The long awaited Baldur’s gates 3 is finally here as Larian Studio kicks off it’s early access on PC.
Eager fans wanting to get an early look at Baldur’s gates 3 can now do so with the launch of the early access phase. And when we say early, we do mean it as the release only contains a small chunk of the planned full release, though mind you it’s been stated that this “small” chunk should span across roughly 25 hours worth of content. Still, the big purpose of this early access is to help the developers out as feedback collected from it will be used to help shape to full release of Baldur’s Gates 3. Down below you’ll find the early access launch trailer, along with key features that will be included in it.
Baldur’s Gates 3 Early Access Major Features
- Online multiplayer for up to four players allows adventurers to join forces in combat and split their party to follow their own quests and agendas. Concoct the perfect plan together… or introduce an element of chaos when your friends least expect it!
- Evolved, turn-based combat based on the D&D 5e ruleset. Team-based initiative, advantage and disadvantage, and roll modifiers join combat cameras, expanded environmental interactions, and a new fluidity in combat that rewards strategy and foresight.
- Define the future of the Forgotten Realms through your choices and the roll of the dice. No matter who you play as or what you roll, the world and its inhabitants will react to your story.
- Player-initiated turn-based mode allows players to pause the world around them at any time, even outside of combat, letting you set up a tactical advantage before combat begins, pull off a heist with pin-point precision, escape a fiendish trap and more. Split your party, prepare ambushes, sneak in the darkness — and create your own luck!
We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any development update as they come in. For now, if you want to enjoy the early access you can head on over to Steam to purchase it, or Stadia.
