Baldur’s Gate 3 players get access to the extensive update 5: The new patch is available for download. The patch notes are extensive – there are a number of changes and innovations waiting for you. Last week, the developers announced new game-changing mechanics, combat and AI improvements, visual upgrades for weapons and cinematics, a greater focus on RPG and more Owlbear Cub content.

With the Active Roll it is now possible at Baldur’s Gate 3 to change the favor to your own advantage by applying spells and bonuses to the throw. Changes to the user interface are also pending. The effects of modifications and status effects are visible directly on the UI instead of being calculated in the background. Also new: After downloading Update 5, the selection of the story background of your character will lead you to a series of secret mini-quests based on these roles. If you complete the tasks, you will receive an inspiration point.

A new feature concerns the camp resources: You now need individual materials to set up a camp. According to Larian Studios, this should lead to long resets being used more strategically. There are also a number of bug fixes and optimizations. In addition, twelve new magic items are included in the loot and quest rewards.
