Baldur’s Gate III Promises Impressive 100-hour Gameplay Experience

The much-anticipated Baldur's Gate III, developed by Larian Studios, plans to offer a whopping 100-hour playthrough for a normal quest run. Announcing this, the creators have hinted at an immersive gaming experience with a vast storyline that can’t be hurried through.

Based on the input from Swen Vincke, CEO of Larian Studios, Baldur's Gate III's main storyline and a few side quests will take as much as a traditional workweek to complete. This estimate is made considering the normal difficulty setting. The length of the play-through strongly suggests a grand and complex storyline for the players to live through.

Mechanics-wise, the game will require players to invest a good amount of time in the game's strategic turn-based combat. Along with this, the interaction between characters using decision-based dialogue also contributes a lot to the overall time of a play-through, similar to traditional Role-Playing Games (RPGs).

However, the game's length isn't the sole marker of its appeal. Larian Studios' commendable reputation for well-woven plotlines and innovative world-building capabilities adds to its allure. The game developers have ensured to create an immersive and visually stunning environment that captivates the players' imagination and encourages exploration and discovery.

Despite the long playthrough time, Baldur's Gate III promises to keep players gripped with its fascinating storyline, immersive gameplay mechanics, and rich world-building. Larian Studios seems to have put ample thought and effort in building a game that sets it apart in the realm of RPGs, proving that great things, indeed do take time.
