Based Temple of Elemental Evil (so far the best implementation of D&D turn-based combat in a videogame) had a party of 5 user-generated characters that could expand up to 8 (with enough charisma) by hiring NPCs across the adventure.
It was glorious.

"Six is outdated" is one of these baseless claims that came out of nowhere.

Then again, as I said several times across the half dozen of threads on this same topic, before even beginning to discuss any party expansion Larian should be in desperate need to address their atrocious control scheme and throw the goddamn chain/unchain system in the gutter.

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