Baldur’s Gate 3 leaves gamers with a mess of selections, and a few are extra nuanced than others. Nevertheless, one participant discovered what could be essentially the most terrifying decision to Act one.
Whereas most gamers method Act one by deciding whether or not to facet with the Druids of the Emerald Grove and Tiefling refugees or the Cult of the Absolutist Goblins, one participant discovered an particularly distinctive spin on executing an “evil” playthrough because the Darkish Urge.
I’m going to preface this by saying that it’ll embrace spoilers. Whereas the sport has been out for a minute and plenty of gamers have gotten by way of Act One, this particular sequence of occasions isn’t one thing most gamers have seen of their video games.
As a fan posted to Reddit on Sunday, Nov. 12, it’s attainable to do one thing “much more unsettling” than siding with the Goblins attacking the Emerald Grove in Baldur’s Gate 3. As a substitute, what this participant determined to do was to steal the Idol of Silvanus worshipped by the Druids with out investigating the Druid’s tyrannical momentary chief, Kagha.
Taking the idol results in a cutscene wherein the Druids successfully declare battle in opposition to the refugees they had been beforehand defending. They are going to slay the entire strongest Tieflings earlier than imprisoning the remainder. The remaining Druids then kill the imprisoned refugees.
What makes this line of motion so “unsettling” is how simply gamers can seemingly sit again and watch all of it occur with no need to contain themselves within the preventing till all of the Tieflings are slain, although the participant is the one who stole the idol within the first place.
“This, I believe, is essentially the most horrifying and evil method to deal with Act one,” the participant stated. “It was so unhealthy that I positively felt shook after.”
Contemplating how troublesome it’s for a lot of gamers to abdomen raiding the grove throughout a conventionally executed “evil” playthrough, it’s protected to say this isn’t for the faint of coronary heart. However for these seeking to discover the darkest components of Baldur’s Gate 3, you may have a brand new method to play out Act one.
