This page of our Baldur's Gate 3 guide contains information regarding Early Access. You will learn when the game will make its debut in Early Access, how long will the game last, and its size compared to DoS2.
Baldur's Gate 3's Early Access release on Steam was rescheduled for October 6 of this year. The released version features Act 1 of the game's story campaign. The game will receive improvements and polish as the time passes. This means that we will see cutscenes and hear the audio in the dialogue. Act 1 is supposed to last 20-25 hours of play.
Compared to the Early Access of the previous game of the studio (Divinity: Original Sin 2) - Baldur's Gate 3 will offer much more content. During the adventure we will see more characters, we will fight more battles and have access to a greater range of abilities. As of right now, BG3 will be three times the size of DoS2 when the latter debuted in Early Access.
The developers have also announced that Baldur's Gate 3 will be less linear than their previous game. This means that decisions made during the game will be important and can significantly change the course of the game.
