But before we do that, we need to choose our classes, right?

Baldur’s Gate 3 emerges from early access with a full release in August

Baldur’s Gate 3 is a game that I’ve been waiting for a long time. I was a fan of the previous games in the series, and I was curious to see how Larian Studios would handle the transition to a new engine and a new edition of Dungeons & Dragons. I decided to give the early access a try, and I have to say, I’m impressed. The game is gorgeous, the combat is challenging and fun, the story is intriguing, and the characters are memorable. I love how the game lets you create your own custom character, or choose from one of the six origin characters, each with their own backstory and personality.

The game also gives you a lot of freedom to explore the world, interact with NPCs, and make choices that affect the outcome of the story. The game is not without its flaws, though. It’s still in early access, so there are bugs, glitches, and unfinished features. The game can also be quite difficult at times, especially if you’re not familiar with the rules of D&D. The game also has some controversial elements, such as the use of mind flayers, tadpoles, and ceremorphosis, which may not appeal to everyone. Overall, though, I think Baldur’s Gate 3 is a great game that has a lot of potential. I can’t wait to see how it evolves and improves over time.

If you want to learn more about classes, there is a breakdown provided by DEVS in the GameSpot video below:

Multiclassing will be a thing?

The inclusion of multiclassing in Baldur’s Gate 3 remains uncertain. Larian Studios has previously discussed the topic, mentioning that the multiclassing rules would closely follow the 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) rules. According to their statement, characters would have the option to either continue with their current class or select a new one during level-up, provided they meet the prerequisites. However, there haven’t been any recent updates regarding multiclassing, and it’s possible that it may be introduced as a post-release feature.

In addition to classes, Baldur’s Gate 3 offers players the opportunity to shape their playthrough by selecting three significant character attributes: Race, Origin, and Background. These choices will have an impact on your personal story and how other characters in the game perceive and interact with you.
