After sitting in Early Access for over three years, Baldur’s Gate 3 has finally launched, and is an incredibly impressive game. This polished gem is easily one of the best and most detailed RPGs ever made, offering hundreds of hours of quality Dungeons and Dragons-based adventuring.
Not wanting to make their players wait, Larian Studios released a shortened version of their new Dungeons and Dragons based Baldur’s Gate 3 game in early access. And while there is limited content at the moment, the game already feels like a brewing epic masterpiece.
