The first 15k orders of the Baldur’s Gate 3 Collector’s Edition will also receive three Magic: The Gathering booster packs containing the Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate card set featuring characters from Baldur’s Gate 3.

The Collector’s Edition also features a battle diorama of a mind flayer and a drow locked in a deadly exchange of blade and psionic might; a hardcover art book written by Larian; a tadpole-inspired metal keyring; an oversized custom-engraved 20D metal die; a single-sided, A3 cloth map of Faerûn; character sheets; 32 die-cut vinyl stickers inspired by the game, and a certificate of authenticity serialized with the unique number of your Collector’s Edition.   

While the launch is in August, there’s plenty more to unwrap before the year is out.

What is Baldur’s Gate 3 about?

Gather your party, and return to the Forgotten Realms in a tale of fellowship and betrayal, sacrifice and survival, and the lure of absolute power.

Mysterious abilities are awakening inside you, drawn from a Mind Flayer parasite planted in your brain. Resist, and turn darkness against itself. Or embrace corruption, and become ultimate evil.

From the creators of Divinity: Original Sin 2 comes a next-generation RPG, set in the world of Dungeons and Dragons.
