Baldur's Gate 3 announces a massive new update that will be released in the near future for the popular RPG. Changes to the epilogues of the origin characters and more are being teased. Baldur's Gate 3 has seen tremendous success in the weeks following its debut, already garnering massive concurrent player numbers on Steam and reaching a peak of almost 900,000 players two weeks after release. Now, Larian Studios is teasing a major update that will be coming soon to Baldur's Gate 3.
Although Baldur's Gate 3 was released just at the beginning of August, the RPG has already received a major update that addresses a variety of issues in the game. The massive Patch 1 update for Baldur's Gate 3 included hundreds of fixes for various RPG-related bugs, as well as balance adjustments for the numerous playable classes and races in the game. The first update for Baldur's Gate 3 was so extensive that the patch notes for the update even exceeded the character limit on Steam. Now, according to the developer, the next update for the game could also be of considerable size.
A post on Larian Studios' official Twitter account hints at the massive update and shares vague hints about some of the changes that will be included in Patch 2. Larian suggests that the patch will provide "significant improvements" in terms of game performance, as well as a variety of "adjustments and changes" similar to Patch 1. The post also hints at the developer making changes to the epilogues of the origin characters, taking into account the feedback received from fans. No release date for the launch of Patch 2 for Baldur's Gate 3 has been mentioned.
News about a major update for Baldur's Gate 3 is emerging, while many fans have been providing their own feedback to enhance the already popular role-playing game. One particularly negative aspect for many fans was the method of recruiting Minthara, one of the game's more popular companions. Others suggested general improvements for the game's evil alignment and felt that evil choices did not offer sufficient rewards.
The early success of Baldur's Gate 3 has already allowed Larian and the fans to glimpse into the future of the game. Tom Butler, a senior executive at Larian Studios, has already mentioned in an interview that the development team is in discussions regarding potential DLCs for Baldur's Gate 3. Early fan requests range from new areas like Avernus to the addition of spells that were cut from the game's original release. The already immense popularity of Baldur's Gate 3 promises a bright future for the role-playing game.
Baldur's Gate 3 is now available for PC, with a release for PS5 scheduled for September 6th, and a version for Xbox Series X planned for late 2023.
