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 up to now, they are saying. One other new class is getting added, as is an equippable meat easter egg from their LARPing livestream earlier this yr. Listed here are the few particulars they’ve shared up to now 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 lessons represented up to now, it will be rad to see the Bard class get thrown within the combine, maybe. That is one that may profit properly from getting gamers fingers on in early entry, I would suppose. They do say “Who’s able to make some magic?” although, which maybe does 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 determination to make use of salami as a weapon. They’re additionally dual-wieldable. However are they bludgeoning or piercing injury, hmm?
That is all for right now, although Larian say they’re planning 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 fingers 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 keep on with Patch 5 to proceed taking part in, you will need to change sport branches. Larian reiterate learn how 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 that a full launch isn’t happening this year. Larian CEO Swen Vincke mentioned earlier this yr that Larian “could be completely happy if we are able to handle to launch it subsequent yr,” which means 2022.
