Apparently, Baldur’s Gate 3 isn’t messy, it’s paddling: The role-playing game advertises, among other things, with its Esports Extrasntic size. At the same time, the replayability should be very high, because we can approach and decide so many things very differently.
Of course, this also has an effect on the ending: there are probably around 17,000 different variations of the ending. But they probably only differ in minor details.
In Baldur’s Gate 3 there are really many different versions of the ending
That’s what it’s about: Baldur’s Gate 3 continues a particularly time-honoured RPG series. Baldur’s Gate 2 is still one of the best RPGs out there and the third part comes over 20 years later from the people who made Divinity: Original Sin 2 – also one of the best RPGs out there. The whole thing is correspondingly large and the fans are correspondingly hot.
Here you can get an impression of the mammoth RPG:
17,000 variations of the ending: In an interview with Fextralife, developer studio Larian explains that the many decisions in Baldur’s Gate 3 should of course also affect the end. You can kill companions or other NPCs, flirt with them, ignore certain quests, or anger factions. Theoretically, 17,000 people could play Baldur’s Gate 3 and all see a different ending.

What does it mean exactly? Probably not that there really are 17,000 completely different endings. Instead, there are likely to be different endings to the story, but then in some cases there is a character in the background that is missing in others because he died. So it’s most likely small, subtle details that differ.
How many endings are there now? When asked how many main endings there are in Baldur’s Gate 3, lead writer Chrystal Ding couldn’t give an answer. So it seems that we are dealing with such a large number of significantly different story endings that the number does not stick directly in our heads. It should therefore be significantly more than just four or five.
This is Baldur’s Gate 3: In contrast to Baldur’s Gate 1 and BG2, Part 3 relies on turn-based combat, but there is still a lot of dice rolling. The spectacle seems to be able to capture the spirit of fun and chaotic tabletop RPG rounds and will initially only be released for PS5 and PC. While the PC release was brought forward to August 3, 2023, the PS5 version will not come until September 6th.
What do you think of so many variations of the ending? Are you in the mood for Baldur’s Gate 3 and want to play through it several times?
