It's Time to Pucker Up as Baldur's Gate 3 Releases Latest Patch

What's in a kiss? Larian Studios

Valentine's Day may be over but in Baldur's Gate 3, it looks like love is still in the air. That's because a new patch has been released and the highlights is the addition of new and randomized kisses for each romantic partner. That's right! There are now unique scenes that better reflect the personalities of each character. In addition, the scenes have been improved to better accommodate shorter and taller body types.

Another interesting change made with this new update are the idle animations. When you explore your campsite, you should notice these idle animations for some of the companions. After all, not everyone just wants to stand around. With this change, the campsite should feel more alive. Idle animations added include:

  • Lae'zel: Studying a githyanki disc.
  • Minthara: Contemplating a skull, tending to mushrooms, expressing violence, adjusting her armour, plotting her future, and being bothered by the sun.
  • Jaheira: Sitting, kneeling and whispering to a rat messenger, and whittling.
  • Minsc: Cooking and shaving his head.
  • Shadowheart: Polishing the Spear of Night.
  • Halsin: Whittling.

Patch Highlights

Here are the other changes to look forward to with this new update:

  • You can now dismiss a recruited companion from your party while speaking to the companion you want to replace them with.
  • When a dialogue triggers automatically, the game now tries to prioritize your avatar character as the main speaker.
  • If you started your game on a set difficulty, you can now switch to Custom Mode.
    • The only exception is when you're already playing Honour Mode.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent travel between acts.
  • Fixed an issue causing quicksaves to fail to upload to cross-saves.
  • Characters in the epilogue camp party now have fitting titles below their names.
  • Fixed the Shield Bash and Rebuke of the Mighty passives not triggering Saving Throws.
