Baldur's Gate 3 has been out for three months now, and developer Larian has published some mind-bending player statistics to celebrate. As you may already know, this is a big RPG, featuring god-knows how many unique paths through its story — and so these stats make for especially interesting reading if you're familiar with the game.
We've gone ahead and compiled the craziest stats into the following list:
- 1.3 million players have completed the game (which is honestly astonishing considering its overall length)
- A whopping 94% of players created a custom character instead of playing as one of the game's premade cast
- Of the small percentage of players who actually chose to play as a premade character, Gale is most popular, followed by Astarion, Karlach, Shadowheart, Wyll, and Lae'zel in that order
- A combined 8,196 years have been spent in the character creator (picking a class is hard, picking a hairstyle is harder)
- Paladin is the most popular class, followed by sorcerer, fighter, rogue, barbarian, warlock, wizard, bard, druid, monk, ranger, and cleric, in that order
- Elf is the most popular race, followed by human, half-elf, tiefling, drow, dragonborn, half-orc, githyanki, dwarf, gnome, and halfling, in that order
- Shadowheart is the most popular romantic interest with 51% of players reaching the end of her romance arc, followed by Karlach and then Lae'zel
- When presented with the choice, 66% of players have asked Halsin to not be in his, er... bear form for that particularly popular romance scene
- Players have spent a combined 51,662 years playing Baldur's Gate 3
