Fresh off winning Game of the Year at the Game Awards; Baldur’s Gate 3 is out now on Xbox Series X|S! The long-awaited release of Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox is finally here, as the 96 Metacritic-rated RPG launches today at The Game Awards. Baldur’s Gate 3 was met with critical acclaim with its original PC launch on Aug. 3, 2023, and since its release for PlayStation 5 on Sept. 6, 2023, the game has seen over five major patches improving the experience well beyond its initial content.
Patch 5, the latest update, includes two new game modes: Honor and Custom. This content drop also expands upon the game’s ending, adding a playable epilogue that’s different for players depending on the choices they’ve made throughout their own personal adventure.

Or tangle with your inner corruption as the Dark Urge, a fully customizable Origin hero with its own unique mechanics and story. Whoever you choose to be, adventure, loot, battle and romance your way across the Forgotten Realms and beyond. Gather your friends and take the adventure online as a party of up to four.
Starting today, Xbox players can enjoy the complete experience with the benefit of every patch since launch, greatly enhancing the experience. Players on Xbox Series X can avail of split-screen co-op and online play; players on Xbox Series S can play cooperatively online.
