When you hear Swen Vincke's name, you probably imagine him either with a bunch of awards or wearing a suit of armor. If you miss him cosplaying a knight, you will love the news: Vincke might appear at The Game Awards 2023 in armor.

He's been thinking about wearing the famous costume for a week now, but it looks like he's made up his mind. On X/Twitter, the director announced that he'd wear it if Adam Smith, Larian Studio's lead writer, came to the ceremony dressed up as a bear.

"I would never deny the people what they crave," responded Smith, and this seems to have set the plan in motion. Soon, the director of publishing Michael Douse shared that the person responsible for carrying the armor faced some difficulties on the way as his plane broke. Thankfully, the man got a new flight, so the armor should now arrive on time, "if all goes to plan."

This armor is most likely the same Vincke sometimes wears for interviews and promotional materials. You probably remember it from this Baldur's Gate 3 video:

Speaking of Baldur's Gate 3, the game has recently received a new patch, which finally added a playable epilogue, a hardcore mode, and more.

BG3 is nominated for 8 awards at TGA, including the prestigious Game of the Year one – the most important trophy for any video game. It would be awesome to see Vincke receiving it in full armor, but we'll have to wait until December 7 at 7:30 p.m. EST/4:30 p.m. PST.
