Baldur’s Gate 3 received a new patch – it is intended for those who “clearly angered the gods of the random number generator”
Larian Studios, in a publication on the website of the digital distribution service Steam, announced the release of a patch for the fourth major update of its ambitious role-playing game Baldur’s Gate 3.
Let us remind you that one of the fourth patch innovations was the “weighted die” option, which increases the chances of success in acting up to 85% after the first unsuccessful throw.
It has been almost two months since that update was released, and Larian Studios was able to gather enough feedback on how the mechanic worked to gauge its effectiveness in the community’s eyes.
As it turned out, even after the loosening, the system seems to many to be ruthless: “We saw that the cube was described as strict, damned, unfair, and someone generally called the random number generator pure evil. “
With the release of a new patch, the scale will tilt only in favor of the player when rolling the dice (an unsuccessful skill check is not required in this case). The change will also affect NPCs and enemies, so the difficulty of battles should not be affected.
This [patch] is for all of you (and us), who is a past life clearly angered the gods of the random number generator and doomed themselves to unsuccessful dice rolls at every step,” the developers outlined the target audience of the released patch.
Baldur’s Gate 3 has been in Early Access on PC (Steam, GOG) and Google Stadia since October 2020. Since then, the game has improved markedly; however, according to the head of Larian Studios Swen Vincke, “there is still a lot of work ahead. “
