Developer Larian Studios have launched Hotfix 20 for Baldur’s Gate 3. This is a pretty hefty update that brings a lot of improvements and bug fixes. It also brings Patch 7 to Mac users, meaning they can now play as the Barbarian and its two new subclasses.

Speaking of the Barbarian, using Frenzy or Animal Rage now drops concentration, required by some spells to keep them active in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Characters can no longer jump off a high wall as the pathfinding logic has been corrected. Because of this, they will now use a ladder to get down safely. Also, if one person is currently in dialogue with an NPC in multiplayer mode, all party members are now able to vote and exit the dialogue as originally intended.
