Today’s “Community Update” from Larian Studios was all about Romance and Companionship. And of course there’s no better love story than the age-old tale of gaming platforms working together in beautiful harmony. I guess that’s why further on in the update, the team confirmed during a Q&A section that Baldur’s Gate 3 will support full cross-play between all platforms. This means Stadia players will be able to play with PC players.
I’m sure many of you are sighing in relief right now.
They go on to point out that during the Early Access period this cross-play may not work exactly correctly as different platforms may have different patches applied at different times, and cross-play will only work among players on the same version of the game. Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into another Marvel’s Avengers debacle with Stadia being left behind on an old version while other platforms get updates.
If I buy the game on GOG can I play with my friend who owns the game on Steam? How about if I play on PC and my friend plays on Stadia?
“Direct Connect” (yes) is possible between platforms - but all players must be on the same patch number in order for it to work. Note that in the first few weeks of Early Access there may be some minor version discrepancy between platforms as we move to fix and address issues rapidly, and in these cases you won’t be able to play between ‘stores’. Ultimately, you will.
Sadly we won’t get to experience the game for an additional week, as we found out yesterday the release has been delayed to Oct 6th.
