Just yesterday, Larian Studios indicated there will be more content added, specifically an Epilogue “extravaganza.” This would likely be some content to expand on the ending of the game your character, and your story. The sheer size of 30GB is massive, and the amount of additional content and features added to one of the most popular games of the year.

BG3 Honour Mode

Honour mode, a hardcore playstyle from Divinity Original Sin 2 where your save game would automatically delete upon death, is eagerly anticipated. This was confirmed and is currently available in game with Patch 5. You can find more about the specifics for Honour Mode here. In addition, you can earn a new golden dice for completing this mode and it’s surely to be the most important piece of content for hardcore players of BG3.
