Baldur’s Gate 3 is entering early access on September 30. Developer Larian announced the date as part of a livestream today. As with Divinity Original Sin 2, early access players will get to try out the game’s first act. Difference is, BG3's first act is much larger than DOS2's. It’ll last around 25 hours, with more than 80 possible combat scenarios (versus DOS2's 25).

I don’t believe in paying to beta test. Considering the length of the game will probably be something like 80-100 hours, I’ll definitely wait for the 1.0. I want my first experience to be the full experience.
