    Does it run on Linux? And will it run on my shitty laptop? (9th gen i5 and 1050, 12gb ram)

    I have a desktop as well that’ll definitely run it, but I wanna play it in bed

        The launcher will launch through Steam and you select direct x or Vulkan with it. I believe if you log into the launcher you can do cross platform saves.

        I will be using my Xbox controller, so I will hold the Xbox logo and right stick to move the curser to start game and right bumper as the left click. Then it will launch.

        I will explore Faerun from my sofa.

      Adding on to this, how about for steam deck? I see that it’s been Deck verified but I have a lot of games in my library that are supposedly Deck verified but are unplayable (Horizon Zero Dawn and Remnant 2 stand out in memory).

      I could just install it and try for myself, and likely will, but before I commit to a 100+gb download I’d love to hear if anyone else has tried.

        I saw this in an article about the Xbox-s that mentioned the Steam Deck

        Larian Studios head of publishing Michael Douse said that playing it on the handheld(Steam Deck) is “absolutely wild” and that, while it won’t be verified on launch, the team is actively working towards it. This is a unique approach. Rather than developing for each console simultaneously, Larian Studios is rolling out Baldur’s Gate 3 when it’s ready for each. First, it’ll arrive on PC, then PS5, and then Xbox or the Steam Deck–whichever comes first. While the wait might be longer, it saves the game from being delayed across the board.

      The early access ran very will with my Linux PC.
      Ubuntu 23.04, Intel i7 12700, Nvidia 3080
