Baldur’s Gate 3 director and studio founder Swen Vincke explained that these changes are a result of the busy launch calendar in 2023. Vincke hopes that by shifting the release dates, fans have ample opportunities to enjoy the game.

The much-awaited sci-fi title Starfield, which is a direct competition to Baldur’s Gate 3, is scheduled to launch in Fall. Now that the PS5 version of Baldur’s Gate 3 is releasing on the same day as Starfield, there might be some reason to worry.

Larian Studios has revealed some exciting new information about the upcoming title. The developers will be adding new character creation options before the final launch. Gamers can choose from every option from the original Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Player’s Handbook.

Baldur’s Gate 3 will also feature the Monk class. This specific character wields light weapons, unarmed strikes, and ki to strive in the battlefield. Dungeons and Dragons fans can make use of the Monk abilities available in the game such as Deflect Missiles and Martial Arts.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has several new features, including many which were not available in Early Access. Classes will have access to upper-tier abilities, such as 6th-level spells from Dungeons and Dragons.
