Patch 3 went stay for Baldur’s Gate 3 on September 22, so gamers have had a superb few days attempting it out and seeing what adjustments 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 model, you are able to do that!
Though, not everyone seems to be pleased with Patch 3. Considering that Patch 2 went down a deal with, introducing an improved ending for Karlach and Wither’s Wardrobe of Wayward Friends, 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 many fellow gamers agreed.
The reddit publish 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. This implies that while you dismiss a companion, all of their loot is piled into your participant character’s stock.
This may appear helpful at first, but it surely 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. Previously, you can reassign companions and their stock could be intact – weapons and all – so you can crack on with the search at hand.
In addition to shared stashes being a little bit of an issue, two extra issues famous on Reddit have confirmed to be a bit of annoying, additionally. When enjoying the sport this morning, it’s clear to see that conversations now concentrate on the participant character – Tav – always. You can now not see the expressions of companions within the background, which whereas a minor bug (if not supposed!), 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. While 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.
As effectively as the problems outlined above, gamers are reporting much more bugs. Supposedly, as I haven’t been capable of 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. Again, this has been reported by some gamers, not all, so that you would possibly nonetheless be capable of proceed your marketing campaign and not using a hitch.
This is way from all the points reported, both. Apparently, nudity is being censored in some scenes even when the ‘Show 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 have now acquired to present Larian Studios some credit score for a way shortly it has beforehand been capable of squash bugs and usually tackle the issues, and hopes, of followers. We can now solely hope that the developer hears everybody’s issues concerning Patch 3 and dishes out a hotfix quickly.
Have you performed Baldur’s Gate 3’s Patch 3 but? If so, have you ever been going through any of the problems outlined above? Let us know!
