Baldur's Gate 3's sixth patch will introduce a new playable class and, more importantly, equippable salami, publisher and developer Larian Studios revealed today.
Patch 6, which the studio says is Baldur's Gate 3's "biggest ever," will be detailed in a now-traditional Panel From Hell but, if you happen to be attending EGX in London between October 7 and October 10, you can get an early look at what's coming next for the cRPG.
A new playable class is a notable addition and good enough incentive to start a new playthrough, but the fact that we'll be able to dual-wield salami once Baldur's Gate patch 6 goes live is arguably the flagship feature here.
The update clocks in at "approximately 60GB" and won't be compatible with saves from prior versions of the game. If you want to keep playing using these older saves, you can do so using Steam's beta branches, as detailed in the announcement post. You just won't have access to all the new features.
Patch 6 doesn't have a release date yet, although Larian says it's "almost here," but we should learn more in the coming weeks. Baldur's Gate 3 is available now in Steam Early Access.
