Baldur’s Gate 3 has a secret interaction featuring Karlach in which she breaks the fourth wall. In this rare conversation, Karlach speaks directly to the player, rather than to their Baldur’s Gate 3 character.
It is no exaggeration to say the cast of Baldur’s Gate 3 has stolen the hearts of many fans. Among the Origin characters, Karlach has been a particular hit among players–so much so that one of Baldur’s Gate 3’s recent patches expanded her epilogues.
Baldur’s Gate 3 fan and content creator Chubblot recently discovered a secret conversation with Karlach that few players would have expected. When the conversation begins, she asks to try a technique she learned from her time in Avernus. However, when she begins to speak, she turns and looks directly at the camera, rather than towards the character, and begins speaking to the player. Karlach almost seems like a different person as she seemingly recognizes she’s in a video game before she becomes a mouthpiece for Larian Studios to ask the player if they are having fun in Baldur’s Gate 3, after which she returns to her normal self as if nothing happened.
Chubblot used a back-end trick to trigger this particular conversation, so players aren’t quite sure how to get it to happen naturally within the game yet. That said, Samantha Beart, the voice actor for Karlach in Baldur’s Gate 3, reposted the scene on her personal Twitter, teasing that she would talk more about it once someone found out how to trigger the interaction organically. This implies the scene is actually in the game somewhere, and that players just need to look a little harder to find it.
Needless to say, players enjoyed this fourth-wall-breaking Karlach easter egg in Baldur’s Gate 3. Chubblot’s YouTube video showing off the scene received over 400,000 views in just a few days, with the video going viral across social media. Fans got a kick out of the carefree, fun-loving Karlach of all people being the one to break the fourth wall, and can’t wait to find out more about the scene as more information comes out.
In the meantime, Baldur’s Gate 3 is gearing up for its third major patch. Its previous updates have fixed bugs and improved performance across the board, and has even added new dialogue and context to improve the stories of certain characters. Baldur’s Gate 3 has floored fans with how fun the game is, and with continued support and an Xbox release in the near future, Larian’s CRPG has a real shot at winning Game of the Year for 2023.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is out now for PC and PS5 with an Xbox Series X/S version in development.
