Baldur’s Gate 3 Is About To Achieve Something No RPG Has Ever Done!

The soon-to-be-released Baldur’s Gate 3 hopes to achieve something that “no other RPG of its size” has been able to achieve.



Baldur’s Gate 3 is aiming to achieve something that “no other RPG of its scale” has succeeded. That is, “seamless, drop-in, drop-out co-op” on the Xbox Series S console. The game will be one of the most significant new RPG releases of the year. PC gamers can play it as early as this week. But console players will have to wait a little longer to start the adventure on their platform of choice.

The PC release date for Baldur’s Gate 3 is August 3, while the game will be available on PS5 consoles on September 6. An Xbox version of BG3 is also in development. However, there is no release date for it yet. Although no exclusivity agreement has been reached, BG3 has effectively become a timed PS5 console exclusive due to the delay of the Xbox version. Unfortunately, it appears that the Xbox version of the game is being delayed due to the Xbox Series S console.

Although Larian recently said that the Xbox Series S would not hold back the console game, he also admitted that getting Baldur’s Gate 3’s split-screen co-op game to work on the Xbox Series S would prove to be a “huge technical hurdle”.

Michael Douse said this, commenting on Twitter. “We have quite a few engineers working very hard to do what no other RPG of this scale has achieved: seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op on Series S.”

All games released for Xbox Series X must have S Series games. This has proved controversial. Some in the industry have criticised the Xbox Series S and accused it of holding back game development on this generation. Larian has hit back at this narrative. But it’s clear that it’s the Xbox Series S that will ultimately cause Xbox gamers to have to wait longer for BG3.

Douse tweeted that he hopes to have an update for the Xbox version of Baldur’s Gate 3 by the end of the year. This could mean that Xbox players won’t be able to play the game until 2024 at the earliest. Some Xbox fans were hoping to play BG3 before 2023, so this will likely disappoint, but it also shows the studio’s commitment to quality that it’s not giving up on making split-screen co-op work when playing the game on Xbox Series S.

BG3 really does seem to exceed expectations, which is a big part of why it’s generated so much hype. Time will tell if the game lives up to this hype, but the odds seem good.
