Baldur's Gate 3's Rare Price Drop: Here's Why You Shouldn't Wait

When Baldur's Gate 3 launched last summer, few anticipated the sweeping success it would achieve. Larian's immersive RPG quickly captured the hearts of gamers worldwide. Interestingly, the release date was moved up to avoid clashing with Starfield. In retrospect, it seems Baldur's Gate 3 had nothing to worry about. If you missed out on experiencing 2023's Game of the Year, now is your chance to jump in as the game is on sale.

Steam's weekend sale has slashed the price of Baldur's Gate 3 down to $50.99 from its usual $60. While a $9 discount might not sound monumental, it's significant for a game as popular as this one. Historically, top-tier games like Baldur's Gate 3 rarely see price drops. According to PC Gamer, this is the lowest price the game has ever been offered on Steam. But be quick, as this deal is fleeting and could disappear any moment.

If you're contemplating whether this is the right moment to dive into Baldur's Gate 3, consider this your nudge. The game is a sprawling epic that can easily consume tens, if not hundreds, of hours of your time. You'll find yourself engrossed in its rich narrative, complex characters, and sprawling world. Even when you're not playing, thoughts of its colorful cast will linger in your mind, making you eager to return.

It's worth noting that this sale seems exclusive to Steam, so console players might have to wait a bit longer for a similar deal. For those already immersed in the game and craving more, or if you prefer a physical copy, the deluxe edition is still available. These editions are starting to ship now, which is good news for those who ordered the deluxe edition six months ago and have been eagerly waiting.

The long wait between Baldur's Gate 2 and Baldur's Gate 3 spanned 23 years, and there's no telling how long we'll wait for the next installment. Larian has revealed that while it’s working on new projects, it won’t be involved in the next Baldur's Gate game. This raises questions about the future quality of the series. But for now, don't miss out on this rare opportunity to snag Baldur's Gate 3 at its lowest price. Dive in and let this epic adventure take over your life.
