Dragon's scale and witch's hair,
Take a peek soon, if you dare.
Tooth of wolf and impish blood,
Something wicked this way comes...


Posted earlier today on Instagram/Twitter, along with a rather innocuous image of a pot.

So they're teasing something: but what? Could it be the oft-teased big content patch? Or could Larian finally be revving up to show off one of the two big projects currently in development-- at least one of which, presumably, is an expansion/sequel to DOS?

I dunno about you folks, but I am super excited.

Its DOS related.

E3 in June will have some details on the new games.

To me it sounds like the promised update and also an expansion pack + release of linux version. Just guessing honest ;-)

Taken at its least optimistic, it sounds like it's adding some new potion recipes.

Yeah, the big (last?) update is the most likely explanation. Which should be coming... really soon.

As for E3, you really think anything will be announced? Most games take 2-3 years to develop, and usually aren't announced until they've been in development for a while. I could maybe see an expansion unveiled/teased at E3, but not the big new game with the big new IP Swen has been teasing for... years.

We finally figured out when we'll start announcing some of our new stuff (around E3) and if things continue to progress as they are, I think we'll be showing a lot between then and the end of the year.

Well CDPRojekt Red announced cyberpunk 2077 in 2012 so there are exceptions.With that in mind there is hope for an expansion announcement.

Yeah. Some developers (like SE or Bliaazrd) will announce games that are only in pre-development. Which is really annoying.

Anyway, Swen tweeted this morning about filming another KS update, so I imagine we'll see something very soon. Personally--I can't wait for that catchy update music.

I wonder if the circle might be related to certain flightless birds...

I'm rather sure they aren't carrying coconuts, anyway.

The explanation of "the circle". Sorry Lar, the beans have been spilt...

Every time there I run into trouble on the road, there is always a dwarf at the bottom of it. Don't they know how to drive above ground?

Nope, it's the circle under Swen's eyes

Circles make me think of mages. But I've no idea what it could mean in the context of DOS. Maybe they got around to doing time-of-day cycles?

Wouldn't mind seeing an expansion, along with the big patch the best of reasons for playthrough #2.

Circle being a day-cycle sounds optimistic... though personally I would say that's a waste of time compared to other content 0_o

I really don't expect a day/night cycle for original sin - ever. It's a ridiculous amount of work with little return for it at this point. I would like to see one in Larian's future adventures when they can design for it from the start, but retrofitting D:OS for one now is one of the least likely things I can imagine them doing.
