Larian Studios’ latest patch for Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available for PC and PS5. It adds the Magic Mirror, an item in Camp that allows players to change their appearance, voice and pronouns and full support for Mac systems.
While the Magic Mirror is usable as many times as one would like, you can’t change race, subrace and body type. Hirelings and Origin Characters also can’t be modified, nor are any changes to one’s looks occurring due to in-game decisions. Other fixes include long-awaited improvements to the Lower City’s performance in Act 3, though Larian promises more to come.
The DualSense will now match colors of elemental damage types more accurately, while armor dye is more visible and intense than before. Other interesting fixes include Shadowheart turning blonde when wearing a hat and face tattoos disappearing when you zoom out.
Check out some of the patch notes below and full notes here. There are spoilers, so beware. Stay tuned for news on further updates in the coming weeks.
