Larian Studios, the developer behind Baldur’s Gate 3, is responding to rumors of gnomes being a playable race after CEO Swen Vincke let it slip.

Larian Studios had a puny response to a rumor that a new playable race would be added to Baldur’s Gate 3.

The developer has all but confirmed via social media remarks that the gnomes are joining Baldur’s Gate 3 as a playable option.

While no additional information about their in-game abilities or available sub-races has been leaked, it’s enough to inspire players to start imagining their dream gnome character.

The game is still in early access, and it’s unclear whether gnomes will be added before or after the game’s official release.
