Baldur's Gate 3 is an excellent RPG already, and it's been getting better and better ever since it entered Early Access a little while ago. However, because it's Early Access, it's going to keep getting updates both small and large.
After translating feedback from fans into tangible gameplay adjustments, the latest patch notes are finally here, and there's a lot to digest.
It's also worth noting that the upcoming patch will render all previous save files useless, so that's fun.
If you want to know more about Baldur's Gate 3 latest update, then here's what you need to know.

It's also worth noting that this is going to null your saves, so you'll want to stick to the old version if you want to keep your current save or just disable the updates.
The good news is that the Larian announcement explains how to do both of those things, so we recommend just reading that and following the steps for whichever version you prefer.
