Baldur’s Gate 3 is out now on Xbox Series X/S.
The Xbox version arrives after the PlayStation release in September and August debut on PC, and was delayed due to difficulties with split screen co-op on the less powerful Series S console.
That mode has been dropped to allow for an earlier release, but is still planned for a post-launch patch.
The release date was teased ahead of The Game Awards tonight and was finally announced on X, formerly Twitter, after the show.
Earlier this week, Larian released some player stats for the game: 1.3 million players have finished the game’s campaign, with 15.9 percent of all playtime spent in the character creator.
Our Eurogamer Baldur’s Gate 3 review praised the game’s “excellent stagecraft and meticulous detail”, while acknowledging some performance issues in its final act – much of which has since been improved in patches.
