Back in 2019, Larian announced it was working on Baldur’s Gate 3. Since then the game has entered Early Access where it launched with 16 playable races and six classes. After Nick spent some time with Baldur’s Gate 3, he wrote:

While it’s rough and ready, I have to say I’m really enthralled by the experience so far. Baldur’s Gate 3 has tons of depth and enjoyable enough gameplay that I’m willing to look past the bugs of early access. It was quite frustrating at times but still forgivable. The good experiences were more than enough to make up for the bugs and these will only improve over time, making BG3 one of the best in-depth RPGs in a long while. Things can only improve from here on out and I can’t wait to see what comes in chapter 2.
