Baldur’s Gate 3 was the most anticipated RPG of the year and is likely to be one of the top contenders for the GOTY 2023, alongside Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The game was released last month on PC (Steam) after a period in early access, and now, today, it is available on PS5 (Xbox users will have to wait a bit longer). Larian’s game is a behemoth that ranks among the cutting edge of the genre, and technical performance is one of the aspects that concerns players the most, especially on consoles.
As expected, we now have the first graphical comparisons of the game between PS5 and PC, like this one courtesy of El Analista de Bits on YouTube. Below, we’ll tell you what the game is like on console and whether it’s worth it, but first, let’s review the two graphical modes of Baldur’s Gate 3 on PS5.
The truth is, yes, as the YouTuber mentioned. However, the performance is not perfect, and the performance mode aims for 60 FPS but doesn’t always maintain them, although the video highlights that it doesn’t suffer from significant drops that would hinder gameplay. In terms of graphical settings, both modes are similar and roughly equivalent to a configuration with settings between medium and high on PC.
For months, the release date of Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox Series X|S has been a mystery because Larian was working on resolving certain technical issues related to the inclusion of split-screen cooperative mode on Xbox Series S. Finally, users of Microsoft’s console have good news, as it will be released much sooner than we thought.
