Baldur's Gate 3 has been in early access for more than two years, but that period will finally end next year. During The Game Awards, Larian Studios announced that Baldur's Gate 3 will officially launch in August 2023, and the news came with a new trailer and a look at the game's enormous collector's edition.

The trailer for the game gives us a look at the titular Baldur's Gate city, as well as the return of the characters Minsc and Jaheira. It has been more than two decades since fans have seen them, which in video game industry time is practically 200 years.
