During the latest PlayStation State of Play, Larian Studios revealed that Baldur’s Gate III will be coming to PlayStation 5 and will release simultaneously with the PC version on August 31st!

Baldur’s Gate III – Release Date Reveal Trailer:

The land of Faerûn is under siege by a hostile and otherworldly force known as mind flayers. Their army expands with every brain they infect with parasitic tadpoles, a creature that now wriggles deep within your own mind. You are becoming one of them: a monster feared across many worlds. But as their corruption grows within you, so do mysterious new powers.

Following the event, Larian clarified that the RPG is not exclusive to PlayStation. However, the team isn’t ready to confirm the game will release on Xbox consoles as they have run into development issues with the platform. Currently, the main issue is getting split-screen co-op to work on the Xbox Series S.

Baldur’s Gate III is now set to release on both PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam on August 31st. Remember, if you’re on PC and want to dive into the action straight away, the game is currently available in Early Access.

This was a most pleasant surprise!! 😻 I was sure it'd be at least a year after the PC release before we saw it on consoles. And my birthday's in August too so it was really nice of Larian & Sony to give me this gift!! Hope all's going well at Uni, Tom!
