Ah, the month of February, the month of love and passion. While most people will be out spending time with their partners and significant others, some of us will be spending time romancing our favorite digital love interests, especially in Baldur's Gate 3. To celebrate February, Larian has finally released the long-awaited Patch 6, which adds a whole new variety of things to the critically acclaimed RPG. From simple Quality-of-Life improvements to some rather more, how should we say, scandalous additions?

Baldur's Gate 3 has been a nonstop powerhouse when it comes to gaming; the RPG was in an extensive early access period and has continued to remain in an overwhelmingly positive rating over on Steam, and now with the most recent patch, Patch 6, things don't seem to be slowing down and players are going to be enjoying all the lovely additions added to Baldur's Gate 3 by Larian for the month of love.

We got a brief look at all the content coming to Patch 6 earlier this week after Larian shared a post on their official Twitter Page. The main highlights of this post were easier companion dismissal, more Legendary Actions for honor mode, more idle animations when in camp, and many Quality-of-Life fixes, but the most notable additions were the addition of new randomized kissing animations from players and their beloved.

Here are a few highlights from the extensive list of all the new additions coming to Patch 6. Please note that the following list will contain spoilers for main story content as well as side quest content:

- You can now dismiss a recruited companion from your party while speaking to the companion you want to replace them with.

- Your partner now has a few different kisses! They're brand new, unique, and randomized - and we’ve also made improvements to how kisses look across the board, particularly for taller and shorter body types.

- Improved the cinematic scenes in the Elfsong Tavern to feel more intimate when you and your romance partner decide your future together after defeating the Netherbrain.

- Reworked the reflection scenes that take place after wrapping up the defeat of the Netherbrain for characters without romantic partners to better match the scenes for those who do have romantic partners, and to bridge the gap into the epilogue.

- If you sit on the stool in Shadowheart's camp corner, she will now react to you with a line based on your relationship with her.

- Added new idle animations for some companions at camp to add a little more depth.

- Characters in the epilogue camp party will now have fitting titles below their names.

- If you romanced Lae'zel, grab a red dragon and saddle up - you can now join her in the rebellion against Vlaakith, even if you are not gith yourself.

- If you Long Rest with only alcohol as camp supplies, you will now get the new Hungover condition for 10 turns.

- Made it possible to dismiss party members during camp nights. Also made it possible to recruit hirelings to a full party - they'll hang around at camp until you need them.

- Jaheira could be in bad shape by the time she arrived at Moonrise Towers since she already had to fight. Now she's smart enough to heal up before she goes there, which we're hoping lets her last at least an additional second in combat.

- Increased the number of valid methods of knocking Minthara out to recruit her.

- You can finally tell Halsin that you found that letter that was sent to Kagha.

- The trade interface got a graphic overhaul, clarifying which character is bartering for the party, what their Persuasion score is, and how much of a discount they're getting for the trade. The feedback when bartering has also been improved to indicate the status of the offer.

- The whole party's inventory is now present in the trade interface, which doesn't require you to switch characters to sell their items from their inventories anymore.

- Camp chests are now integrated into the Camp Inventories UI.

- Added some new lines to Minthara's epilogue dialogue to account for different paths where the player character has partnered up with her.

- Added new dialogues and reactivity for Lae'zel regarding the Githyanki egg from Crèche Y'llek.

- If Gale is a mind flayer in the endgame when returning to Elysium with Mystra, she will now transform him back into a human.

- Rephrased some journal entries to account for NPCs being knocked out instead of killed.

- If you're romancing Shadowheart in Act II, she'll have more banter as you're walking around.

- You can now give Shadowheart a hug when she's crying after losing or saving her parents.

- Gale can now kiss your hand if you agree to marry him. This scene was also improved with a new intro and outro. This scene was also improved with a new intro and outro.

- Added a new version of the kissing scene with Astarion after he Ascends.

- The Dark Urge will now be just as likely to say something aloud as non-Durgey characters. The lines have also been randomized to avoid repetition.

- Characters will now recognize you as the source of their pain when you damage them by dropping braziers or chandeliers on them.

- You can now clean your body and clothes in a fountain in the House of Hope's boudoir. Sometimes it's nice to freshen up before a big event.

- The final warning before the endgame now makes it clear which features will be blocked during the final battle.


Multiplayer

- Karlach can no longer have sex with Minthara if she hasn't had the proper upgrades to her heart yet.

- During an early romance scene with Astarion, he'll no longer mention the tieflings dragging you into 'another mess' if that hasn't actually happened. Yet.

- Dame Aylin now permits all players to behold her radiance in the cutscene when ascending from the Shadowfell rather than just the one who freed her.


Now, it should be noted that this is only a short list of highlights for the month of live and as can be expected for a major patch from Larian, there are a lot more. However, if you want to read through all of them, they’re all on Larian’s site for the world to see
