Good news, Baldur’s Gate 3 is set to get “robust, cross-platform” official mod support this year

If you like the idea of playing Baldur’s Gate 3 with mods – and why wouldn’t you, even if they can currently sometimes be a source of post-patch issues – then you’ll probably be glad to hear that Larian’s currently working on “a robust, cross-platform plan for [BG3] mod support” that it hopes to release later this year.

Yup, no matter whether you’re in the mood for some fresh character classes or a bit of extra companion chatter, mods have been delivering that for plenty of PC players since the game came out, but it looks like Larian could well be planning to let console players in on the fun in some fashion. The studio’s also continuing to whack the minor in-game issues that’ve popped up for some players following the arrival of Patch 6.

In a tweet following the deployment of Hotfix 19, Larian’s publishing director, Michael Douse, wrote: “We generally don’t talk about things [until] they’re ready, but as you may have read, we’re making an exception. We’ve been working on a robust, cross-platform plan for mod support to be released later in [the] year. We love our modding community and we want to support them. It’s coming.”
