Baldur’s Gate 3 is venturing forth into anther early entry milestone. Larian say that BG3’s subsequent main replace, Patch 6, is almost right here. It’s, as soon as once more, their largest patch to this point, 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 below are the few particulars they’ve shared to this point earlier than giving a correct introduction to Patch 6 quickly.
The large add for this patch sounds prone 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 courses represented to this point, it could be rad to see the Bard class get thrown within the combine, maybe. That is one that will profit nicely from getting gamers arms on in early entry, I might assume. They do say “Who’s able to make some magic?” although, which maybe would not sound notably Bardly.
One other replace they’ve teased is equippable meats, a callback to their developer LARP session to rejoice Patch 5 launch. In Patch 6 you’ll 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 right now, 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 might be able to 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 wish to change recreation branches. Larian reiterate methods to go about that in their announcement post from right now.
As for the remainder of BG3’s early entry trajectory, Larian know for certain full launch isn’t happening this year. Larian CEO Swen Vincke mentioned earlier this 12 months that Larian “could be comfortable if we are able to handle to launch it subsequent 12 months,” which means 2022.
