The first new location for the Early Access
Larian Studios has announced another Panel From Hell for Baldur’s Gate 3, its currently in-Early Access RPG. And during the stream, they’ve confirmed they will be deep-diving into the upcoming Patch 6, including its new area.
The upcoming Patch 6 will be adding the first new location to Baldur’s Gate 3 since it launched in Early Access last year. From the title alone, we can assume that the Panel From Hell: Grymforge will center on a location called Grymforge.

Larian also confirmed it was showing off its Sorcerer class at the recent EGX event, so it seems like a lot could be in store for the next patch for Baldur’s Gate 3.
First revealed during a Google Stadia event, Baldur’s Gate 3 has been in steady development at Larian Studios. The team has been using a model similar to its approach for Divinity: Original Sin 2, with a slice of the full game available in Early Access for early testing and building up over time.
When I spoke with Larian founder Swen Vincke earlier this year about how progress on Baldur’s Gate 3 has been going, he said they had a pretty good overview of what’s left to do. As for when it will all be done, and Baldur’s Gate 3 will be launched into v1.0, that’s still in the works.
For now, it’s exciting to have some more content coming in at some point. Seeing how the first section of the game that’s currently in Early Access will expand will be interesting to see, as well as whatever hints may get dropped at how things carry forward in the full game.
The Baldur’s Gate Panel From Hell: Grymforge will air on Oct. 14 at 9 a.m. PT.
