Larian put out a new Hotfix for Baldur’s Gate 3 today. The most notable changes are the ability to customize hirelings using the Magic Mirror that was added in the last update, as well as the ability to use the same Magic Mirror to change your custom character’s name. In addition to these very reflective changes, this Hotfix also comes with several bugfixes, including one where companions kept their underwear on during intimate scenes even with nudity enabled. I’m glad Larian has their priorities in order.
Now, without further ado, here is the complete change list for Hotfix #9 for Baldur’s Gate 3.
