Baldur’s Gate 3 has been chugging along in development as Larian Studios hopes to deliver its next great RPG. While we know that the game is targeting an August release, new details about that launch have been revealed. During the February PlayStation State of Play, Larian Studios announced that Baldur’s Gate 3 will come to PS5 on launch date in August, with local co-op enabled.

The Baldur’s Gate 3 announcement came in a new gameplay trailer that was featured at Sony’s latest showcase. When Baldur’s Gate 3 launches on August 31, 2023, it will be available for PS5 as well as PC. What’s more, players looking to go on an adventure with a friend won’t be required to play online to do so. Baldur’s Gate 3’s PS5 version will feature split-screen co-op.
