Baldur’s Gate 3 Early Access release date and PC system requirements

Larian Studios have revealed a new Baldur's Gate 3 release date, alongside PC system requirements for Steam Early Access.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Early Access release date and PC system requirements

Earlier this month, developer Larian Studios announced the highly-anticipated Baldur's Gate 3 would be delayed out of the initial August 2020 release date window. Now, the developer has revealed the new Baldur's Gate release date, alongside some hefty PC system requirements.

 

Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access release date

The new Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access release date for Steam is now set for 30th September 2020. Keep in mind this isn't the full release of the game but it does allow PC gamers on Steam to get a big taste of what's to come.

In fact, there will be roughly 20 hours of content in the Early Access release. There will be several race and class options in the Early Access version for players to try out.

 

 

According to the developer, players will be capped at level four in the Early Access build of Baldur's Gate 3. At least now, we can mark our calendars for the Baldur's Gate 3 release date of 30th September. 

 

 

Baldur's Gate 3 PC system requirements

The Baldur's Gate 3 PC system requirements for Early Access on Steam look quite hefty, with at least an i5-4690 or an AMD FX 4350 to run the game. However, if you do have a decent gaming PC, you should at least be able to meet the minimum requirements.
