Baldur's Gate 3 Grew Into a Terribly Long Game

We know how long it will take us to complete Baldur's Gate 3. We have to admit that Larian has prepared a lot of content.

Release of the full version of Baldur's Gate 3 is fast approaching - as it turned out yesterday, much bigger than we thought (the debut on PC was moved from August 31 to August 3, and on PS5 it was delayed to September 6.). So it's no surprise that the developers are revealing more information about the title. This time we learned the length of the entire adventure. It shows that we are in for a very long story.

The news comes from an interview that Swen Vincke, head of Larian Studios, gave to IGN. It shows that if we want to complete Baldur's Gate 3, we will need quite a lot of time.

  1. "Normal" playthrough, in which we simply want to get acquainted with the story, will take between 75 and 100 hours.
  2. If, on the other hand, one cares to see everything that the developers have prepared, one will have to spend up to 200 hours.

"There will be people who will want to do everything the game has to offer. I believe that such people will reach 200 hours. However, the average playthrough time will be between 75 and 100 hours.

These words show how much Baldur's Gate 3 has grown during the development. Three years ago Larian announced that the game could be completed in 40 hours. In the end, however, we will see a story twice as long.

Finally, I remind you that another broadcast of the Panel from Hell series has been announced for July 5. It will present the highlights waiting for us in the full version of the game, including the novelties revealed yesterday on the occasion of the release date change, such as playable half-orc and dracon races or Minsc and Jaheira appearing as party members.
