Larian only just released a MASSIVE patch for Baldur's Gate 3, and another is being planned out to come with some "major performance improvements" which sounds exciting - especially for Steam Deck players.
The first patch went live on August 25th, and the patch notes were so long it couldn't fit on Steam. With it addressing over 1,000 bugs like short characters not really being able to smooch properly. That's been addressed now though so Larian say they're bringing back "Short King Summer".
So what's all this about a second patch then? Well, on X (formerly Twitter) Larian Studios posted this:
"Patch 2 is around the corner. It features major performance improvements, many new tweaks & changes, and begins our journey incorporating feedback into Origin Character epilogues, among other major things. Details coming soon."
Given how even on my desktop, certain parts would drop quite a lot in performance, this is good news. We already know they're planning to upgrade to FSR 2.2 as they previously confirmed, but some major performance improvements on top of that are going to be very welcome as it's really rough in many parts on Steam Deck too.
Still easily going to be my GOTY, unless something else particularly amazing appears. Starfield who? How's your play-through going? It's still proving to be a huge game with a peak player count today of 539,576 which is very impressive.
