The new screenshots showcase a bit more of what to expect from the anticipated RPG, including new looks at the conversation and dialogue system and a glimpse of combat. Rooted in the world of Dungeons & Dragons, from what we’ve seen so far it seems like Baldur’s Gate 3 is a worthy successor to the classic RPGs that it follows.
Larian detailed earlier this year that the Early Access build will be comprised of the first act of the game, and overall will showcase around the first 25 hours of the game. Specifically, the studio explained that be able to create characters from 6 different classes and a number of different races, and that the build will have most of the features that the studio is aiming to implement within the final game. Naturally, given that this is an Early Access build, players can and should expect to see bugs, but more content and updates will be provided as the build progresses in development.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is available through Early Access today on PC and Mac. For a closer look at the game, you can check out the screenshots below:
