Watch the animated adventures of Baldur's Gate 3 continue as they travel from the land of 'Earlay Axes' to the region of 'L'awnch'

As someone who used to watch the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon before school every morning, I was delighted to see the first animated short for Baldur's Gate 3, which aired as part of the PC Gaming Show 2023 back in June. Now it's got a sequel of sorts. Mashed, the premiere source of videogame parody cartoons, has made a new video starring the intrepid heroes of Baldur's Gate 3.

The latest adventure of the Balduran Buddies sees Karlach, Astarion, Gale, and Shadowheart leaving the Early Access version of the game behind as they venture into the uncharted land of Launch. The original voice actors return, as does the authoritative narration of Amelia Tyler, who I would pay good money to have narrate my actual D&D campaign.

Rather than spoil it for you further I'll just let you watch the cartoon above. Keep an eye out for references to some deep beta content cuts, as well as antique internet memes, such as this classic video that debuted on 20 years ago.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
