    Developer Claims Baldur's Gate 3 Takes 100 Hours to Complete

    Larian Studios claims a standard playthrough of their RPG will take up to 100 hours.

    by Shawn Zipay

    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
