Baldur’s Gate 3 became the 3rd highest-selling paid game on Steam just a month before its release.

The 1st and 2nd top-selling games on this list are DAVE THE DIVER and BattleBit Remastered.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has received a few trailers on several occasions, but the game never became as popular as it did recently when the studio shared some gameplay details with the fans. Aside from including a “genital” option in character customization, the gameplay confirmed that players could have a romantic relationship with Druids (and possibly other species), one of which shapeshifted into a bear during the intimate scene.

This resulted in the game trending over multiple platforms for a few days, boosting the marketing for the game. It could be the main reason that Baldur’s Gate 3 has joined the ranks of AAA games, like Elden Ring, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Hogwarts Legacy, all of which performed great in sales. Baldur’s Gate 3 is also expected to be content-rich since the studio confirmed it would take 200 hours for perfectionists to complete it.

The only two games stopping Baldur’s Gate 3 from reaching the top spot are DAVE THE DIVER and BattleBit Remastered, both of which have been well-received. Even so, Baldur’s Gate 3 has more positive reviews than the top two games, as it boasts over 57,000 reviews, while BattleBit Remastered has a close 46,000, and DAVE THE DIVER sits at the top with only 26,000

Baldur’s Gate 3 is an upcoming RPG game developed and published by Larian Studios. The third iteration in the main series is based on Dungeons & Dragons.
