Baldur's Gate 3 (opens in new tab) screenshots have been leaked before the game's official gameplay trailer set to air later today. The screenshots show a turn-based combat system and close-ups of characters during multiple-choice conversations.

The images, shared on ResetEra (opens in new tab) and Imgur, are visually impressive and the series' new updated look is reminiscent of Larian Studio's other highly successful RPG series, Divinity: Original Sin 2. The first detailed announcement about the Baldur's Gate is happening today at PAX East in the form of a gameplay reveal trailer. The event takes place at 12 pm ET / 3 pm ET / 8 pm UK so it won't be a long wait until more information is released about Larian Studio's newest strategy RPG. 

The first Baldur's Gate released back in 1998 with Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn releasing in 2000. There have been multiple expansions and the release of an enhanced edition since then, but this third game will be following a new story set in the era of Forgotten Realms.

Baldur's Gate 3 currently has no official release date, but it's been confirmed that it's coming to Early Access this year along with the release of several other D&D-based games. 

Check out some of the screenshots below.
