Here’s What You Need to Know About Cross-Platform Support For Baldur’s Gate 3

Baldur’s Gate 3 doesn’t currently support crossplay, which means console players can’t team up with PC players. However, developer Larian Studios has plans to implement cross-platform support, as reported by Eurogamer. It’s part of their roadmap going forward, meaning that unless something goes horribly wrong, it’s going to happen. However, there’s no date for crossplay, or even a year.

Is it worth waiting for crossplay to happen? Probably not. Often, when a game gets a physical release, online and brick-and-mortar sellers will drop the price eventually. It may take a month, a few months, maybe even a year, but you can save big by waiting. As BG3 is only available digitally, though, the price will be set between Larian and the platform holder. And, believe me, BG3 is a real gem of an RPG, so it’s worth playing right now.

So, the answer to does Baldur’s Gate 3 have crossplay is no, but it’s in the works. And if you want to find out if it supports cross-platform saves, we have the answer here. If you’re looking for more about the game, be sure to check out our full range of coverage.
