As covered by PCGamesN, a press release discussing the stream states that the cast will include a mix of real actors and members of the dev team that must follow the direction of Twitch viewers “through brain teasing puzzles and lethal traps as they quest to retrieve an object of incredible value.”
While there’s no official word on what Patch 5 will bring, Larian Studios posted an article stating that patch 5 would be released next week.

Fans on the Baldur’s Gate III Subreddit are rife with speculation on what the next patch will bring, with many hoping for changes to the reaction system and other quality of life changes or balance changes.
Earlier this week, Larian Studios confirmed that Baldur’s Gate III would “for sure” not be leaving Early Access in 2021.
