Baldur’s Gate 3 Gets Ending Changes with New Updates

If you’ve been following all of the news dropping about Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll know how the game has been received very well. Larian Studios managed to release a game that many fans of Western RPGs and Dungeons & Dragons have connected with, leading to high review scores and good word of mouth. But despite how vast Baldur’s Gate 3 is in content, the game has been getting a number of new updates. Various bug fixes and changes have been addressing different problems fans have pointed out within the updates, but that’s not all that will be coming. Baldur’s Gate 3 is going to be getting other changes that tinker with its ending.

According to a new blog post shared on the Baldur’s Gate 3 Steam page, Larian Studios is going to be adding a new optional ending that players can discover. The ending is related to the character Karlach, the hot-headed Tiefling warrior that you can recruit into your party after finding her in the first act of the game. In the blog post, Larian explains that they plan on adding some better closure to the character’s ending in the conclusion of Baldur’s Gate 3.

“Patch 2 is just around the corner, and while it does include bug fixes, it also includes substantial performance improvements for the first time since launch. Perhaps more notably, we’re adding better closure to the story’s final act in the form of a more fleshed-out ending for Karlach… Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take a moment to focus on a conversation some of you have been having in the background. Many of the points that come out of this conversation are being funneled into the umbrella term of ‘cut content’, so we thought it would be helpful to give you some clarity about that as we think about the future of Baldur’s Gate 3.”

The blog post also goes on to discuss many of the UI changes and other technical improvements that will make the overall experience of playing Baldur’s Gate 3 even better. For many who are big fans of Karlach, the changes to her ending are the bigger news. A lot of the feedback from players was about how the conclusion of her story was unsatisfactory based on player choices throughout the game. Beyond that, Larian is also planning to tweak the epilogue of the game as well with new scenes that will extend things a bit. “We’re happy that Baldur’s Gate 3 has resonated with a great many of you, but we’ll never take that for granted. We’re committed to tying up loose ends, fixing the remaining bugs, and improving things where we see they could – and should – be improved.”

Baldur’s Gate 3 has already been released on PC but will be coming to both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles. The game will be out for PlayStation 5 on September 6th, 2023, with early access to those who get the deluxe edition a few days earlier. Xbox players will see the game on Xbox Series X at a later date in 2023, but will not have local co-op play like the other versions.
