Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 7 will be the last major update

Published

Larian Studios CEO and Baldur’s Gate 3 development director Swen Vincke has announced that Patch 7, which will add official modding tools, will be a handover to players, suggesting it will be the last major game update.

Vincke discussed this update and Larian’s future plans at “An Evening with Baldur’s Gate 3,” a masterclass hosted by BAFTA on June 14, 2024.

As reported by Eurogamer, Swen Vincke is looking forward to implementing official mod support, stating: “One of the big things for us, and one that we’re really working on now, is the ability for players to mod Baldur’s Gate 3 themselves, because then they’ll be able to create their own things.

Vincke continued by referring to the upcoming release of Patch 7, scheduled for September 2024, as “the moment when we’re going to say ‘ok, now it’s all yours’” to players by allowing them to create and add content to the game.

However, while Larian Studios has no plans to end support for Baldur’s Gate 3 in the immediate future, Vincke says players shouldn’t expect any other major content updates.

Although the developers are currently working “as if the game had just been released“, Vincke asserts that “you will see the support level decrease to focus only on critical bug fixes” after the release of Patch 7.

Of course, mods for Baldur’s Gate 3 have been around since the game’s launch and range from new gameplay features like increasing the level cap and expanding party size to restoring cut content and, for one whatever reason, give guns to Astarion.

However, Larian’s official tools will make mods much easier to create and share. The update won’t allow fans to create new story content, but console players will be able to use (but not create) mods for the first time.

While the lack of additional content for Baldur’s Gate 3 is likely to disappoint many players, it comes as no surprise given that Larian has already confirmed that it will not be doing DLC ​​or Baldur’s Gate 4. The studio is working rather on “two very ambitious RPGs“.
