Early Access will cover the game's first act, which Larian Studios claim spans around 25 hours of gameplay. They have stated before that there are multiple ways to progress through Act 1, further adding to replayability before it is released in full.

Baldur's Gate 3 has yet to receive a firm release date, but it looks to uphold the legendary reputation of the classic CRPG series and promises to be one of the most flexible entries to the genre yet. Check out its early access beginning October 6.
