Baldur’s Gate 3: The Physical Version Will Be Spread Across Multiple Discs!

In addition, the retail version of Larian Studios’ game has also experienced a slight delay.


In November, Larian announced that the Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition would only fit on three discs on the Xbox Series X, while the PlayStation 5 would get two discs of the excellent RPG in 2023. PC users were not so lucky: instead of being able to squeeze the game onto multiple discs, they only get a single disc with just the installer and the game’s CD key. And that’s it: you can download it from the Internet. It’s sad, but that’s how much love PC users get when it comes to retail releases…

Michael Douse, Larian’s publishing director, confirmed the change of plans on Twitter: “The Xbox retail version of Baldur’s Gate 3 will indeed have 4 discs, as we’re 500 megabytes over the limit for 3. The only option would have been to cut out some content, but that didn’t make sense, so 4 [discs] is confirmed. It’s likely that the March 25th date for Wave 1 will slip to the first week of April because of this, but we’ll start shipping each SKU in order of readiness. PC first. No disks makes life easy. 4 discs, hard!”

So the Xbox physical release will arrive in early April instead of late March, which isn’t that much of a delay, but it’s a delay nonetheless. The Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition (which can be purchased for $/€80) comes with a world map, the soundtrack on three CDs, a Mind Flayer poster, two badges, thirty-two stickers, and a large box similar to the old PC releases. There will also be digital extras (Divinity Item Pack, Bard Song Pack, Adventurer’s Pouch, exclusive dice skin, Rivellon paintings, plus digital D&D character cards, art book and soundtrack).

The Xbox version might remind us of the early 2000s, when DVD drives were not yet common and PC game magazines still offered more CDs with content…
