From Press Release:
DUBLIN – Aug. 3, 2023 – An epic RPG six years in the making and more than twenty years in the waiting, Baldur’s Gate 3 is out today on PC via Steam, GOG, and NVIDIA GeForce Now. Baldur’s Gate 3 is the next-generation RPG from the creators of Divinity: Original Sin 2, set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons and providing a level of breadth and depth unprecedented in a modern RPG. More than twenty years after the release of Baldur’s Gate 2, it’s finally time to return to the Forgotten Realms. Your choices shape this tale of fellowship and betrayal, sacrifice and survival, and the lure of absolute power.
Choose from 12 classes and 11 races from the D&D Player’s Handbook and create your own identity, or play as an Origin hero with a hand-crafted background. Or tangle with your inner corruption as the Dark Urge, a fully customizable Origin hero with its own unique mechanics and story. Whoever you choose to be, you’re free to adventure, loot, battle and romance your way across the Forgotten Realms and beyond.
Gather your friends and take the adventure online as a party of up to four players. Caught in a conflict between devils, deities, and sinister otherworldly forces, together you will determine the fate of the Forgotten Realms.
On releasing Baldur’s Gate 3 after three years in early access, Larian Studios director Swen Vincke said…
“It’s hard to express how much love went into creating Baldur’s Gate 3. For over six years, more than 400 of us poured our hearts and souls into making this, helped by over 2.5 million early access players who spent countless hours giving us feedback.
The result is a beautiful, rich universe where you can escape from your daily worries, experience adventure and wonder, and have many, many cool and exciting encounters. It’s a place where your identity and choices matter, where surprise lies around every corner, and where your agency is truly rewarded.
I’m super proud of what our team accomplished, and I hope you will have an incredible amount of fun exploring what we prepared for you.”
Baldur’s Gate 3 releases for PlayStation 5 on September 6 – the game arrives on September 3 for owners of the PS5 Digital Deluxe Edition. A release on Mac is also targeting early September. Additional platform support is TBD.
