciting possibilities.
