With a new trailer for the role-playing game Baldur's Gate 3, Larian Studios has now announced the early access date. However, with a "maybe", because due to the corona pandemic it is currently not certain whether the deadline can be met.

You are allowed to Baldur's Gate 3 play much earlier than many might have thought. The early access version starts in August – maybe.

An uncertain appointment

Swen Vincke from Larian Studios explains the "maybe" in such a way that due to the changed work situation that the corona pandemic brings with it, this date may have to be postponed. It currently looks like the early access phase can start in August, but if there are delays, the date has to be postponed. Motion capturing plays an important role here. If all the necessary animations can be recorded and integrated, then the appointment in August is almost certain.

Swen Vincke continues to explain that a lot has changed since Baldur's Gate 3 was announced in February and feedback from fans has played a major role here. In addition, the EA version is not the final game. It will be further improved until the official launch date, which has not yet been mentioned.

However, improvements to date include improvements to the combat system, including camera settings and the initiative system. The team also revised the way the narrator presents the story. The integration of the D&D control system is making good progress and should feel better, according to Swen Vincke.

A new live stream to Baldur's Gate 3 will also take place on June 18. You can decide whether Swen Vincke takes on a powerful hobgoblin or descends into the world of the under-empire. During the livestream you get to see the current version of the role-playing game and can convince yourself of the improvements before you can – hopefully – watch the early-access version in August.
