Baldur’s Gate 3 – Forging the Arcane is the game’s biggest update yet

The sixth content update for Baldur’s Gate 3 is here and it’s massive!

Forging the Arcane adds the new Sorcerer class, and a whole new region – Grymforge – to explore.

Having the Sorcerer, of course, introduces new spells, like Enlarge, Cloud of Daggers, and Horrific Visage.

There’s also the Metamagic signature ability which can tweak spells in the midst of combat, such as adjusting their range or duration.

Sorcerer’s even have two sub-classes – Wild Magic and Draconic Bloodline – each playing very differently from the other.

As for Grymforge, it’s a place filled with halls, chambers, and rivers of lava. A new story arc includes additional cinematics, along with new combat and characters.

Other big adjustments include a huge graphical overhaul, making substantial improvements to things like lighting and visual depth.

Forging the Arcane is available now as a free content update for Baldur’s Gate 3.
