The Baldur's Gate 3 price has been revealed along with some new details about upcoming Early Access details. One new feature will be "some funky Twitch integration" in what is likely to be a lengthy, robust CRPG.
Baldur's Gate 3 is the hotly-anticipated CRPG from Larian Studios, continuing the company's fine tradition of making deep games with plenty of player choices. It was originally supposed to launch in Steam Early Access sometime in August 2020, but that release window got pushed back by one month.
Since then, the developers have given us some details about what's coming to this game in the phenomenal Panel From Hell featuring Geoff Keighley, and now we've learned a bit more including the Baldur's Gate 3 price and how Twitch Integration will work.
What is the Baldur's Gate 3 Price?
The Baldur's Gate 3 price will be $59.99 at launch in the US. Regional pricing has not yet been announced.
"Also, the [Baldur's Gate 3 price] will be $59.99," Larian's Director of Publishing Michael Douse explained in a tweet. Don't feel pressured to buy it during EA. It's not going to disappear, and neither are we."
Some other questions emerged, including regional pricing and how much Baldur's Gate 3 will cost on different platforms. Regional pricing will come at a later date, but we did get confirmation about how much it would cost on each platform.
"Pricing is pricing is pricing it doesn't change per platform," Douse added.
How Does Baldur's Gate 3 Twitch Integration Work?
The other surprising reveal today was a forthcoming Baldur's Gate 3 Twitch Integration feature. Simply put, this will let people watching a Twitch stream vote on things that are going on in the game.
"BG3 EA gonna launch with some funky Twitch integration that'll allow you to vote on certain things - bit like what we did in the Panel From Hell but all proper," Michael Douse said on Twitter.
As a reminder, the Panel From Hell showed a bit of live gameplay and the player had to make some choices at certain points. The panelists opted to ask for a vote on what the player should do during the live stream, so we'll probably see it work in a similar fashion in the live game.
Of course, Baldur's Gate 3 isn't just coming to PC — it's also arriving on Stadia, and that platform has a similar function called "Crowd Choice" that integrates with YouTube. Will there be Baldur's Gate 3 Crowd Choice?
"I can't comment on Crowd Choice, but we're working on a bunch of Stadia features to make best use of the platforms cool uniqueness," Michael Douse added in a Twitter reply. "Nobody will be left out."
However it turns out, Baldur's Gate 3 is shaping up to be a pretty cool new CRPG! You can find out more about this upcoming game and where to buy it at baldursgate3.game.
