As big as the world of Baldur’s Gate 3 from the Belgian Larian Studios is in itself, it is tiny in the context of the entire Dungeons & Dragons. This was clearly demonstrated by one of the fans by calculating the game’s location in a fantasy universe.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is set on the continent of Feyrun – the most popular setting in the Forgotten Realms (the most famous D&D world) – in the area of the city of Baldur’s Gate on the Sword Coast.
The developers never explained exactly where in the region Baldur’s Gate 3 takes place, but instead passed it on to interested players came knowledgeable D&D fan from the Reddit forum – CommanderRasseru.
The starting point for CommanderRasseru was Baldur’s Gate. On the way up the Chiontar River, the enthusiast “walked” past the moon towers to the nautiloid crash site, where the adventures in Baldur’s Gate 3 begin.
CommanderRasseru admitted that his version of the game’s setting is approximate, as the maps of Baldur’s Gate 3 and D&D are not 100% identical. However, the scope of the user’s research project can be estimated.
If you look at the entire map of Feirun (see image above), you will notice how small a part of this continent is compared to its overall extent, which players have to explore in the Larian Studios project.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is available for PC and macOS on Steam and GOG, as well as PS5, while it will launch on Xbox Series X and S in December. A patch will be released before the end of the week that will fix a serious performance issue in the third act.
