Baldur’s Gate 3 has over 17,000 variations for its endings and it is a highly replayable game.
The number should not be taken at face value as it accounts for every type of ending for the ten playable companions.
If you want to truly experience all of the content the game has to offer, you might want to do the campaign with every single playable character.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the few roleplaying games (RPGs) that actually believe in player choice. A large number of games either give you a good ending or a bad ending, and you end up having to choose between two or three options during story quests. This is not the case with Baldur’s Gate 3 and there are plenty of ways to completely change the events of your campaign. When it comes to the endings alone, Larian Studios revealed over 17,000 possible endings for Baldur’s Gate 3 which is an incredible feat.

The 17,000 possible endings sound impressive but you need to factor in that there are 10 playable characters right now. If we get around 14 or 15 variables in the story that affect how the campaign ends, it leads to over 17,000 possibilities. The number should not be taken at face value but you can definitely hop into a series of campaigns and have a completely different experience each time you pick a different main character.

This level of replayability is one of the things that makes Baldur's Gate 3 such a special game. It's a game that you can play over and over again, and each time you will experience something new. Whether you're a fan of the Baldur's Gate series or you're new to the world of D&D, Baldur's Gate 3 is a game that you won't want to miss.

With over 17,000 variations for the story’s ending,  there are many different ways that the game can end, depending on the choices that you make throughout your playthrough. Some of these endings are major, while others are more minor. However, all of them will have a significant impact on the story and the fate of the world.

Here are some of the factors that can affect the ending of Baldur's Gate 3:

  • Your alignment: Are you a good character, an evil character, or somewhere in between?

  • Your choices: The choices that you make throughout the game will have a significant impact on the ending.

  • Your companions: The companions that you choose to travel with will also affect the ending.

  • Your actions: The actions that you take in the game will also affect the ending. Creating conflict in the Forgotten Realms will not lead to a good ending.
