Baldur’s Gate 3 update 3 patch notes – Magic Mirror, Mac support and PS5 pad

So big it had to be delayed, Baldur’s Gate 3 patch 3 has finally gone live on PlayStation 5 and Steam. As you can see from the patch notes below, the new Baldur’s Gate 3 update introduces the Magic Mirror item, which gives players the ability to change their character’s appearance within the game. This includes appearance, voice, pronouns and nether region, but not race and body type. The new update also adds support for Baldur’s Gate 3 on Mac, which means Apple users can finally start exploring the mesmerising world of D&D. Elsewhere, developer Larian has made the colours on the PS5 controller more closely match elemental damage types. Needless to say, there are also a ton of bug fixes and performance improvements, not to mention balance changes and gameplay tweaks. It’s a big update, so without further ado, check out the Baldur’s Gate 3 update 3 patch notes below.
