Baldur’s Gate 3 Secures Victory as Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023

What a night! We’ve been riding the high, soaking in the awesomeness of all those mind-blowing video game releases that lit up 2023. And guess what? The cherry on top – The Game Awards just dropped the bomb, naming Baldur’s Gate 3 as the Game of the Year!

No surprises there, right? Larian Studios’ RPG juggernaut had it coming. Baldur’s Gate 3 has been turning heads with its killer combo of a story that dances to your choices, combat that sucks you in, and a cast of characters you just wanna hug. And let’s not forget, it snagged The Golden Joystick Awards’ Ultimate Game of the Year just last month. Larian Studios is practically building a trophy fortress, and honestly, they deserve every bit of it.

Baldur’s Gate 3 duked it out with heavyweights like Alan Wake 2, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Resident Evil 4 (2023), and Super Mario Bros. Talk about a clash of titans! Any of these could’ve walked away with the crown in a less crazy year.

Oh, and Xbox Series X|S fam, the moment you’ve been sweating bullets for is here! Larian dropped the bomb on socials – Baldur’s Gate 3 is up for grabs, ready to download and dive into (brace yourself for the download – it’s a chunky one).

So, that’s a wrap for The Game Awards this year. Alongside the hype-worthy awards, we got hit with bombshell after bombshell – God of War Ragnarök DLC and a whole bunch of Sega games in the mix. Same time, same place next year? You betcha!
