Fans of discs, boxes, and the occasional manual, rejoice: Larian Studios is set to officially confirm a physical version for Baldur's Gate 3 this week. Having been teased by the studio's director of publishing Michael Douse, the official Twitter account for the developer said this is going to be a busy week for "fans of physical media" and Xbox owners. The tease heavily suggests an overall physical version for the RPG will be announced alongside an Xbox Series X|S release date.
Baldur's Gate 3 and Alan Wake 2 have been two high-profile AAA releases without a physical version at launch, instead opting for a digital edition on the PS Store. The former now looks like it'll be stocked on store shelves and at online retailers, but there's no word out of Remedy about the possibility of its situation changing yet. The news was shared via a post highlighting the eight nominations the RPG has received at next month's The Game Awards. To see it, you'll need to click the "Show More" option on the tweet below.
Baldur's Gate 3 was one of a few PS5 titles to receive a rare 10/10 review score from us this year, as we considered it "one of the greatest RPGs of our time".
