During the Baldurs Gate III Panel from Hell, it was announced that Baldurs Gate 3 is coming September 30th to Stadia and PC. This was a highly anticipated talk within the Stadia community and it did not let people down. We received a lot of interesting information from the talk and also received new trailers for the game.
When early access launches there will be 5 launch characters. These are: Astarion (Elf/Vampire Rogue), Gale (Human Wizard), Lae’zel (Githyanki Warrior), Shadowheart (Half-Elf Cleric) and Wyll (Human Warlock). There will also be a split-screen multiplayer but not at launch. There will also be cross-platform multiplayer but we are not sure if that will be there at Early Access Launch.
