I signed up, now what?

Thank you for applying! We review every application that comes in. If you don’t hear from us straight away, that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten you. We’ll reach out once we have a test you’re eligible for.

How do you select playtesters?

Playtesters are selected based on the kind of content we want feedback on. Once that is decided, we evaluate what kind of feedback we need and reach out to applicants who best fit our desired profile for that playtest. If selected, you will receive an email and we’ll provide you with the date, time, and all other necessary information for a successful playtesting experience.

What’s going to happen with the information I submit?

Regarding any information you provide in your application, it will be used strictly for building our playtester groups and will not be shared with any third party or kept for extended amounts of time without your consent.

Will I need to sign an NDA?

You will be required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in order to playtest Baldur’s Gate 3. The purpose of the NDA is to make sure you agree not to divulge information about our games before we’re ready to do so.
