Baldur’s Gate 3 was originally targeting a launch on September 30th for early access on PC and Google Stadia. Unfortunately, stability issues and some delays to translations have resulted in the release being pushed back. Larian Studios has now announced a release date of October 6th for early access.

The overall principle behind launching on early access is to ensure that it offers a “fun gameplay experience with as few crashes as possible.” Localization is also important as the developer wants to ensure that the languages announced for early access are “strong enough for our international fans to have a good time.” Currently, the game is being stress-tested by an AI-driven “World Tester” and while the results are looking good, they’re not quite perfect.

Regardless, Larian Studios is confident of launching Baldur’s Gate 3 a week later. Minimum PC requirements for day 1 of the launch have also been revealed, which you can check out below. These will likely decrease over the course of early access but should provide a good idea of what to expect at launch. The developer also confirmed an update on romances and companionship so check back later for more details.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel i5-4690 / AMD FX 4350
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 / AMD Radeon R9 280X
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 70 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Default API is Vulkan 1.1. Directx11 API also provided. The minimum requirements might decrease over the course of Early Access, as performance improves.
