Update: 8/18/2023 10:30 a.m. ET: Larian Studios has reissued hotfix 4 as of August 17.

If you’ve played any amount of Baldur’s Gate 3 lately, you might’ve noticed how frequently the game is getting updates. Well, it turns out that a recent one has caused a bit of an issue, prompting developer Larian Studios to roll back the patch and issue a temporary hotfix to fix the problems caused by the original one.

The most recent update, hotfix 4, sought to address a variety of issues to mitigate crashes, improve the overall stability of the game, and to solve issues like player resources not restoring correctly after a certain point in the game. Other issues plaguing the game saw players disappear when reconnecting in split-screen co-op, complications with servers on GOG, issues with players getting stuck in the middle of a Long Rest, and an apparent issue where Cruel Sting could result in infinite damage. The hotfix launched ahead of a much larger patch expected in the near future. But it turns out, the fix for these problems wasn’t as smooth as it should’ve been.

Your Baldur’s Gate 3 save might be broken right now, but don’t panic

As Larian stated in its tweet that while hotfix 4 was rolled back due to issues, folx who saved the game after it deployed on August 16, 6:40 p.m. ET, won’t be able to load their current save.

In a follow-up tweet, however, Larian stated that hope is around the corner.
