Larian Studios has announced that the official release of Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available for PC via Steam, GOG, and GeForce NOW, NVIDIA’s cloud gaming platform. Described as an epic RPG that has been six years in the making, the new game, which is set in the universe of Dungeons & Dragons, features support for two of NVIDIA’s premier gaming technologies, DLSS 2 and DLAA, the former of which is said to offer up to 93% better performance on GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs. Baldur’s Gate 3 will additionally be available for PS5 on September 6, or three days earlier, on September 3, for those who have purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition. A Mac version is also targeted for release that same month.
“It’s hard to express how much love went into creating Baldur’s Gate 3,” said Swen Vincke, Larian Studios director. “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 is a 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 customisable Origin hero with its own unique mechanics and story. Whoever you choose to be, adventure, loot, battle and romance your way across the Forgotten Realms and beyond.
Gather your party and take the adventure online as a party of up to four. Caught in a conflict between devils, deities, and sinister otherworldly forces, together you will determine the fate of the Forgotten Realms.
