Baldur's Gate 3 Mod Support Is Coming To Consoles

"We love our modding community and we want to support them."


Official mod support for Baldur's Gate 3 is currently in the works, developer Larian Studios has confirmed, and better yet, it will be cross-platform and available on consoles.

The news comes from Larian Studios' director of publishing Michael Douse on X (formerly Twitter), where he said work is currently underway on cross-platform mod support. The developer typically doesn't make early announcements like this until things are closer to being ready, he said, but made an exception this time around. As it currently stands, mods for Baldur's Gate 3 are only available on PC via sites like Nexus Mods.

"We've been working on a robust cross-platform plan for mod support to be released later in year," Douse said. "We love our modding community and we want to support them. It's coming."

The wording of Douse's post makes it a little unclear if players can expect the entire mod support system to be coming this year or if Larian's plan for mod support will be announced this year. GameSpot has reached out to Larian for clarification.

Douse went on to say in a follow-up post that its mod support system "still requires work" and needs to be tested, and that he realizes "it sucks when the game is updated and mods break." With that in mind, Larian's community team will start to reach out and work with modders to help prevent future issues, he said.

In a post on the game's official Discord server, Larian community strategist WombatMedic said the team is working with platform holders on a pipeline that will allow mod creators to release mods across different platforms, and will include support for mods pertaining to "classes, UI, customization, spells, and certain assets and game mechanics." The game's next big patch, something WombatMedic said is still months away, will include the "initial stages of modding support."

WombatMedic, too, noted player frustration over the fact that the game's frequent patches often end up breaking mods, as was the case with Baldur's Gate 3's recent Patch 6.

"We know this sucks, we know you want to play with mods, and we want to make this right," WombatMedic said.

Baldur's Gate 3 Patch 6 released on February 16 and improved the critically acclaimed RPG's kissing animations, as well made some smart changes to dismissing party members and introduced new idle animations. Larian recently added another prestigious award to its trophy collection, with Baldur's Gate 3 taking home Game of the Year at the 27th annual DICE Awards.
