That’s right, Larian Studios is back with another major update for turn-based cRPG Baldur’s Gate 3. The long-awaited patch 7 introduces absolutely frenzy: the new Barbarian class with two subclasses – Berserker and Wildheart, in addition to a plethora of new content.

Let’s dive right in and see what Patch 7 & Community Update 15 offer for new and returning players! Follow the links to the official blog post reveals to find out all there is.

In the Community Update #15 post, the developers have also added that they expect BG3 to release out of the Early Access in 2023:

“Early Access continues to be a key part of Larian’s development process, allowing us to iterate and improve with feedback from our players to make the best game possible.

Our internal goal post for release is a quality bar rather than a date. A ton of progress has been made towards that quality bar over the past year in Early Access, but we know many players are waiting for an actual date. That date will come when we’re even closer to meeting our goal, but right now our expectation is that Baldur’s Gate 3 will release out of Early Access in 2023.”

Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 7 Highlights Include:

  • New playable Barbarian class with two subclasses – Berserker and Wildheart
  • HUD UI overhaul, the addition of brand new hotbar that allows players to thematically collect common actions, class-specific actions, and spells and items into ‘Decks’
  • Brand new Character Sheets and Party Panel views
  • Search filters for items, weapons and abilities
  • Thrown weapons like Daggers, Javelins, Handaxes and more. Improvised weapons – you can now attack by using furniture, instruments, animals, limbs, and NPCs as Improvised Melee Weapons
  • Expanded throwing: You can now throw objects or characters that weigh up to three times your Strength ability score. The range of the throw scales based on your Strength and the object’s weight. Rile enemies up by throwing a badger at them or yeet a goblin to test their aerodynamics
  • New music, spell-casting animations, improved cinematic pacing and visuals, new animation and much more.

Additionally, the patch introduces balance changes and bug fixes as well as a variety of gameplay tweaks such as some NPCs now being barbarians and acting accordingly.


Gather your party, and return to the Forgotten Realms in a tale of fellowship and betrayal, sacrifice and survival, and the lure of absolute power.

Mysterious abilities are awakening inside you, drawn from a Mind Flayer parasite planted in your brain. Resist, and turn darkness against itself. Or embrace corruption, and become ultimate evil.
