It was very spoilery so I turned it off soon. Would love if someone can post a summary of spoiler-free features they announced/showed.

Here you go I didn't write this it's taken from Reddit.
Anyway these were my live thoughts during the presentation:

-Lol, Lae'zel "hair change" was just her in the initial cutscene with the wind blowing in her hair.

-I really like that the party doesn't really agree with the tadpole discussion, makes them feel much more dynamic.

-The subreddit got two shoutouts <3

-I was hoping people would pick option 1 in the Goblin camp, it's clear that there was something weird with the ring.

-The brain thing was gross. Then it got little paws and it became cute like a pet. Then they described what an Intellect Devourer was and it was gross again.

-Maybe next time they should limit what the audience picks? To ensure that no choice gets repeated.

-Did I heard 20+ hours of EA? That sounds good enough! Probably gonna take a lot more, anyway.

-Is Gale in a similar situation to Lohse? They mentioned there's a lot going on in his head and I'm wondering if they actually mean something more literally, because so far while he seemed a bit sad at times, nothing about him seems to indicate some struggle (other than his sad flashback briefly shown in the EA trailer). Maybe split personality? As long as he doesn't go full DA2 Anders, I'm fine with it.

-Shadowheart and Lae'zel hate each other. That's interesting.

-I'm really happy that they're taking their time and making sure every good idea isn't wasted.

-There seems to be way more freedom in BG3 when compared to DOS2. Pretty cool. Without leaks and being only digital, it will be fun to see everyone's discoveries in Early Access.

-I'm happy that they mentioned that they want conversations to feel like real conversations. Loved the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series so far, but it really bothers me how dialogue sometimes just feel like loooong info dumps.

-Hope we can eventually get a familiar wolf.

-Owlbear seems cool, but I'm NOT going to have the owlbear in the camp after knowing what might happen to the other creatures that follow you.

-People in the chat saying stuff like "Wait, Early Access is today???" to mess with people who have lag are pure evil.

-September 30 is actually pretty close.

-The questions asked and chosen were actually great.

-Apparently, some of the romance content will be already in Early Access. Sort of like some of Ifan's dialogue, I imagine.

-I'm okay with less companions when compared to older Baldur's Gate. Quality > Quantity.
No summary/bullet point list is available.

While my PC is fairly above the Recommended settings, and given I'll be playing BGIII in 1080p, those 70 GB ….

Well not surprising as the last two Original Sin games kept increasing in size.

Lets See.

Original Sin - 10 GB
Original Sin II - 58 GB

From what I gathered BG3 will be a huge game with an insane amount of NPCs and dialogue options, most if not all voice acted. I'd expect those files to get pretty big.

Thanks for the pointers by the way. Sad that I know now that there is an owlbear and bad things can happen to other animals you own if you take it along, it's the kind of thing I want to discover by myself, but there isn't a perfect world where you can get info and not spoiler.

If someone would have told me 5-20 years ago I would be skipping Baldur's Gate 3 in 2020 I would have considered that person insane.

I'll skip ir in 2020 as well, since it will be first launched as an EA title. But I'll grab it up ahead, 2021, 2022, I just don't know when it will be.

Honestly, it's a good thing that the bitter old timers are skipping BG3. We don't need their feedback to somehow worm their way into the game. This way we can get an actual good game instead of another piece of shit that seems to be coded in a 20 years old engine with pre-rendered 2D scenarios that hide half the explorable surface, and not even the ability to turn the camera.

So, they get whatever second of glory they think they get when they announce out loud that they won't be playing the game, the rest of us get a few hundreds of hours of fun. Sounds like a win to me.

Might not be a bad idea to skip it when it's released in 2021 too. Wait for 2022 when the patches/expansions are done and the "Definitive Edition" is out

Bah I waited long enough. I'll play it on release & in 2021 and 2022 also. We all know a definite edition and a crap ton of patches will be released. It's the golden rule nowadays.

I'm more interested if any DLC or expansions are planned as well?

Re-post of my reply from my news thread for the game.

All I know is it's been twenty years since the last game. Sure I wish plenty of things were different but at the end of the day I''ll accept it because this was a long time coming.

Frankly I blame WoTC they were only interested in licensing IP for MMO's in the past. So I don't really know what magic Swen conjured to make them finally change their minds.

Now someone contact Obsidian for a NWN 3. Yeah not gonna happen but I can dream.

As if making BG3 a modern game was not enough! How about playing the game through a TV using Stadia and a *controller*?! What say you bitter old-timers?

Please take your snide humorous replies and shove them were the sun don't shine. There I said it nicely and not in a crude manor. I was referring to OwlCat, Obsidian, and Larian.

30+ patches and a definite edition 1-2 years later.

To answer your question yes there are owlbears in BG III.

If anyone is wondering: Owlbears aren't Owlcat's invention. They've been around in DnD for ages.
