Baldur’s Gate 3 Passes Elden Ring as The Highest-Rated PS5 Game Yet

Baldur’s Gate 3, the acclaimed RPG from developer Larian Studios, launched on PS5 yesterday after initially releasing on PC back in early August. Reviews for the PS5 version have started pouring in and so far, the game has surpassed the Metacritic score of From Software’s award-winning RPG Elden Ring as the highest-rated PS5 game yet.

As reported by Video Games Chronicle, Baldur’s Gate 3 is now the highest-rated PS5 game on both Metacritic and OpenCritic with a score of 97 (one above Elden Ring‘s score of 96 on Metacritic). However, that only accounts for a few reviews published so far so it’s possible that the score could fluctuate lower or higher when more reviews start to roll in.

On OpenCritic, Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently tied at 96 with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. That said, Larian’s RPG has a higher recommendation from critics at 100% compared to Tears of the Kingdom‘s 97%, giving it the slight edge. Either way, it’s currently the highest-rated video game of the year so far and seems set to sweep up awards at The Game Awards this December.

Larian Studios recently detailed the changes players can expect on the PS5 version of Baldur’s Gate 3 compared to the PC version, which includes a radial wheel for easy access to items, spells and actions as well as a third-person perspective that can be toggled on or off if you wish to play with the traditional point-and-click movement system. Larian Studios also released a new hotfix recently that added a bunch of new dialogue options to Minthara as a romance partner.

In other news, Larian is working to fix a strange bug that caused companions to be a bit too horny early in the game, prompting dialogue options that seemed bizarrely sexual – sometimes even moments after you first meet them.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently available for PC and PS5. An Xbox version is on its way sometime before the end of the year too.
