baldur's gate 3

Baldur’s Gate 3 is blasting its way into early access soon. Maybe.

Larian Studios has just announced that Early Access for its upcoming RPG Baldur’s Gate 3 will launch in August. While that date isn’t set in stone, it is the team’s current goal. 

The third game in the popular series is set to bring the franchise into the modern era. This time around players can expect cinematic dialogues, higher production value, co-op mode, and gameplay based on Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.

The new trailer highlights the level of depth and care that went into creating the game. It also introduces the expected mood and tone of this grand adventure.

Along with the brand new trailer available to watch below, Larian Studios also released an update video showing how far the team have come since its showing at PAX East 2020 earlier this year. 

Fans don’t have to wait too much longer to find out more, either. Baldur’s Gate 3 is set to kick off the D&D Live show, which starts tomorrow, 18th June, at 6pm BST/10am PT. Until then, give the trailer a watch below.


Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling her cat Usagi and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
