Baldur’s Gate 3 PC requirements for Early Access released

Baldur’s Gate 3 PC requirements

Developer Larian Studios has announced the PC requirements for Early Access of Baldur’s Gate 3. The game has a ton of systems going on, and it only looks like it’s getting more complex over time. There are romance options aplenty, if you’re into that sort of thing. There will be a huge story playing out across dozens of encounters and new areas, all with classic D&D combat. There’s so much more we can’t begin to cover here.

Watch the full Panel from Hell where most of this was revealed down below.

We can expect more news about the RPG over the coming months as development progresses. But for now, we finally have the Baldur’s Gate 3 PC requirements to let us know if your gaming rig can handle this beast.

Looking at the specs, it seems pretty simple to run with a modern rig. An RX580 or basic 1060 is a relatively cheap GPU, and should be able to run this game no problem at 1080p, targeting 60 FPS. A newer Ryzen will have no problem, as will a newer Intel CPU, as the game only needs a first-gen Ryzen or 2013-era Haswell CPU to handle the game at its best. The game will be relatively simple to run even if you have older hardware, just expect less graphical fidelity and a 30 FPS experience if you’re running something like an RX560 or old FX-era AMD CPU.

Overall it looks like there are some improvements to be made over time to the game, as one would expect from an Early Access title. So it’s important to remember that these specs could change upon release, and we should all expect better performance and fewer crashes as the game develops. These additions will likely lead to better visuals as well.
