The answer is both yes and no! If you are a gamer who values story, lore, and other such aspects of a game while focusing on learning every gameplay mechanic, it has to offer—playing Baldur’s Gate 3 without a prior DnD experience will put you in situations where you will have trouble understanding simple things in the game. 

While Larian Studios say that Baldur’s Gate 3 is a great entry point in the series, you must keep in mind the game is a direct sequel to Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2 and is set 120 years after the events of the second game. 

Many of the mechanics, rules, and other gameplay elements in Baldur’s Gate 3 are from the DnD TTRPGs. So if you haven’t played DnD before, you must go through a steep learning curve while playing Baldur’s Gate 3 to understand the gameplay entirely.

On the other hand, Baldur’s Gate 3 lets you create your own character instead of forcing using origin characters and does a little hand-holding to make the game slightly welcoming to RPG fans who have never played DnD before. 

Moreover, if you take the help of guides, lore videos, and wikis, you can quickly get into Baldur’s Gate 3 even without playing past games or the DnD TTRPG.  

That concludes our guide on you can play Baldur’s Gate 3 if you have never played DnD. Check out our dedicated Baldur’s Gate 3 section for more on the game.
