 Will Baldur's Gate 3 set new RPG standards?  Swen Vincke with a clear answer

The role-playing game Baldur’s Gate 3 was already a great success a few days after its release. For example, while Diablo 4 stands for hours of grind for most players, Baldur’s Gate 3 does many things differently. The developers deliberately avoided shop systems and microtransactions and are thus in a certain way committed to the playful freedom of users. In a recent interview with the English language magazine PC Gamer, the founder of Larian Swen Vincke explains the secret of Baldur’s Gate 3’s success.

When asked if Baldur’s Gate 3 sets new RPG benchmarks and standards, his response was this: “The problem I have is the use of the word standards”. “This is a video game, standards die every day. Things get reinvented. New things keep popping up. When I started in the industry, Assassin’s Creed set the new standard. It was over – nobody could make games like Assassin’s Creed, it stuck too much budget behind it, that should be the future, everyone had to consolidate, blah, blah, blah. That didn’t come true. With video games, there’s still so much room to explore, in the creative tree,” Vincke continued.

“With a small team, Disco Elysium changed the standards in no time at all,” says Vincke. “It’s a completely different standard now. There are so many games that change the standards to the point where there are no more standards, that was my thing. But I think you should always strive to evolve , especially in this medium, which differs from other media in that technological development has always been a big part of it, there has always been innovation, but at the same time it doesn’t take massive technological development to make something crazy and cool , which is different from what others have done before.”.
