For PC players, mods can be a saving grace or present ways to trivialize a game’s back-breaking difficulty. These downloadable alterations will also juice up your playthrough, giving you access to new hairstyles or face presets for a character, or provide quality-of-life tweaks to existing game mechanics.
There’s really no shortage of things that mods can do, and in games like Baldur’s Gate 3, many of them can be worthwhile to use.
The best mods for the CRPG will greatly expand the list of spells available, unlock new options for classes, enhance gear progression, and much more. Here’s a list of every mod we believe you should download.
Best mods to spice up and improve your experience for ‘Baldur’s Gate 3:’
Before we dive into this list, keep in mind that you will have to download Mharius’ Full Release Mod Fixer on NexusMods to get a few of the mods we’ll discuss to work.
Furthermore, once you use a mod and save during your playthrough in Baldur’s Gate 3, you must continue using the mod to load that save file properly. The game can become unstable without the mod, so you’ll have to commit to using it and others until the end.
