Latest Baldur’s Gate 3 Update Brings A Wealth Of Improvements (VIDEO)

baldur's gate 3 patch five

The latest Baldur’s Gate 3 update brings a wealth of improvements to the game and it’s going live later this week. Larian Studios is bringing some major improvements to the game, including minor quality of life changes and major gameplay features. It’s been a solid four months since the last one and the team has plenty to share.

In the video below, Larian Studios’ founder and creative director—Swen Vincke—demonstrates all the upcoming adjustments to the early access title, including a “new way to die” and a strategic revamp of camping. Check it out:

There’s a lot to cover, but here are some of the biggest additions to Baldur’s Gate 3:

Baldur’s Gate 3: Breadth and Depth – Patch 5

Active roll: A  new way to die

One of the biggest improvements coming in Patch 5 are Active Rolls, our new dice mechanic. In addition to a full upgrade of the old UI, the biggest change here is in how you can influence dice: While previously, the accepted method for attempting a skill check was to tightly cross your fingers ahead of a roll, now you have the option to apply spells and bonuses to these checks to help increase your odds.

Camping 2.0

Camp Resources are a new feature that will make you think a little more strategically about when to activate a Long Rest. Now in order to make camp, you first need supplies. You know all the food and scraps you find around Baldur’s Gate 3? Starting this patch, those can be used to unlock camp for the night. So if you ever wondered to yourself “how much Waterdhavian cheese wheels could one person possibly need?” the answer is as many as you can physically carry, for cheese is now one of the sacred doorways to sleep. Alternatively, you can still initiate a Partial Rest without using any resources but this won’t recharge you fully.

Shadowheart storyline update

Shadowheart got extra love in this patch. Not only does this update feature extra dialogue permutations with her, her storyline was also kicked up a notch. Expect to start hearing a little more about the mysterious item she carries with her. Oh, and you can now free her in the tutorial! Or leave her of course.

For more information on Breadth and Depth, which goes live on Tuesday, July 23th,  check out the Steam post here.
