Baldur’s Gate 3 adds quality-of-life features and Mac support

Baldur's Gate 3

Baldur’s Gate 3 players can now customize their character through the use of a magic mirror via a new game update.

Here’s a rundown on the new update:

Mac users and chronic character re-creators rejoice! Today’s Baldur’s Gate 3 update brings the full release of the critically acclaimed RPG to Mac, and finally allows players to change their characters’ appearance in-game via the Magic Mirror.

Patch 3 also contains many pages of bug fixes, tweaks and improvements. Does your dog begin to float away when he senses the postman is near? Patch 3’s got a fix for that.

Magic Mirror

The Magic Mirror lives in the party’s camp and allows players to change up their appearance whenever they’d like. There are some restrictions: your appearance, voice, pronouns and nether region can be changed, but race/subrace and body type cannot. Origin characters, hirelings, and full illithids cannot use the Magic Mirror, and any cosmetic modifications that are a consequence of gameplay choices will persist – hag got your eye? swallow any interesting tadpoles lately? There’s no Magic Mirroring those big life decisions away.

Mac Support

Where previously Mac support was limited to Early Access, the full release of Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available to Mac players via Steam.

As with BG3’s launch on PC earlier this year, Early Access saves on Mac will not be compatible with the full version of the game. To minimise potential compatibility issues, Early Access players are encouraged to fully uninstall the Early Access version of Baldur’s Gate 3 and ensure all mods are removed before reinstalling the latest version of Baldur’s Gate 3.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now on Windows PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 5. An Xbox Series X|S port is still planned. You can check out our review here. (We recommend it!)
