The Dungeons and Dragons RPG from Larian Studios is as much about the 'looking good doing it' as whatever 'it' happens to be at any given moment. As such, several eager modders have taken it upon themselves to make cosmetic items in BG3 as convenient as possible, with all manner of retextures and transmog variants. This new Baldur's Gate 3 mod, however, might be the simplest and most effective way to stay on top of your outfits yet. Read the rest of the story...

Read more.Good news, Baldur's Gate 3 is set to get "robust, cross-platform" official mod support this yearFeb 23, 2024 - VG247If you like the idea of playing Baldur's Gate 3 with mods - and why wouldn’t you, even if they can currently sometimes be a source of post-patch issues - then you’ll probably be glad to hear that Larian’s currently working on “a robust, cross-platform plan for mod support” that it hopes to release later this year. Yup, no matter whether you’re in the mood for some fresh character classes or a bit of extra companion chatter, mods have been delivering that for plenty of PC players since the game came out, but it looks like Larian could well be planning to let console players in on the fun in some fashion. The studio’s also continuing to whack the minor in-game issues that’ve popped up for some players following the arrival of Patch 6. In a tweet following the deployment of Hotfix 19, Larian’s publishing director, Michael Douse, wrote: “We generally don’t talk about things they’re ready, but as you may have read, we’re making an exception. We’ve been working on a robust, cross-platform plan for mod support to be released later in year. We love our modding community and we want to support them. It’s coming.” Read more Larian is working on official mod support for Baldur's Gate 3 and it'll be cross-platform: 'We love our modding community and we want to support them'Feb 22, 2024 - PC GamerOne of the best things about Baldur's Gate 3 are the mods. Another great thing is Larian's diligent pace of major updates and smaller hotfixes. But they unfortunately sometimes come into conflict: Larian releases a patch, some internal bits and bobs are changed, and suddenly blammo, a whole bunch of mods stop working. But hopefully that will soon be a thing of the past... Read more.Hotfix #19 Now Live!Feb 22, 2024 - Community AnnouncementsEDIT 23/02/2024: Hotfix 19 is now live for PS5 and Xbox as well!

Luckily, she's not a real person; players can leave her to pursue other paths without too much worry. Shadowheart's voice actor Jennifer English, though, might not take the news so well.

This new hotfix should helpFeb 20, 2024 - VG247If you’ve run into any weird or annoying issues when trying to buy or sell things in Baldur's Gate 3 following the arrival of Patch 6, have no fear, a small hotfix is here. And hopefully it should end your woes. It’d been a little while since we last got a properly beefy patch for Larian’s RPG prior to Patch 6’s delivery of some new kissing options, idle animations, and the chance to rearrange your party without having to do as much admin late last week. Sadly, it looks like it ended up leading to some unintended minor issues immediately following its deployment, but a new hotfix has arrived swiftly to solve them. You’ll be glad to know that the notes for hotfix 18 - which is now live - are nowhere near as long as Patch 6’s, mainly due to the fact only two bugs have been swatted. Both fixes concern vendors, with the first preventing “an issue that would cause vendors to initially display their current gold amount as zero”. Yup, the recession in BG3 is over, even if it isn’t in the real UK.

Stereotypes would tell you that it's a class for silly little guys, only played by those with a penchant for seducing dragons and getting themselves into trouble. Sure, they're not immune to becoming badasses—like one Scanlan Shorthalt from Critical Role—but they often do so in a subversive way. Underdog extraordinaires, rather than leading roles...
