Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix #19 – Don’t Crash the Love

Baldur’s Gate 3 released Hotfix #19 today, fixing several issues that have been popping up since Patch 6 released about a week ago. This marks the second Hotfix in less than a week dedicated entirely to bug fixes, an apparent necessity after Patch 6 introduced several bugs that the community quickly noted.

On their Steam Community post released alongside the Hotfix, Larian Studios also added that “each new patch or hotfix has the potential to become incompatible with your favourite mods,” confirming that they are aware of a common community complaint that Patch 6 “broke” many mods. While this is unfortunate, Larian does urge players still having trouble launching or playing the game after Patch 6 to uninstall their mods.

With that out of the way, though, lets look at the various fixes introduced in Baldur’s Gate 3’s Hotfix #19.
