Baldur’s Gate 3 Early Access is now on Steam, Gog and, Google Stadia
Baldur’s Gate 3 is an expansive, cinematic, player-driven RPG based on 5e D&D. It features a
rich character creation system where players can create an avatar based on 16 different D&D races and subraces, select their cantrips, skills & abilities, and enter a world where their actions truly define the story.
Baldur’s Gate 3 expands on Larian’s award-winning narrative gameplay both through the
the advent of cinematic storytelling, and with dice-rolls for key decisions throughout the game, in
and out of combat. Dialogue options often have multiple responses, and some responses may
require a dice roll to succeed, defined by both luck as well as the attributes of the player
character, or circumstances of the situation.
The Forgotten Realms are a vast, detailed, and diverse world, and there are secrets to be discovered all around – verticality is a vital part of the exploration. They can sneak, dip, shove, climb, and jump as they journey from the depths of the Underdark to the glittering rooftops of the Upper City. How they survive, and the mark they leave on the world, is up to them:
- Online Multiplayer for up to 4 players allows players to combine their forces in combat, and split their party to follow their own quests and agendas. They can concoct the perfect plan together… or introduce an element of chaos when their friends least expect it.
- Evolved, turn-based combat, based on the D&D 5e ruleset. The team-based initiative, advantage & disadvantage, and roll modifiers join combat cameras, expanded environmental interactions, and a new fluidity in combat that rewards strategy and foresight.
- Defining the future of the forgotten realms through their choices, and the roll of the dice. No matter who they play, or what they roll, the world and its inhabitants will react to their story.
- Player-initiated turn-based mode allows the players to pause the world around them at any time even outside of combat. Whether they see an opportunity for a tactical advantage before combat begins, want to pull off a heist with pinpoint precision, or need to escape a fiendish trap. They can Split their party, prepare ambushes, sneak in the darkness – and create their own luck!
Baldur’s Gate 3 today releases into Early Access on Steam, GOG, Google Stadia, and Mac which marks the beginning of the game’s journey towards full release.
