Following a night of sweeping awards at The Game Awards that saw it win nearly every category it was nominated for, including the big prize of Game of the Year, Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate III has now arrived on the Xbox Series X/S. The title is only available digitally, as a physical deluxe edition is set for early next year, and is priced at $69.99 though a $79.99 edition that contains some digital bonuses is also available. This release follows the game’s full release on PC back in early August and the title’s arrival on the PlayStation 5 in early September.
It is worth noting that, unlike most games, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S versions are slightly different. While both versions of the Xbox console will be able to enjoy the massive RPG with all of the various patches and updates Larian has made since release as well as use cross-save between their PC copies and Xbox copies, only the Xbox Series X version will allow players to play with split-screen co-op as the function is not available on the Series S. The ability to play online co-op remains on both consoles untouched.
With multiple awards won and reviewing glowingly nearly everywhere, Larian Studios have also released an accolades trailer which can be found below.
