Baldur’s Gate 3 Is Out Now On PS5 With Cross-Saves, DualSense Controller Features

Following its highly successful release on PC, Baldur’s Gate 3, the beloved RPG developed by Larian Studios, has now made its way to PlayStation 5. While the game has been available on PS5 for a few days, it was previously limited to those who purchased the more expensive edition.

One notable feature of Baldur’s Gate 3 is its cross-save support, allowing players to seamlessly switch between PS5 and PC while keeping their progress intact. It’s worth noting that a Larian account is required for this feature, but a PS Plus subscription is not necessary.

Baldur’s Gate 3 on PlayStation 5

Baldur’s Gate 3 has been optimized for the PlayStation 5’s controller, and Larian Studios has made efforts to ensure that the game can be enjoyed using just a controller and a few buttons and triggers. The game’s interface has been streamlined and redesigned with radial menus, providing a more intuitive experience when playing with a controller. The most essential tools, such as the map, journal, spellbook, character sheet, combat log, and more, can be accessed with the pull of a trigger button. Additionally, the DualSense controller’s unique features are utilized in the game. The light bar on the controller will change color to match your magic spells, and the brightness will intensify during intense moments in the game. The haptic feedback of the controller will synchronize with the on-screen action, enhancing the immersion and allowing players to “feel” the gameplay.

The full launch of Baldur’s Gate 3 on PlayStation 5 includes hotfix #5, which addresses PS5-specific issues, along with various other improvements and changes. You can find the detailed patch notes for Baldur’s Gate 3 on the official PlayStation Blog.
