Baldur’s Gate 3 developer Larian Studios has teased a potential extended ending for the game, which may be coming in the upcoming Patch 5. While Patch 5 for Baldur’s Gate 3 has been teased by the studio for a few days now, what the update will entail is becoming clearer to the community.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the most critically acclaimed video games seen in a very long time. The RPG received huge praise all around for most elements of the game and found itself among The Game Awards nominees in a variety of categories, including the prestigious Game of the Year. However, Act 3 of Baldur’s Gate 3 is where most criticism of the game is leveled, with a sentiment that the game suffers from a lack of an epilogue, where players can sit and reflect at the end of their adventure. It seems Larian Studios could be set to address this with the game’s Patch 5.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Players Discover Unmarked Quest That Spans the Entire Game
Known for having plenty of narrative branches, there is one hidden quest in Baldur’s Gate 3 whose outcome depends on very loosely related choices.
Larian Studios teased the announcement on Twitter, with a fun invite from Withers to “Withers’ Epilogue Party Extravaganza,” where players can “Reminisce by the campfire,” with an instruction to “Bring your (living) friends!” While the announcement stops short of officially announcing an epilogue for Baldur’s Gate 3, the implication is clear. CEO at Larian Studios Swen Vincke has been tweeting frequent updates about Patch 5 over the last couple of days, with its release due over the next few days. If this “invite” from Withers wasn’t released to tease an epilogue as part of the update, it would be an extremely strange choice from the studio.
Now, discussion online has moved to what Larian should include in Baldur’s Gate 3‘s epilogue party. Everyone will go into the update with their own ideas about what they want, and it might be tough to please everyone. The term “party” suggests it might be similar to the party at the end of Act 1, where the characters have a moment of downtime to reflect on recent events. New dialogue with the romance options in Baldur’s Gate 3 is a must-have for many fans, considering interaction with them is limited at the end of the game’s current conclusion. A conversation does occur, but it’s nothing substantial, and hopefully, this update makes up for that.
Baldur’s Gate 3 was released just a few months ago, and gamers are already clamoring for more from Larian Studios. Given the success of the game and the continued updates from the developer, it’s possible that Baldur’s Gate 3 DLC could be on the way at some point in the future. Nothing is confirmed, but Larian would leave a lot of money on the table if it chose not to release DLC for the game. However, any news will likely come after the game’s release on Xbox Series X/S later this year.
