Baldur’s Gate 3 patch #2 is coming, here’s what will be in it

baldur's gate 3 patch #2

Larian Studios has just confirmed that Baldur’s Gate 3 patch #2 is coming soon and will add a lot to origin characters, performance, and more.

Despite the game’s critical and commercial acclaim, Baldur’s Gate 3 is still suffering from some major issues. Among these are framerate drops, UI errors, soft locks, and regular crashes. It’s not just the technical aspects, either. Many players have taken issue with some of the game’s odd pacing in the story as well as some things surrounding the endings.

Patch #1 was released recently and the patch largely focused on technical aspects, some balance changes, and some confusing dialog choices that tricked players into romancing Gale. Larian Studios tackled over 1,000 issues with the game in that patch and encouraged players to report any other issues they might have with the game. The studio clearly got some answers as Baldur’s Gate 3 patch #2 is right around the corner.

What will Baldur’s Gate 3 patch #2 change?

Patch 2 is addressing major performance issues, as well as tweaks to the origin character epilogues.

Patch 2 was actually announced alongside the release of Patch 1, but very few details were given at that time. A recent tweet from Larian Studios shed a bit more light on the issues that it will be focusing on with the upcoming patch #2. Most notably, the performance and stability issues that many players have been experiencing with the PC release.

In particular, framerate drops have left many PCs struggling, even on the lowest settings. As for non-technical concerns, the studio is also listening to feedback from fans about the origin characters, particularly their endings. Many fans were frustrated over less-than-ideal epilogues of their favorite party members, though it’s unclear how this update will change things

With Baldur’s Gate 3’s PS5 release coming soon and the Xbox Series X/S version coming later this year, Larian Studios is going to be very busy with patches in the coming months.

When is patch #2 coming out?

Baldur’s Gate 3 patch #2 is just around the corner, but no official release date has been confirmed as of this writing.

Patch #1 came out three weeks after the full release of Baldur’s Gate 3. Larian is seemingly quite confident about patch #2 coming out very soon, and new details will likely be coinciding with the release itself. With many of the technical issues addressed in patch #1, many fans are hoping that patch #2 addresses more specific issues with the game’s structure and pacing.
