is continuing along its merry way through early access with patch three called “Inspiration, Freedom & Pacifism” that will address feedback from players like an overabundance of fire and nitpicky companions. This is the first of the early access patches that will after you update, as Larian have warned. Here’s what’s new and changed in patch three.
There are quite a few changes and adjustments, a big one being that Larian have chosen to tone down the prevalence of fire surfaces. I tend toabout all the fire in Larian’s chaotic combat but I admit it’s been a while since I played Divinity: Original Sin 2. I might be less enthused if I’d more recently suffered accidental immolation. Larian say that in just the past week, players have died 78,293 times by fire. Yeah, that’s a lot. They’ve toned down cantrip spells like Fire Bolt which can still ignite flammable surfaces but won’t create a surface of its own upon impact.
I wonder if those clever speedrunners will still be able toafter this new update.
Baldur’s Gate 3 launched in early access on October 6th and Larian have estimated that it will likely be at least a year before the full launch.
