The wildly successful RPG Baldur’s Gate 3 is getting a big new update next week, with Larian Studios teasing fans about what they can expect from it. Baldur’s Gate 3 was one of 2023’s biggest games. Not only was it a huge sales success, but the game also took home a dizzying number of awards, including the coveted Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023. Baldur’s Gate 3 was such a hit at launch that Larian could have left it be, but it has instead released multiple updates focused on improving the game and sometimes even adding new content.
Baldur’s Gate 3 updates have worked to address some of the game’s more egregious bugs as well as add new features and story content. One of the more substantial Baldur’s Gate 3 updates added an epilogue to the game to give fans even more content to sink their teeth into. The next big Baldur’s Gate 3 update is right around the corner, and fans now have somewhat of an idea of what to expect from it.
Baldur’s Gate 3’s Honour Mode Misses One Obvious Opportunity
Baldur’s Gate 3’s Honour Mode gives Legendary Actions to many bosses, but it misses out on one key group of characters who can be fought in battle.
Larian has confirmed that Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 6 will improve the game’s kissing animations, add new camp idle animations, introduce new Legendary Actions for the blisteringly difficult Honour Mode, and implement “plenty of bug fixes.” Specific Baldur’s Gate 3 bugs weren’t pointed out, but those details should come whenever the official patch notes are released.
What to Expect from Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 6
- Releasing mid-February 2024
- Improvements to kissing animations
- New camp idle animations
- New Legendary Actions in Honour Mode
- Bug fixes
Specifics on the fixes coming to Baldur’s Gate 3 have yet to be revealed, but there are some that fans will no doubt be hoping to see. For instance, Baldur’s Gate 3 split-screen still has some annoying issues that have yet to be fixed, like usernames blocking the mini-map for player 1 and frequent crashing in certain Act 3 areas. Larian didn’t say that fixes for these problems will be coming in Patch 6, but it will be interesting to see which bugs are addressed in the new update.
It’s likely that there will be even more Baldur’s Gate 3 updates in the months ahead, as Larian is clearly committed to continuously improving its celebrated game. As for its next project, Larian already has some ideas about how things are going to play out for its next game.
