Is it possible to romance multiple companions in Baldur’s Gate 3?

The answer to whether you can romance multiple companions in Baldur’s Gate 3 is yes. However, there are a few complications that you will run into while trying to get into multiple romantic relationships. Most characters in the game are not fond of multiple romantic partners.

This means they will get angry will once you deepen the bond with someone, and the other characters will break apart from you. There are only two known multi-companion relationships that are possible:

  • Shadowheart + Halsin
  • Astarion + Halsin

This is because Halsin is the only character that is fine with polyamory. Other characters like Shadowheart, Asterion, Karlach, and others do not get along with each other, especially if you trying to build romantic relations with all of them.

Therefore, chances are you will end up failing the romance with other characters while you are trying to build one. This is definitely a problem as the game allows it, but they have also made it restrictive in some way.

Additionally, you can romance the Drow Twins: Sorn and Nym Orlith once you meet during Act 3. Players will not only be allowed to sleep with both, but if they already are in a romantic relationship with Astarion, Shadowheart or Halsin, they’ll be able to experience a foursome (or even fivesome) with them.
