Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access Details Revealed
Larian Studios dropped some info about Early Access for Baldur's Gate 3, which it is calling its "most ambitious RPG yet." From system requirements to the amount of content, players got a heads up on what to expect.
Larian said it anticipates Baldur's Gate 3 will be in Early Access for at least one year, and says not to purchase the game just yet if you want a polished experience. As written on the Steam page, the studio notes: "While we did our best to remove the most annoying bugs and optimize the game as much as we could, there are still plenty of issues and it will take us time to fix them. Only buy the game now if you want an early look or if you want to participate in community feedback. Otherwise, you’re probably best off waiting until version 1.0 releases."
Note: System requirements in screenshot below are subject to change.
Act 1 is the primary content for Early Access, which features around 25 hours of self-contained content and will support six player classes with the amount of races/subraces to be determined. It will have five origin characters, which you can recruit but not play as for now. Larian said to expect new features to be added during Early Access in the ramp up to relase, including new classes and races. Larian reiterated, "Most of Baldur’s Gate 3’s advertised features are included though some are still work in progress."
Currently, not every language is supported, due to the writers still developing the game. Acts 2 and 3 are very much a work in progress, so they will not be released until the official launch with 1.0. Larian says it sees the value in getting feedback and exploring game ideas with a live community, so Early Access seemed like a good fit for the game.
Early Access opens on September 30. You can visit the Steam page here for all the details.
