Baldur’s Gate 3’s latest update is 30GB, adds a new playable epilogue

The latest update for Baldur’s Gate 3 has been released.

Patch 5 is 30GB in size and contains a new epilogue designed to “provide a well-deserved sense of closure with your allies”.

It also includes two new play modes called Honour Mode and Custom Mode.

Performance has been improved, particularly in Act III, and dynamic resolution has been added for the PS5 version.

The full patch notes are extremely long and contain numerous bug fixes and tweaks, but developer Larian has also provided highlights for those looking for the key additions.

The studio also warns that even though the update is 30GB, it requires around 130GB of free space to install on some formats.

If players don’t have that amount of space free, Larian recommends that they uninstall the game and reinstall it, as the reinstalled version will have the update applied already.
