New details about the expansion Final Fantasy XIV called Dawntrail have been announced. I also discuss Netflix Mobile games monetization options, and Larian Studios added a quest to Baldur's Gate 3 to honor a fans father.
Baldur's Gate 3 has introduced a new quest that pays homage to a fan's father, who is battling Alzheimer's. This heartwarming gesture was inspired by a touching letter received by Larian Studios. The developers, known for their sensitivity and creativity, chose to honor this in their acclaimed game. As an avid gamer, I find such stories highlight the profound impact games can have on our lives. The quest remains discreet, respecting the privacy of the fan, which is a commendable approach by Larian Studios. For those yet to experience this epic saga, Baldur's Gate 3 promises a blend of deep storytelling and immersive gameplay. Have you had the chance to explore this masterpiece?
