Released in August, Baldur’s Gate 3 has proven a smash-hit with fans and critics alike. In the game, players create or choose a character from one of the classic Dungeons & Dragons classes and races and sets them on a journey in which they can recruit all of the above characters to their cause after they’re infected with an illithid tadpole. Illithids are, of course, also known as mind flayers, and they’re a species that often enslaves and dominates others. And that’s all I’ll spoil for you about the immersive, choice-based RPG.

At the time of writing, both the PC and the PlayStation 5 versions of Baldur’s Gate 3 have an astonishing 96. Due in large part to that positive response, Baldur’s Gate 3 has remained high on the sales charts of such platforms as Steam, selling millions of copies in the process.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has not released on Xbox Series X/S. However, when the game does make it to that console, the Series S version will not feature split-screen co-op, at least initially. Otherwise, you can play Baldur’s Gate 3  on PC or PlayStation 5 now — and I highly recommend you do, because it’s one of the best games this year.
