- Larian Studios’ love for D&D shines through in Baldur’s Gate 3, creating one of the greatest RPGs ever made.
Baldur’s Gate 3 has officially launched, and it may be the closest that gaming has ever gotten to a true Dungeons and Dragons experience. Every corner of the world is beautiful, the combat is exhilarating, there are countless charismatic characters with interesting stories waiting to be told, and everything is built around the core D&D experience. It is both exciting for fans of the tabletop game and great for newcomers who may have never touched the game before. All of this has helped create one of the greatest RPGs ever made, and Larian Studios’ love for D&D has made the experience even better.
Baldur’s Gate 3 feels like a love letter to Dungeons and Dragons, and that is very apparent when looking at the bonus material that comes with the digital deluxe edition. Not only do players get various cosmetic goodies and a fantastic soundtrack, but the studio has also thrown in actual character sheets and dice skins. While some players may never look at this extra material, fans of Dungeons and Dragons will definitely want to take a look at these items.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Is Exactly What Dungeons and Dragons Fans Want
From the minute Baldur’s Gate 3 begins, players know they are in good hands. They are not only thrust into the world of Dungeons and Dragons right away with the appearance of dragons and a Mind Flayer but Baldur’s Gate 3‘s character creator is also built around the core D&D rules. Players must choose their race from a list of common D&D races, they must select their core stats, and build their class like they would in an actual tabletop session. Once that is done, they are thrown into a game with a combat system ripped straight from the pages of Dungeons and Dragons and filled with dice rolls that can significantly alter the direction of any situation.
It feels almost exactly like an actual Dungeons and Dragons campaign, and that leads to a fantastic experience. Players will likely sink days into exploring every single corner of this world, and Dungeons and Dragons fans will be able to pick up on pretty much every single Easter egg that Larian has put into the game. The game also includes iconic locations from the Emerald Grove and the Underdark to Baldur’s Gate itself, and that should bring a smile to any D&D fan’s face.
All the D&D stuff in Baldur’s Gate 3 is great to see, but Larian Studios did not stop there. The studio seems to be very passionate about the tabletop game, and that is especially apparent when players look at the various digital goodies it included in the digital deluxe edition. Anyone who pre-ordered Baldur’s Gate 3 or played it during the early access period was able to get this edition at no additional charge, and D&D fans will definitely want to check it out between their adventures.
Baldur’s Gate 3‘s digital deluxe edition not only includes the game but also a plethora of fun things to look at. While the 97-page artbook and original soundtrack are cool, the best item comes in the form of the character sheets that Larian Studios included. The studio created full character sheets for each origin character that seem ready for an actual Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Everything that players would need is included, each character starts at level one, the sheets have a unique art style, and the fact that Larian included them makes this entire package even better for fans of the tabletop game.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now on PC, with a PS5 release on September 6 and an Xbox launch to follow.
