Hello, everyone! We hope you’re all keeping well.

It has been a whole festive period since we’ve spoken. We’ve not been resting on our yule logs, though. Patch 7 is almost here, and we’re so excited for you to play it we could explode. That isn’t necessarily a hint, we’re just very excited. We’ve got a Panel from Hell coming up to properly reveal it, but let’s just say it’s going to be….pretty cool.

Ok, that might have been a hint as to what will be in the show itself - just keep yourself calm and all will be revealed soon.

Now, on to the meat of the day: Patch 7 is on the horizon, weighing in at approximately 32GB (so clear some space from the digital platter!), so we have to remind you that any saves made on Patch 6 or prior will no longer be compatible when updated. With Patch 7 installed, the total install size for Baldur’s Gate 3 will be approximately 100GB, so make sure you have plenty free.

So, let’s talk branching! (If that is what you desire!) There are options for you if you want to continue saves from previous patches, or if you want to make sure you’re staying current. Check out the below instructions for whichever method suits you best

1. How to Update Your Game to Patch 7: If you want to play the most up to date version of the game and have never opted into any beta branches in the past, then good news: You don’t need to do anything! When the patch releases, you will receive the most updated version of the game as long as you have automatic updates enabled. To enable automatic updates, please follow the steps below:

  • Right click on the game in your Steam library
  • Select properties
  • Click the Updates tab
  • Select "Always keep this game updated" in the drop down menu

2. How to Update to Patch 7 If You’ve Opted into an Earlier Beta Branch: If you previously opted into any beta for Patch 5 or earlier and want to ensure you get the most up to date content when Patch 7 goes live, then please follow the steps below:

  • Right click on the game in your Steam library
  • Select properties
  • Click the Betas tab
  • Select "None" in the drop down menu

3. How to Continue Your Patch 6 Save: If you want to continue your progress from Patch 5, then take the following steps. Save files are not ‘deleted’ from your computer; they’ll remain in your folder, but you’ll only be able to load saves specific to their respective versions.

  • Right click on the game in your Steam library
  • Select properties
  • Click the BETAS tab
  • In the list under "Select the beta you would like to opt in to", select Patch 6
  • Close the properties menu

If you’d like to continue your save file on the current version, you can move to the Patch 6 beta branch now. Save files are not ‘deleted’ from your computer; they’ll remain in your folder, but you’ll only be able to load saves specific to their respective versions.

Important Note: If you want the option to go back to a previous patch, it’s best to make a new in-game profile and backup your local saves from the previous patch. You can do the following before or after you update to the latest version:

  • Before starting a new playthrough, create a new profile by clicking the profiles button on the top left of the main menu. All your progress in the new patch will then be saved under this profile while your old saves are safe in the previous profile.
  • As an extra safety measure, you can manually back up your savegames:
  • Go to /Documents/Larian Studios/Baldur's Gate 3/PlayerProfiles/
  • Find the folder that is named after the profile you used in the previous patch
  • Copy and paste this entire folder into a backup location
  • If you want to revert back to the previous patch, follow the instructions above and activate your old profile
  • If you have somehow lost your progress by overwriting savegames and want to restore your old backed up savegames simply copy over your old profile folder into its original location again: /Documents/Larian Studios/Baldur's Gate 3/PlayerProfiles/
  • Sync back to the patch6 beta branch with the instructions above and load your old savegames


A Note On Mods: If you have any mods installed, or were using any in previous versions of Baldur’s Gate 3, please remove them before updating your game. You can do this by checking both the ‘Mods’ and ‘Public’ folders in '..\SteamApps\common\Baldurs Gate 3\Data' - if either of those folders are present, please delete them before updating. If applicable, please also delete the file ‘modsettings.lsx’ in the profile folder. Further information about mods can be found at https://larian.com/support/faqs/mod-information_77

Note: Branching unfortunately won’t be available on Stadia for the moment.

GOG:

  • Select the game from the owned games section
  • Click the settings button top right and select manage installation > configure
  • To disable auto-updates, there is a checkbox “automatically update to new version” > uncheck this box to stay on the current patch
  • Unchecking this box will let you roll back to a previous version

The question that worries me the most on the Panel from Hell:

1. Does Laezel have depression and eating disorders, or is her 45kg weight a githyanki physiology?

2. Something about Minthara and other sexy drow in the game

3. Will Moonrise Towers be in early access, or should we wait for the release? And when is the release of the full version

Thank you

Thought all gith were extremely skinny

Edit* Ya

"Like all gith, githyanki were tall and slender humanoids with rough, leathery yellow skin and bright black eyes that were sunken deep in their orbits. They had long and angular skulls, with small and highly placed flat noses, and ears that were pointed and serrated in the back side. They typically grew either red or black hair, which they styled in topknots. Their teeth were pointed."

Just here for the new people to kill, stuff to steal and places to explore.
That is how one progresses in the world, gaining levels. Also the charisma to lie nonstop is a fantastic gift.

Excited !

Please, if mac or stadia release of the patch is delayed again, communicate as openly as possible about it, my biggest fear is to be in the unknown when to be able to play the patch while others (PC probably) are already enjoying it and posting non-stop spoilers smile

Also, please add day/night.

I'm also curious. Is it the "so excited for you to play it we could explode" that's a hint? The "...pretty cool"? Or both?

If it's just the "explode" part, then either fireball or Larian's brand new Barrelmancer class.
If both, maybe a cold fireball. Or maybe Barbarian (rage=explode with anger) and Monk (keeping cool=calm, patient strikes). Hmmmm...

Don't want to sound like a complete NOOBert but here goes any how. Is there any way to continue playing with characters already started? I don't mean continue playing under Patch 6, but continue playing a character started under Patch 6 and continue playing it under Patch 7?

Unfortunately no. When you lose your saves, you also lose the characters you've made previously under those saves.

If there's a race for which that makes sense, it would be the gith, which are by canon a bunch of lanky, bitter bastards.
It's more questionable that motherfucking "Absolute Unit" Halsin weights basically the same.

Party control in Baldur's Gate 3 is a complete mess that begs to be addressed. SAY NO TO THE TOILET CHAIN
