Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix Fixes Progression Blockers, Crashes and More

A blocker occurring after a Long Rest, a flashback teleporting the Dark Urge to the Lower City, and more have also been fixed.

Larian Studios has released a new hotfix for Baldur’s Gate 3, fixing several progression blockers and issues causing crashes. Those who found the romance scene with Gale seemingly occurring in the void should see it fixed.

Other notable fixes include soaps from save games before Patch 4 working. The game should no longer freeze after reactions to multi-projectile spells or crash after an attack reaction to a dead creature. A blocker that could occur when attempting a Long Rest is also gone. A flashback causing the Dark Urge to teleport to the Lower City has also been fixed.

Check out the full hotfix notes below. Larian is aware of Astarion’s kissing animations having issues, and a fix is in the works, so stay tuned for the next update.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available for PC and PS5, with an Xbox Series X/S launch confirmed for December.
