Baldur’s 3 release date
If you’re excited about Baldur’s Gate 3, then you’ve got a while to wait. Sure, we got our first look at the game during Larian Studios’ PAX East broadcast, however the game still has a way to go.

Everything from saving throws to death rolls, the game breathes and bleeds like a D&D campaign put together by the master storytellers at Larian Studios.
While the release date might be a bit in flux, we do know that Larian is planning to bring Baldur’s Gate 3 to early access sometime in 2020, there just isn’t a clear set date yet. The developers have also assured fans that the early access version will contain plenty of content without having it all—as they want players to have something to do after full release, too.
