Baldur’s Gate 3 Animated Short Belatedly Celebrates Exit from Early Access

Gale, Astarion, Karlach and Shadowheart finally arrive at Baldur's Gate but must contend with themselves and Quality Assurance.

Posted By | On 13th, Sep. 2023

Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate 3 was released last week for PlayStation 5 but made an even bigger splash last month when it exited Steam Early Access for PC. Somewhat belatedly, the developer has released a new animated short, which sees the party going from early access to the city of Baldur’s Gate in the final game.

As a follow-up to the last short (also animated by Mashed), it sees the party of Gale, Astarion, Karlach, and Shadowheart encountering themselves. The results are less than ideal as they’re jailed with other Beta Content, awaiting destruction at the hands of the dragon of Quality Assurance. A subtle reference to the game’s “cut content”? Perhaps, but it’s charming all the same.

Check out our reviews for Baldur’s Gate 3 on PS5 and PC. It’s not quite the end for Larian’s masterpiece, which will receive more updates to improve performance and an Xbox Series X/S version later this year. Cross-play and Photo Mode are also coming, and director Swen Vincke revealed that DLC isn’t completely undoable, though there’s no solid confirmation on whether it’s happening.
