Baldur’s Gate 3 has been in Early Access for about half a year. For the developers at Larian Studios, the role-playing game is already a complete success, despite the unfinished state. A lot of feedback has been collected over the past few months. Players were recently able to experience the first changes as a result of this with the major patch 4, which, in addition to the druids as a new playable class, also brought many changes with it, which are based on suggestions from the community. So the developer is on the right track, but fans will have to wait a while before the finished version is released.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 already spent a whole year in Early Access. For Baldur’s Gate 3, at least the same period is expected. In a conversation with the Internet platform Destructoid, Larian boss Swen Vinke said: “We still have a lot of work to do. But we know what we are doing and when we … well when we will have reached the end, it’s in. It’s in.” View. There’s just a lot of work left to do “. So the developers know exactly what they have to achieve in order to be finished. Only when they will reach this point cannot yet foresee.
Like so many developers, it was initially a challenge for Larian Studios to adapt to the needs of the pandemic. In particular, the ability of department heads to communicate directly with their teams was one of the more difficult problems. Swen Vinke emphasizes, among other things, the area of sound mixing, which simply works better in direct contact. The motion capture recordings for the animations in the game can only be carried out with the appropriate personnel on site. Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently available as an early access version with the first 25 hours of play on Steam and Stadia.
