With the early access release of Baldur’s Gate 3 just around the corner, developer Larian Studios has launched a new account service that it says will control cross-save compatibility for the RPG and all of its future games.
The new Larian Account is a means for Larian Studios to control saves within the cloud on a platform that it owns, meaning you’ll be able to transfer your saves between Baldur’s Gate 3 purchases on Steam, GOG, and Google Stadia. Larian says that this account will also be used to support save transfers on any other platforms Baldur’s Gate 3 launches on (although none have been announced yet).
Your Larian Account will also enable cross-platform multiplayer, though Larian says this won’t be available on the day Baldur’s Gate 3 launches. Any Twitch integration with Baldur’s Gate 3 will also be supported through this new account, which allows you to let your audience make crucial in-game decisions while you’re streaming.
