Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition has been officially revealed by Larian Studios, a bundle that comes packed with bonus content alongside a physical disc copy of the game.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition brings a physical game copy for your chosen platform and an array of what Larian refers to as “physical feelies”. These extras and bonus materials encompass:
- a collection of the game’s soundtrack on CD
- a cloth world map
- a poster
- two fabric patches
- 32 stickers.
Additionally, it includes a substantial box designed in the style of the original series. Moreover, it includes all the digital bonuses typically found in the existing Digital Deluxe version.
The Baldur’s Gate 3: Deluxe Edition is currently available for pre-order. The official product page states that it is set to be shipped for all platforms in the first quarter of 2024 and can be pre-ordered on Larian’s website for $79.99 / €79.99.
It’s important to note that the Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe edition is a great deal for the ones wanting to have the physical copy of the game, especially in terms of discs, as this edition includes two discs for PS5 and three for Xbox Series X and S, along with an additional three discs for the CD soundtrack.
On consoles, the game is entirely playable directly from the discs. On PC, you’ll receive a DVD, which serves as a custom installer to assist in redeeming a Steam key.
Though the stickers and patches seem decent enough, they probably won’t make much of an impression. Even if they include well-known artwork, they’re still just a cheap strategy to stuff content. The Mind Flayer poster and the intricate global map, on the other hand, have stunning artwork and are valuable pieces to acquire and display. Also, having all three hard discs of the music will also be a valuable exhibit, because CD compilations have become considerably more common in recent years.
Previously, there was a larger Collector’s Edition package for Baldur’s Gate 3, which, while containing various physical items, did not include the game itself on a disc – it only provided a download code for PS5 or PC.
