The Future Games Show Spring Showcase returns next month, and this time will be hosted by Baldur's Gate 3 and Final Fantasy alumni.

On Thursday, March 21 at 13:00 PT/ 16:00 ET/ 20:00 GMT, Ben Starr and Samantha Béart will join forces to host the latest iteration of the Future Games Show. Two of the breakout game acting stars of 2023, Starr is best known as the voice of Clive in Final Fantasy 16, while Béart lent her talents to Karlach in Baldur's Gate 3.

While the pair might not have acted together in-game, they did join forces for their own recent social media skit, 'Clive and Karlach start a dating agency.'
