Baldur’s Gate 3 is venturing forth into anther early entry milestone. Larian say that BG3’s subsequent main replace, Patch 6, is sort of right here. It’s, as soon as once more, their largest patch to date, they are saying. One other new class is getting added, as is an equippable meat easter egg from their LARPing livestream earlier this 12 months. Listed here are the few particulars they’ve shared to date earlier than giving a correct introduction to Patch 6 quickly.
The massive add for this patch sounds more likely to be its new class. Larian have not let on which that’ll be simply but although. BG3 Patch four added the Druid class again in February. With a number of melee and casting lessons represented to date, it might be rad to see the Bard class get thrown within the combine, maybe. That is one that may profit properly from getting gamers arms on in early entry, I would suppose. They do say “Who’s able to make some magic?” although, which maybe would not sound significantly Bardly.
One other replace they’ve teased is equippable meats, a callback to their developer LARP session to have fun Patch 5 launch. In Patch 6 you can make the questionable resolution to make use of salami as a weapon. They’re additionally dual-wieldable. However are they bludgeoning or piercing harm, hmm?
That is all for at this time, although Larian say they’re planning yet one more of their Panel From Hell livestreams to dig into the Patch 6 particulars. They’re additionally taking the patch to EGX in London this weekend the place people could possibly get a cheeky sneek arms on.
When Larian say “largest” I believe they imply content-wise, although they do additionally say that they are anticipating Patch 6 to be a couple of 60GB obtain. That’s hefy.
Patch 6 will as soon as once more be incompatible with previous early entry variations. If you wish to follow Patch 5 to proceed taking part in, you may need to change recreation branches. Larian reiterate learn how to go about that in their announcement post from at this time.
As for the remainder of BG3’s early entry trajectory, Larian know for positive that a full launch isn’t happening this year. Larian CEO Swen Vincke mentioned earlier this 12 months that Larian “can be completely happy if we are able to handle to launch it subsequent 12 months,” that means 2022.
