Baldur’s Gate 3 Says “No” to Gunslingers, But Yes to Adventure!

Baldur’s Gate 3

You know, it’s a sad day for all you pistol-packing gamers out there. Larian Studios, the brilliant minds behind Baldur’s Gate 3, has just confirmed that there are “no plans” to include a Gunslinger class in the game. Sorry to burst your fantasy bubble, but it seems firearms aren’t on the menu… for now.

Now, in case you’ve been living in the Underdark, let me fill you in on what Baldur’s Gate 3 is all about. It’s the latest installment of the iconic Dungeons & Dragons franchise, brought to life by the talented folks at Larian Studios. And can I just say, this game has been raking in the praise during its multi-year early access period on PC. Think of it as a behemoth of an RPG, ready to storm onto your PCs and PlayStation 5 very soon. We might just witness a new RPG era, folks!

Naturally, with a game this massive, you’d expect all sorts of races and classes for your character. Players have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to embody the legendary Gunslinger class, made popular in recent years. But alas, Larian Studios has dashed those dreams for now. In a recent chat with The Gamer, they candidly said, “For now, we have no plans to add a Gunslinger class or firearms.” Well, there goes our hopes of shooting our way through dragons and demons.

But hey, let’s not fret too much. Even without the Gunslinger, Baldur’s Gate 3 promises oodles of customization options that will surely satisfy your craving for a unique character. Plus, did you hear? There are a whopping 17,000 possible endings in this game! That’s right—you’ll have countless chances to find your perfect class and carve your own adventure.

So mark your calendar, fellow adventurers! Baldur’s Gate 3 sets sail on August 3 for PC and Mac, and September 6 for PS5. Get your swords and spells ready, because this is going to be one epic journey! And who knows, maybe someday Larian Studios will throw us a bone and let us wield dual pistols in a future update. Until then, let’s kick some undead butts the old-fashioned way!
