Great news for all PS5 players who have been eagerly waiting to dive into the world of Baldur’s Gate 3! The highly-anticipated RPG is now available for those who pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition.
While PC players were able to enjoy the game last month, console players had to exercise a bit more patience. However, Sony console owners can finally join in on the excitement as Larian Studios’ masterpiece is now accessible to pre-order owners of the game’s premium editions.
To give fans a taste of what’s in store, Larian has released a teaser:
Similar to its PC counterpart, the PS5 version of Baldur’s Gate 3 will be available in early access. This means that players can expect a few quirks and bugs as the team continues to refine the game.
For those PS5 players who can’t afford the special editions, don’t worry! Baldur’s Gate 3 will be available for purchase on September 6.
As for Xbox Series X players, the wait won’t be much longer. Larian Studios’ CEO and director, Swen Vincke, recently announced that the game will launch on Xbox Series X|S before December, as the team is making significant progress.
Previously, technical challenges had caused the release on the two consoles to be delayed, but Vincke expressed his optimism: “We’ve found a solution that allows us to bring Baldur’s Gate 3 to Xbox players this year.”
Vincke added, “It’s 2023. And 2023 is narrowing, so it’s already pretty precise in my book. Between September and November… So, as fast as we can honestly.”
Our editor-in-chief, Jake, shared his impressions of the game after playing it for 50 hours on PC: “This wasn’t enough to get through the game, and I’m still in the early to mid stages of Act 2, but it’s more than enough to get a sense of the sprawling scale and depth of the game here.” He awarded the highly-anticipated RPG a perfect five out of five stars.
While Baldur’s Gate 3 is undoubtedly one of the greatest RPGs of recent times, newcomers may find it a bit overwhelming. If you’re looking for guidance, be sure to check out our detailed Baldur’s Gate 3 best class guide.
