Baldur's Gate 3 has finally left early access and is now fully available for PC, and Larian Studios is celebrating with a launch trailer.

This marks the return of an absolutely legendary franchise after 22 years, considering that BioWare launched Baldur's Gate 2's expansion Throne of Bhaal in June 2001. 

It's worth mentioning that, if you've already played the early access, Larian advises deleting all save games (which aren't compatible with the release version anyway), uninstalling the game, and fully reinstalling it to avoid issues.

This means that you have a sizable 100 gigabytes download ahead of you. The full game will take approximately 126 gigabytes of your storage (installing on an SSD is strongly suggested). 

You can check out the trailer and get a glimpse of what awaits you below. 

While Baldur's Gate 3 is now available for PC, fans on consoles won't be left out forever. Those planning to play on PS5 will have to wait a bit longer, until September 7. 

Larian has also previously mentioned that it isn't a console exclusive to Sony's platform and an Xbox version is in the works, albeit it's taking time to solve some technical hurdles. They hope to have more news by the end of the year.

The game has been in early access for quite some time on PC and is bringing the Forgotten Realms setting back to video games. The development was initially partnered with Google Stadia and was supposed to launch on the cloud service before its predictable flop and closure. 

If you'd like to see more of Baldur's Gate 3, you can take a look at the previous gameplay including a rather... intimate and beastly encounter, a trailer mostly focusing on romanceanother trailer and footage from the PC Gaming Show, alongside plenty of information shared with the release date.
