Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix #22 – Minthara Come Back (To The Dark Urge)

Hotfix #22 went live for Baldur’s Gate 3 today. The modest update fixes an issue where Minthara would seemingly break up with Dark Urge players after a certain choice in Act 3, as well as fixing some crashes and other simple UI bugs.

More importantly, however, is that Hotfix #22 brings the previous 2 hotfixes (#20 and #21) to Xbox, letting players on the console finally catch up with the most recent patches. This also means that cross-saves between Xbox and PC will be operable again, as the two editions will not align in version number.

Without further ado, here is the full change list for Baldur’s Gate 3’s Hotfix #22.

  • Fixed a crash caused by the game trying to access the duration of a condition on a character with no conditions set.
  • Fixed conditions sometimes trying to get their duration from the source entity instead of the target entity.
  • Fixed some potential internal crashes on Xbox when suspending the game (e.g. when suspending the console or loading another game), causing it to reboot when you went back to it.
  • Improved the messaging for syncing and cross-saving by indicating when a cross-save sync has failed and adding an option to try again. Also prevented the saving and cross-saving messages from appearing for secondary local players.
  • Voice chat will no longer overlap the minimap on split-screen.
  • Fixed the ‘Another Player Is Joining’ pop-up not triggering while the host has a panel open on Xbox, potentially preventing the client from joining.
  • Fixed an issue where legacy dialogue had been enabled unintentionally as part of another line of fixes, in which Minthara would seemingly end a relationship with Dark Urge players who had rejected Bhaal.
  • Made Minthara promise to stop repeating her thoughts about Gale in Act III.
  • Fixed a bug causing you to get perpetually stuck in a dangerous area if you triggered hostilities in the Emerald Grove and then left while it was still a dangerous area.
  • Fixed a rare issue where dialogues would end suddenly when you went to kiss your romantic partner.
  • Fixed a bug causing you to get stuck in combat with the enemies on top of Moonrise Towers if you found a way to sneak into the Mind Flayer Colony.

Larian continues to be on the ball, continuously updating and improving their game, as always. It’s about time my game’s evil Durge/Minthara romance arc got some appreciation, after all.
