The Summer's most hotly anticipated game release, Baldur's Gate 3, is playable from August 3. The game's minimum- and recommended system requirements lists have been put out by its developer Larian Studios. We're happy to report that as expected, Baldur's Gate is light on the system requirements, to cater to as broad an audience as Diablo 3, the Spring's hottest RPG release.

Perhaps the steepest system requirement of Baldur's Gate is its disk space. The game calls for 150 GB of SSD storage space, which means it will be packed to the gills with content. The rest of the specs should please you. The minimum system requirements ask for an Intel Core i5-4690 or AMD FX 8350 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon RX 480 graphics card, and Windows 10; so a 10-year old PC should meet the specs. The recommended requirements talk of either an Intel Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and either an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card—so a 4-year old rig should be enough to max out the game.

I only hope the bugs are ironed out. When I got the game (2 years ago was it?) it has had a damn a lot of those but the plot and the game itself was really good. I guess it is time to play now :)
The requirements are very low. They must have fixed the FPS dips since I had those frequently at 4k.

"...to cater to as broad an audience as Diablo 3, the Spring's hottest RPG release" Spring 2015 maybe. I think you mean Diablo 4.

Be best played with your wife\GF, or at least 2 people in the same room.

Guess who got burned a lot in DOS1\2 ^^. I just hope the AI don't cheat as much as they did late DOS2.

Discord works well bery well, too. A friend and I have put 100 hours into early access and done everything that early access has to offer. At least for the first act, it seems very polished. Lots of replay value I think.

I'm also not surprised about the storage space requirements. They have an enormous amount of cutscenes created. Gotta put that somewhere

Hundreds of hours into multiple playthroughs with so many different builds in DOS2 with my brother in coop and every now and then we'd come across a conversation option or story line we had never seen before. Here's hoping BG3 has a similar world with massive reliability to it. We're anxiously awaiting the official release before we dive into it.

I love the divinity original sin 2 game. Damn I played so many times. Funny thing is, never finished. I always lack of time or i dont play for a while (got a newborn 6month now) and when i dont, I feel like starting over is the right choice. :) I need to try Multi player maybe. That might be fun but considering my free time it is better to play single player. I'm gonna end up starting over anyway.

It's just more of what they are good at.
