Baldur's Gate 3 is out now on Xbox Series X/S.

The Xbox version arrives after the PlayStation release in September and August debut on PC, and was delayed due to difficulties with split screen co-op on the less powerful Series S console.

That mode has been dropped to allow for an earlier release, but is still planned for a post-launch patch.

The release date was teased ahead of The Game Awards tonight and was finally announced on X, formerly Twitter, after the show.

Baldur's Gate 3 has received plenty of updates since its initial launch, not least of all a brand new epilogue to tie up the story, as well as a permadeath mode.

Earlier this week, Larian released some player stats for the game: 1.3 million players have finished the game's campaign, with 15.9 percent of all playtime spent in the character creator.

Our Eurogamer Baldur's Gate 3 review praised the game's "excellent stagecraft and meticulous detail", while acknowledging some performance issues in its final act - much of which has since been improved in patches.
