Every day we get a little closer to Baldur's Gate 3. I’ve accepted that this game will probably make my wife a video game widow for at least a few weeks; my wife has also begun her preparations for my absence. Yesterday, Larian Studios revealed a new video introducing the game's final central antagonist: Orin the Red, voiced by Maggie Robertson (Lady Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village). She is the third, and final protagonist, at least that’s what they’re telling us. Personally, I trust nothing. “A practitioner in the art of inflicting pain and a grandmaster of murder, Orin has killed for many years but has yet to be caught, thanks in part to her shapeshifting abilities, which enable her to take the form of anyone – perhaps even someone in your camp.” As Orin, Maggie Robertson joins General Ketheric Thorm (J.K. Simmons) and Lord Enver Gortash (Jason Isaacs) to complete the “unholy triumvirate” of villains in Baldur’s Gate 3. This voice cast is stacked; I can't wait to interact with all of them.
Baldur’s Gate 3 releases on August 3rd on PC and September 6 on PS5.
