Larian has told PlayStation 5 owners that all the fixes it’s putting out for the PC version of Baldur’s Gate 3 will carry over to the release version on Sony’s console.
In a tweet (below), Larian director of publishing Michael Douse confirmed all of the improvements and fixes to the Steam hit will be reflected in the PS5 version “and beyond”.
This suggests Larian plans to update Baldur’s Gate 3 on PC and PS5 in lockstep, which is encouraging for console owners. There’s still no word on a release date for the Xbox Series X and S versions, however, thanks to a complex problem surrounding Microsoft’s feature parity policy. You can read all about Larian’s struggle to get Baldur’s Gate 3 running well on Xbox in IGN’s report.
Bumping for visibility. Yeah, all of the improvements and fixes to the game will be reflected in the PlayStation 5 version and beyond. https://t.co/aqrg9uxqLg

Since Baldur’s Gate 3 launched on Steam last week, Larian has released a handful of updates, including one that brought much-needed fixes for genitals and undies, and an emergency hotfix that changed the way personal story databases work because players had maxed them out.
The latest hotfix, 2.1, also reactivated cross-saves ahead of the PS5 launch. Hotfix 3 is “in the oven”, Larian said, and adds further fixes in the near future. Expect those to make the cut, too. The PS5 version of Baldur’s Gate 3 is set to come out September 6.
There’s so much going on in the virtual world of Baldur’s Gate 3, from a community debate about save scumming to players who are convinced they can “fix” Shadowheart.
