Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix 4 Fixes Sleepy Companions


Update: Larian Studios has rolled back Hotfix 4 temporarily as the new build is causing crashes. Baldur’s Gate 3 has been rolled back to Hotfix 3 for the time being. Anyone who has logged in and saved while Hotfix 4 has been live will be unable to load their save and play until Larian fixes the issues and rereleased Hotfix 4.

Orignal Story: Baldur’s Gate 3’s latest update, Hotfix 4, has fixed a number of glitches and issues, including some very sleepy companions. This Hotfix comes as a prelude to Baldur’s Gate 3’s next big update, Patch 1, which is set to include over 1,000 fixes and changes across the entire game.

This hotfix aims to correct a handful of bugs that have caused players to either have faulty encounters or have their progress blocked by bugs. One of the bigger fixes is that players will no longer get stuck during Long-Rest because their companions won’t wake up.

Other changes include giving Isobel, an NPC that needs protection during a specific mission, more health so she doesn’t die as quickly. Another fix properly restores all resources after players complete Act II. A few multiplayer issues, including character disappearing when players disconnect and reconnect during split-screen play and an issue with multiplayer servers not being visible on GOG, are being fixed as well.

Larian has marked a few of these bug fixes as potential spoilers, so all changes, including the spoilers, will be listed below. It was recently announced that preloading for Baldur’s Gate 3 on PS5 will begin soon and anyone who buys the Digital Deluxe edition can access the game two days early.
