It's Psudo Turn based, but if you didn't know about the auto pause action in the settings then it played like real time. Even then it felt like real time in 6 second bursts. Personally I prefer the Divinity model, but with an action, bonus action, and movement all being separate. That's how tabletop plays, and I want something as close to actual D&D as possible. It's highly likely we'll get a creation mode, so I look at BG3 and see a nice opportunity to play tabletop with friends who's schedule or location doesn't allow them to meet up in person for an actual session.
