Baldur’s Gate 3 has been a work in progress since it’s initial early access release on October 6, 2020. Numerous patches have been added since then, and patch 5 is on the way. “Patch 5 will expand on the breadth and depth of Baldur’s Gate 3. Starting Tuesday, July 13, players will discover new game-changing mechanics, tons of combat and AI improvements, visual upgrades to weapons and cinematics, a bigger focus on role-playing, and more Owlbear cub content to make your heart burst. You can also expect to take a tantalizing step toward unearthing Shadowheart’s mysteries.”
Some of the features coming in the patch include the active roll system, background goals, and camping supplies. The AI has also been given a “serious tune up”. Independent developer Larian Studios has previously stated that 2022 is the earliest that gamers can expect a full release of Baldur’s Gate 3. Early access granted players the first of three acts and originally had six playable classes, the Druid became the newest class recently released bringing the total up to seven.
