Baldur’s Gate 3 has been consuming the lives of PC gamers for weeks but when the game comes to Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 consoles, will it have cross-save?

Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate 3 is perfect for fans of Dungeons and Dragons or any other medieval fantasy-based role-playing game. While many knew that this game would be popular, players didn’t expect it to become as massive as it has. Thousands of fans have taken to social media to express how much they love it while veteran developers have heralded the game as a triumph.

However, the Xbox version of Baldur’s Gate 3 was delayed due to the fact that the game wasn’t able to run split screen on the Xbox Series S. Now it will be released later this year on Xbox while PlayStation users will get it on September 6. What does that delay mean for cross-save, though?

Does Baldur’s Gate 3 have cross-save on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC?

Baldur’s Gate 3 is confirmed to have cross-save between Xbox, PlayStation 5, and PC. Players who start on the PC version of the game and switch over to consoles will be able to continue their save freely.

Baldur’s Gate 3 requires players to sign into a Larian Studios account, which allows everything on their account to be accessed elsewhere. This allows PC gamers to easily sync saves between different pieces of hardware, like if they have a desktop and a portable PC like the Steam Deck or Asus ROG Ally. PC gamers are required to also sync their Larian Studios account to their Steam Account.

This functionality is also available on consoles. When a player downloads Baldur’s Gate 3 on a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S, they will be asked to sign into their Larian Studios account, which enables cross-save across all three platforms. 

As those who have started the game already know, Baldur’s Gate 3 also allows for multiple saves. Gamers can go back to whatever save they desire on whichever platform they desire.

After starting Baldur’s Gate 3, players will be required to sign up for a Larian Studios account. This tasks players with jumping through the usual set of sign-up hoops. 

In order to register, gamers will need to put in a username, email address, and password. Then, they will be required to accept the privacy policy and confirm whether they want to receive emails from Larian Studios. 

After making a Larian Studios account, players will then be prompted to sync their Steam account as well. This only takes a minute and requires the appropriate Steam sign-in information for the account sync.
