Baldur’s Gate 3 was originally meant to hit Steam and GOG Early Access on September 30th. However, Larian has announced a slight delay, with the game now releasing on October 6th. According to the team, this small delay will allow it to further improve overall stability.

Baldur’s Gate 3 will be using the new Divinity 4.0 engine. Players will venture through the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons & Dragons in Larian’s biggest adventure yet. Players will also choose from a wide selection of D&D races and classes or play as an origin character with a hand-crafted background. Additionally, players will adventure, loot, battle and romance as they journey through the Forgotten Realms and beyond.

Moreover, Larian has revealed the official PC requirements for Baldur’s Gate 3.
