Baldur’s Gate 3 was actually supposed to be released on PS5 and PC at the end of August. But as the developers at Larian Studios have now announced, the planned date will not be met. While PC players can look forward to an earlier release – this version will be released on August 3rd – the PS5 version will be pushed back a bit.
However, the release will only take place a few days later, namely on September 6th. This day should already be marked in red in the calendars of many role-playing fans, after all, another ambitious RPG will be released on the same day, namely Bethesda’s Starfield.
Baldur’s Gate 3 vs. Starfield
At the beginning of September there will be a “duel of role-playing exclusives” for PS5 and Xbox Series, although Baldur’s Gate 3 will definitely be released for Xbox at a later date.
As part of the announcement of the postponement, developer Larian Studios has also announced a few game facts that await us in Baldur’s Gate 3:
- 7 playable protagonists
- 11 playable races and 31 sub-races
- 12 classes and 46 subclasses
- Over 170 hours of film sequences
- Over 600 spells
- 60fps on PS5
At the 7th of July there will also be more information about the game and its scope during a live show. But it all looks as if quite a chunk is rolling towards us.

Baldur’s Gate 3 introduces new villain in gameplay trailer
The sequel to Bioware’s legendary RPG series will tell a new story set over 100 years after the events of its predecessors, taking you back to the town of Baldur’s Gate. There, illithids launch a full-scale attack on the Forgotten Realms: the so-called mind flayers with the tentacled beard can levitate, cast powerful spells and turn people with a plague into offspring. They also want to enslave all other living beings.
Baldur’s Gate 3 uses the fifth edition of the D&D rules (Dungeons & Dragons). In single player and multiplayer mode, you gather a group of four heroes (party) around a self-created main character. Unlike its predecessors, battles in Baldur’s Gate 3 will be turn-based.
