Baldur’s Gate 3 Release Date: After much anticipation, Baldur’s Gate 3 has finally been given an official release date of August 31st, 2023. The game has been in Steam Early Access for almost three years now, and it’s been over two decades since the release of its predecessor, Baldur’s Gate 2.
During Sony’s State of Play broadcast, fans were treated to a sneak peek of the game, which revealed a new antagonist in the form of a necromancer played by acclaimed actor JK Simmons. Additionally, split-screen co-op for two players on PS5 or online with four players was also shown in the trailer.
Set in the land of Faerûn, Baldur’s Gate 3 takes players on a journey where they face the mind flayers, a hostile and otherworldly force that is infecting people’s brains with parasitic tadpoles. As players battle this enemy, they will also experience mysterious new powers that come with their own corruption.
The game offers a cinematic RPG experience set in the Forgotten Realms, where players can create their own character or choose from a selection of handcrafted Origin characters, each with their unique traits and outlook on the world. As the narrative unfolds, the stories of these characters intersect, and the player’s choices will determine their fate, whether it’s redemption, salvation, domination, or many other possible outcomes.
In conclusion, the highly anticipated Baldur’s Gate 3 has fans excited with its official release date and the addition of new features like split-screen co-op. With its immersive RPG experience, players will be drawn into a world of adventure, danger, and the lure of power. The game promises to be a worthy addition to the Baldur’s Gate series and a must-play for fans of the franchise and newcomers alike.
