Baldur's Gate 3 is getting ready for Valentine's Day with a big patch coming next week, likely with the most appropriate content possible on the menu.

As shared on X (formerly Twitter) on the official account of the game, Patch 6 is going to be "hefty" and it includes improved kisses, new camp idle animations, new Legendary Actions in Honour Mode, and plenty of bug fixes.

The full patch notes have not been shared just yet, but they will be published closer to the release. We also don't know the exact date of the update just yet. Of course, you can expect to read about it here when Larian shared more, likely at the beginning of next week.

That being said, Larian did share a look at what we can expect from the improved kisses.

You can see Astarion and Halsin in action in the quick clip below, and no, no bears are involved this time around. Sorry bear fans. 

Baldur's Gate 3 is currently available for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. For the moment, it's only available via digital download. While we still don't know when it'll be coming, a physical Deluxe Edition will be released for all platforms in the first quarter of this year.

Recently, director Sven Vincke himself shared the reason why you won't likely see the game on subscription services for the time being.

That being said, it's definitely worth a purchase having won Game of the at The Game Awards, the Golden Joystick Awards, and the Steam Awards. It's also been the most-played game on Steam Deck since its release.

You can read our review to understand the reason why everyone is so enthusiastic about this massive RPG that has surprised many (at least the many who didn't enjoy its early access, which definitely showcased its potential). We awarded Baldur's Gate 3 will a 9.5 out of 10.
