Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 7 Unveils Dark Endings

Published on April 19th, 2024

Baldur’s Gate 3 is getting a new update soon, called patch 7. It will bring in some new endings for those who prefer darker choices, like a dark sun.

Larian Studios, the developer behind Baldur’s Gate 3, has shared more details about this upcoming update.

It mentioned in a post on Steam that Patch 7 will include better endings for evil routes in the game, making your darkest playthroughs even more sinister.

It also assured players that this update will cater to both Durge and non-Durge players.

Sneak Peek: New Endings

They also shared two clips to give players an idea of what to expect.

Clip 1: Dark Magic

In the first clip, we see a figure, likely the default Dark Urge, standing before a group of kneeling individuals and using powerful magic by snapping their fingers. Then, it switches to a scene showing the victims in pain.

Clip 2: Mysterious Atmosphere

The second clip is more mysterious but creates a strong atmosphere. It shows the default Dark Urge walking against a backdrop of a red sky with the sun obscured, surrounded by bones and body parts.

Exploring Dark Paths

In the realm of making morally questionable choices, the Dark Urge Origin character is an obvious option, being naturally inclined towards violence. However, the new endings aren’t limited to this character alone.

Larian Studios has made it clear that these improvements will also be available to players who didn’t choose the Dark Urge Origin, meaning characters like Karlach or a custom Tav could also experience these darker endings.

Ultimately, Baldur’s Gate 3 is a game where players shape their own story, so no matter which path is taken, there’s no wrong way to reach the conclusion.

Enhancing The Conclusion

The upcoming major update for Baldur’s Gate 3 is introducing additional evil ending choices to the game.

Larian Studios has provided a sneak peek at some of these new additions.

The conclusion of the story has been a focal point throughout the game’s patches, with the epilogue receiving updates and new possibilities in previous updates.

Ensuring a satisfying conclusion is especially crucial for a sprawling adventure like Baldur’s Gate 3, where players can invest numerous hours before reaching the end credits.

New Musical Score Unveiled

Adding to the anticipation surrounding Patch 7 is the revelation that these new endings will be accompanied by fresh music composed by Borislav Slavov, the mastermind behind the game’s soundscapes.

One of these compositions, titled “March of Darkness,” has already been teased on the official Larian Studios YouTube channel.

With its ominous tones, it’s bound to heighten excitement as players anticipate its integration into the game.

Awaiting The Unveiling

While the release date for Patch 7 remains undisclosed, the forthcoming update is poised to make a significant impact whenever it arrives, promising both new content and enhanced gameplay experiences for players to immerse themselves in.
