On both PS5 and Xbox, the game will be playable on disc, with the PS5 version sporting two discs, and Xbox a whopping three discs to house the chonky epic. On PC, a DVD hosts a custom installer and arrives with a Steam key.
“This experiment is what we feel the future of physical media looks like, at least for us at Larian,” said Michael Douse, Director of Publishing at Larian. “We spent the last few months learning how to do it from scratch and put everything we learned from the Collector’s Edition into what we hope is unbeatable value for what we’re considering our standard physical version going forward. If it works out, we’ll keep doing it this way. We understand the value of physical media, and while there are clearly increasingly significant challenges when it comes to the archiving of games, we truly believe it’s worth experimenting, even if it means a fuck-ton of discs.”
Baldur’s Gate 3: Deluxe Edition will be sold exclusively by and restocked on Larian’s dedicated store. It is not a Collector’s Edition, so players needn’t panic if they lose out on the initial batch.
While each version of the Deluxe Edition is scheduled to ship in Q1 of 2024, Larian notes that the release date for the long-awaited Xbox digital version of Baldur’s Gate 3 will be revealed at The Game Awards on December 7.
