It's impossible to get away from the huge success that is Baldur's Gate 3 at the moment! It's now been exactly a week since the game launched on Steam, and it's since wracked up over 65,000 ratings leading to an "Overwhelmingly Positive" score, while the critics' impressions have resulted in an unprecedented 97 rating on Metacritic.
That score of 97 makes Baldur's Gate 3 the highest-rated video game of 2023 on the website, beating the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom (96), Metroid Prime Remastered (94) and Resident Evil 4 (93).
Despite what some might be saying on social media, we will see Baldur's Gate 3 on Xbox eventually, but we'll probably be waiting until 2024 for it. The team at Larian Studios is still trying to work around technical hurdles with the Xbox Series S version in order to achieve feature parity, with an update expected to be shared by the end of the year.
That's obviously the bad news, but the good news is that whenever it does arrive, Xbox fans are in for an absolute treat with Baldur's Gate 3 across Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S! It's going to feel like a very long wait until then...
