Larian’s RPG Baldur’s Gate 3 is out now on PC and it’s putting up huge numbers right out of the gate. Not everything is perfect, though, and the first hot fix is coming very soon.
Larian boss Swen Vincke said on Twitter that the first hot fix is “cooking in the kitchen now.” The hope is to launch the update today, August 4, so keep checking back for that. The developer did not share any details on what the hot fix addresses, however.
Vincke also reflected on the release of Baldur’s Gate 3, thanking fans for their love and support. “It brought a tear to many eyes and it’s incredibly motivating for all of us. We can’t thank you enough,” Vincke said.
Thank you everyone for all the love and support. It brought a tear to many eyes and it’s incredibly motivating for all of us. We can’t thank you enough.
That said – Hotfix 1 is cooking in the kitchen and we hope to get it out today.
