Will Baldur’s Gate 3 Have Crossplay?

Baldur’s Gate 3 is coming to PlayStation 5 next month, and crossplay will play a huge role in the success of the platform.

One of the key reasons behind the success of crossplay is its capacity to unite players from various platforms, forming a more expansive online gaming community. The feature is becoming increasingly popular as more games have embraced the feature. However, many are curious if Baldur’s Gate 3 will follow the trend.

Does Baldur’s Gate 3 Have Crossplay?

Unfortunately, it seems as though crossplay will be unavailable in Baldur’s Gate 3. This means those playing on either PC or PlayStation 5 will only be able to continue playing on their respective platforms. The decision to exclude crossplay is quite interesting as BG3 would greatly benefit from having a connected online community.

While it seems still like a possibility that the feature could come later in an update, players should heed their expectations until any official development is given by Larian Studios. However, with the game only rising in popularity, many should not have to about the online player base.

Why is Crossplay so Important?

Crossplay is an incredibly important feature in modern games and allows people on different platforms to play together. Furthermore, cross-progression is another aspect tied to crossplay and lets players play on one platform and continue their progress on another.

Both of these features are becoming increasingly popular in modern games, with titles such as Modern Warfare 3 and XDefiant providing these options. As multiplayer games release, we can expect them to accommodate crossplay.

What is Baldur’s Gate 3?

Baldur’s Gate 3 is the newest iteration in the role-playing games series, set within the universe of Dungeons and Dragons. Developed by Belgian game developer, Larian Studios, BG3 is a massive stand-out due to its narrative and primary game mechanics. The game revolves around using a dice system that determines many different factors such as combat encounters.

The game features romance options, many different classes and subclasses to play as, and big story acts to journey through. In essence, the title is comparable to a playable digital version of Dungeons and Dragons and it is bringing in new fans as time goes on. As the buzz around the game continues to grow, with over 94% of its 185,000 reviews on Steam being very positive, many PlayStation fans are anxious to experience the game.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now for PC and releases on September 6, 2023, for PlayStation 5.
