Patch 3 went reside for Baldur's Gate 3 on September 22, so gamers have had a very good few days making an attempt it out and seeing what modifications Larian Studios has made to the sport this time round.

The patch launched full help on Mac units, and the long-awaited Magic Mirror that lastly lets gamers change the looks of their character in-game. So, whether or not you need your Tav to look extra aged and haggard as time goes on, or just fancy a change in type, you are able to do that!

Although, not everyone seems to be pleased with Patch 3. Contemplating that Patch 2 went down a deal with, introducing an improved ending for Karlach and Wither’s Wardrobe of Wayward Mates, this comes as fairly the shock. Alas, two days in the past, one Reddit consumer took to the Baldur’s Gate 3 subreddit to share a prolonged listing of qualms with the patch, and plenty of fellow gamers agreed.

The reddit put up particulars lots of points. Some being minor aesthetic bugs, and others being much more substantial. For instance, loot is now shared between you and your companions. Which means that if you dismiss a companion, all of their loot is piled into your participant character's stock.

This might sound helpful at first, nevertheless it actually is a hindrance greater than something. Everytime you determine to modify companions in Baldur’s Gate 3, you now should dedicate a while to stock sorting, too. Beforehand, you can reassign companions and their stock can be intact – weapons and all – so you can crack on with the search at hand.

Along with shared stashes being a little bit of an issue, two extra issues famous on Reddit have confirmed to be a bit annoying, additionally. When taking part in the sport this morning, it’s clear to see that conversations now concentrate on the participant character – Tav – always. You may now not see the expressions of companions within the background, which whereas a minor bug (if not meant!), is just a bit bit unhappy. I don’t find out about you, however I loved seeing Lae’zel scowl or Gale do a goofy smile in response to my dialogue decisions.

On high of that, it appears that evidently one thing has modified with facial animations completely. Whereas beforehand on level, it appears that evidently one thing is simply plain lacking when partaking in conversations now. Facial expressions are merely not as expressive as they as soon as have been, and it’s unusual to witness.

In addition to the problems outlined above, gamers are reporting much more bugs. Supposedly, as I haven’t been in a position to check this but, each Gale and Wyll are bugged. Gale is seemingly repeating himself rather a lot, whereas Wyll’s questline can't be accomplished in Act 3. Once more, this has been reported by some gamers, not all, so that you would possibly nonetheless be capable of proceed your marketing campaign with out a hitch.

That is removed from the entire points reported, both. Apparently, nudity is being censored in some scenes even when the ‘Present Nudity’ setting is enabled, some characters don’t end their traces earlier than dialogue carries on, and doorways are mentioned to be bugged. That mentioned, I didn’t even have any points with doorways this morning, so it appears that evidently these complaints are on a case-by-case foundation.

With all this in thoughts, we've received to provide Larian Studios some credit score for a way rapidly it has beforehand been in a position to squash bugs and customarily handle the issues, and hopes, of followers. We are able to now solely hope that the developer hears everybody's issues relating to Patch 3 and dishes out a hotfix quickly.

Have you ever performed Baldur’s Gate 3’s Patch 3 but? In that case, have you ever been going through any of the problems outlined above? Tell us!
