Larian Studios has announced that the Early Access phase for Baldur’s Gate 3 will begin on September 30th. According to the developers, the game will have over 45k dialogues and over 590 characters in Early Access.
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.
From what we know so far, Baldur’s Gate 3 won’t be open-world. Instead, the game will have huge regions that you will travel between acts. Furthermore, the game promises to touch upon the story of Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2 in meaningful ways.
