After an overwhelming success and still several months in the making, Baldur’s Gate 3 continues to update and improve the gaming experience. This time, Patch 5 may be so large that you will have to uninstall and reinstall the game.

A HUGE patch and drastic recommendations

Few games can boast tracking as good as Baldur’s Gate 3. After a sensational release last summer and a reception so good that it received nominations in numerous categories of the Game Awards (including the most prestigious), the game from Larian Studios continues to be updated to maintain its position as the best role-playing game of the moment. After 4 patches already full of additions and fixes of all kinds, it is finally the turn of Patch 5 to arrive on your computers, but be careful, you may have to make some space.

Patch 5 is coming soon! This update should weigh around 30GB, but you will need around 130GB of free space on your hard drive to install it. If you do not have the disk space required to install the update, we recommend uninstalling Baldur’s Gate 3 and then reinstalling it with the latest version.

As you probably understood, you may need to free up some space on your hard drive if you want to install the new Baldur’s Gate 3 update! It must be said that, according to the developers themselves, this patch contains “the most new features since the game was released.”

New features that could justify the weight

If you’re looking to renew or expand your Baldur’s Gate 3 gaming experience, suffice it to say that Patch 5 may make your wishes come true! For example, among the new features announced in this new update is the addition of a full epilogue. This playable epilogue is accessible to all players as long as they reload a game before the final battle. It takes you 6 months after the events of the original game and allows you to experience real closure for your characters.

In addition to this already extensive addition, Baldur’s Gate 3 players can also enjoy two new game modes: Honor Mode and Custom Mode. If the latter is ultimately quite explicit (it is a mode in which you can modify your experience by changing several specific elements to take control of the game, like a real tabletop RPG), the former is nothing more thanan additional level of difficulty, even more difficult than the one that was previously at the top of the leaderboard. The developers promise us greater challenge both in and out of combat, as well as around thirty new elements to take into account in boss fights, including a brand new system called “Legendary Action”. The latter is intended to surprise players and further spice up the gaming experience.

But the most interesting addition to this new mode certainly lies in its almost “hardcore” side. In fact, when you die for the first time in Honor Mode, you have access to stats corresponding to your performance (specifically the play time before death), and you have to decide whether you want to start from scratch or continue the adventure (which… deactivation). honor mode). If you manage to complete the game in Honor Mode, you’ll be entitled to a new golden D20 as a reward for showing off to your friends.
