Intimacy Coordinators and Bear Love: Baldur’s Gate 3 is Breaking Boundaries!

This game is not afraid to get up close and personal! Baldur’s Gate 3, developed by Larian, has taken the bold step of hiring intimacy coordinators for its romantic scenes. Yes, you read that right! They’ve got professionals making sure everyone feels safe and comfortable while getting their game-on.

In a recent interview with the BBC, actor Devora Wilde spilled the beans about the inclusion of intimacy coordinators in the game. And guess what? She absolutely loved it! Finally, some serious measures are being taken to ensure the boundaries of actors are respected during the intense creative process of bringing love to the digital world.

These coordinators are like the Cupid of the gaming industry. They’re trained to choreograph those steamy moments, advocate for the actors, and bridge the gap between them and the production crew. And while it’s become common in film and TV, video game productions are just starting to catch up. Larian is leading the charge with this innovative move, and others should definitely follow suit.

Speaking of moving boundaries, let’s dive into one of the game’s more…unconventional features. Players in Baldur’s Gate 3 will have the delightful option of engaging in amorous activities as a bear or with a bear. Yeah, this revelation got Larian temporarily banned from TikTok. But hey, that just shows how ridiculously awesome this game is!

So what do the actors think about all this wild stuff? According to Jennifer English, who plays the half-elf cleric Shadowheart, they had a blast during filming. The sessions never made her go “yuck,” although she does admit to having quite a low “yuck” threshold. Well, that’s definitely good news for the bear lovers out there!

Baldur’s Gate 3 is charging onto the scene on August 3rd for PC, with the PlayStation 5 version following shortly after, going head-to-head with Starfield on September 6th. Talk about a power-packed game lineup!

And let’s not forget about the mind-boggling amount of content Baldur’s Gate 3 has to offer. Get ready for seven playable protagonists, eleven playable races, twelve classes, and a staggering forty-six subclasses! If that’s not enough, brace yourself for over six hundred spells and actions. Larian is taking the concept of magic to a whole new level!
