ICYMI, Baldur’s Gate 3 will be getting official mod support down the line, including cross-platform support for consoles.

Larian’s director of publishing Michael Douse described plans for this official support as “robust”, but did not yet give an exact date for when it will arrive – other than to say it was planned for sometime this year.

“We have a system, but it needs to be tested and still requires work,” Douse explained at the time.
