Baldur’s Gate 3 PS5 Preload and Early Access Details Announced Play4ever

Larian Studios has revealed the preload times and release schedule for the PS5 version of Baldur’s Gate 3, ahead of its full PlayStation release on Sept. 6 early next month.

Per a post on X (formerly known as Twitter) from Larian Studios, players who have payed for the $79.99 Digital Deluxe Edition of Baldur’s Gate 3 will be able to begin preloading the game on Aug. 31 starting at 16:00 UTC, and will be able to jump into the game at the same time on Sept. 2 courtesy of early access.

Meanwhile, those who have pre-ordered the $69.99 Standard Edition of Baldur’s Gate 3 will be able to begin preloading starting at 16:00 UTC on Sept. 4, in preparation of the RPG’s full PS5 release on Sept. 6, once again at 16:00 UTC.

Back in July, Larian revealed that players would not be able to preload any of the 122 GB PC version of Baldur’s Gate 3 – a decision which upset some players with less than stellar internet, and saw Steam struggle to cope with the download demand for the game.

Thankfully, Larian has been able to enable preloading for the PS5 version of the game, so PlayStation gamers should have a smoother ride of it. The PC version of Baldur’s Gate 3 has been out in the wild for a couple of weeks now, and in that time it has delighted hardcore and casual RPG fans alike, while securing its place in history as one of the horniest titles ever to grace gamers’ collective screens.

As a matter of fact, Baldur’s Gate 3 players managed to get up to so much so fast that Larian was forced to push out an emergency hotfix for the game to expand player’s personal story database to an “infinite” size in order to allow them to continue perpetrating shenanigans. Since then, some members of the Baldur’s Gate 3 community have gone even further in their attempts to explore the game, with some even now competing for numerous speed run records.
