Baldur's Gate 3 Update Patch Notes: Larian Reveals Cinematic Fixes And Which Characters Players Romanced The Most

And the dog is living the dream, really.

Baldur's Gate 3, Larian Studio's long-awaited RPG, is finally here - or at least, in Early Access.

Another patch has rolled out, and it brings with it some more fun stats about what players have achieved during their time with this first slice of the game.

Baldur's Gate 3 Patch Notes

Last time we got a patch, the team told us to be more imaginative about our custom characters, but this time around Larian is here to tell us about how many times we've pet the dog.

Yep, players have given the woofer a fuss 400,000 times – lucky pup.

We also got some fun romance stats, including Gale being the most romanced character (he's a bit of a heartthrob, clearly).

He was chosen by 33% of players, while 31% of players opted for Shadowheart instead.

Meanwhile, 1.37% decided to sleep alone.

Other fun stats include 26.3% of players sucking a toe (which "If you haven’t got there yet, you’ll know when you see it", Larian says) and 5.87% of players stealing the ring.

Finally, if you made it to the Underdark and jumped to your death, don't worry, you're in good company; 40.79% of players did the same thing.

Check out the full notes below, as per the game's Steam page.
