“From the creators of Divinity: Original Sin 2 comes a next-generation RPG set in the Forgotten Realms. Gather your party and return to Baldur’s Gate 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.
