Larian Studios shared the launch trailer for the Early Access version of Baldur’s Gate III, the latest instalment in the legendary series. For the moment, the game features the first act (around 20-25 hours of gameplay), with performance captured dialogues and cut-scenes, voice-overs for most dialogues, multiplayer (but no split-screen for now), several translations available.
Character creation allows players to make a choice of race, subrace, background and class. In certain cases, you also get to choose a subclass and even a deity. These choices will ripple out across the story, affecting how you roleplay throughout the game.
The team rolled out the first hotfix, aimed at addressing a number of issues reported by the Early Access players:
- Fixed a crash related to using rush-type actions
- Fixed a crash related to the target camera
- Fixed a crash in character creation
- Fixed a crash during dialogs
- Fixed overlapping items inside the inventory views
- Fixed “Pickup” and “Pickup And Add To Wares” inside containers
- Fixed a player assignment issue when someone would leave from a full multiplayer party. The leftover character can now be assigned correctly.
- Fixed an issue with summons showing up as regular companions
- Fixed an issue where players could not ready up when other players joined the lobby
- Fixed being able to move immovable objects
