Baldur's Gate III has an official release date

It has finally happened. Larian has confirmed the release date for the most anticipated role-playing game to be released in recent years. Baldur's Gate III entered Early Access quite a while ago, and it rapidly became a best seller, even though it had a long way ahead of it in such a test phase. Since then, we have seen the addition of several classes, new mechanics, and a lot of new features. If you are one of those seasoned fans of the franchise that have been restraining yourself from immersing yourself in the Forgotten Realms universe once more until the final version of the game is ready, you won't have to wait much longer. The release of Baldur's Gate III is scheduled for August 31.

The announcement was a total surprise and it happened yesterday during Sony's latest State of Play. Yes, the game will launch on PlayStation 5 and PC. The video shown yesterday reveals many things about the game other than the release date. 



A part of the footage focuses on General Ketheric Thorm, one of the three main antagonists in Baldur's Gate III. Larian Studios Creative Director Swen Vincke has talked about him in a publication on the PlayStation Blog.

"Ketheric is a man with complex ambitions and motivations, so in searching for his voice, we knew we needed to work with a renowned character actor who could deliver the kind of nuanced performance we were looking for – so we decided to cast JK Simmons (Whiplash, Spider-Man)."
