After Larian Studios took home the top prize of the evening, the shadows fell away Baldur's Gate 3 on Xbox SeriesBaldur's Gate 3 is now available for Xbox Series X|S; Start your adventure today!”

Larian Studios' highly anticipated Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game was originally released on August 3 for Mac and Windows PC, before coming to PlayStation 5 in early September. But an Xbox Series X version of Baldur's Gate 3 was postponed due to Larian Studios' failure to get the game's split-screen cooperative play mode working on Microsoft's Xbox Series S, the lower-spec Xbox console. Microsoft demands that games be the same on both current-generation consoles, but seems to have made a concession on that Baldur's Gate 3. And it makes sense: Baldur's Gate 3 is one of the best games of 2023, and Xbox – and its players – are missing out.

More than 1.3 million people have completed this Baldur's Gate 3 in the months since release, and that number will increase dramatically once Xbox players get started. It's good timing, too: In November, Larian's massive new update added playable epilogues with “some of the most complex writing in the game yet,” along with new ways to play the game, including a hardcore setting called Honor Fashion.
