Baldur’s Gate 3 is now officially live on Steam in early access, as of October 6, 2020, at 1:00 pm ET. It’s time to gather your party and make your way back to the Forgotten Realms. There are no pre-loads for this game, so you’ll have to download the entire game after purchasing it.
The estimated file size for Baldur’s Gate 3 is around 150 GB, so ensure you have enough space available before downloading. So far, we know the following races will be in the game: humans, elves, githyanki, drow, half-elf, dwarves, halflings, and tieflings. In addition to each race, there are subraces to choose from as well.
Upon hopping into the game, you’ll have the option to pick from 150 head models, scanned from real actors’ faces. You can then choose between six classes on the first day of early access, including Cleric, Fighter, Ranger, Rogue, Warlock, and Wizard. Each class also includes a minimum of two subclasses.
