All Patch 2 Notes for Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3)
Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 2 is upon us. Really. It’s been less than a week since the game’s first major patch landed and Larian Studios has delivered another update which is nearly as meaty. For a start, it fleshes out Karlach’s epilogue and makes it marginally less of a downer. And it’ll be live with the PlayStation 5 version at launch, along with all the changes from the first patch. But what else does it do? To shed some light on this new update, here are all Patch 2 notes for Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3).
Did Karlach need a new epilogue scene? That’s open to debate. But she’s one of my favourite characters so, personally, I’m happy to get more Karlach. Certainly, compared to other companions she got a bit of a raw deal and the epilogue scene, plus a handful of other scenes, promisesxc1 to smooth that out.
On the non-Karlach front, the patch also introduces ‘Withers’ Wardrobe of Wayward Friends’, which helps you dismiss co-op partners from your campaign. And it addresses a pretty annoying bug that left players unable to raise the Grymforge forge platform, something I ended up shaking my fist at. Also, “Prisoners rescued from Moonrise Towers that take the boat with you will no longer attempt to arrest you for trespassing upon arriving at Last Light.” I hadn’t run into that bug but I wish I had because it sounds absolutely amazing.
There are also performance tweaks and, if you’re a Wyll fan you’ll be happy to hear that if you kiss on the ground you no longer clip into his head. On top of that, there are some concessions to convenience. On controller, for example, the radial menu now features Fast Travel.
And everything else? There are an awful lot of changes, so strap yourself in, but here’s absolutely everything BG3 Patch 2 does. But be warned, there are some pretty major spoilers within these patch notes.
