The RPG epic Baldur’s Gate III is currently in Early Access and is still being developed. This is now particularly noticeable in the next patch, because this makes previous saved games unusable.
Are you already busy playing Baldur’s Gate III in Early Access? Then you should be aware of the imminent consequences due to the upcoming next update, because this obviously involves more fundamental changes.
As Larian Studios confirmed in advance, the previous save versions can no longer be used after the installation of Patch # 4 of the Early Access version. If you want to keep the game version up-to-date, you will have to forego your previous progress and have to start again – a circumstance that you unfortunately have to live with in early access times until the full version is reached.
The developers also point out the possibility that you at least get the option to continue to gamble with the old version. In this case, you can continue to gamble with your previous save levels. At the same time, you do without the apparently more fundamental and comprehensive changes in the new update.
A specific patch log was initially still owed as part of the advance notice, so that we cannot say at this point exactly what will happen in the update. Details will be given in a stream on February 17th at 7:00 p.m. German time. In this, Dungeons & Dragons’ rule designer Jeremy Crawford, Creative Director Swen Vincke and guests Nick Pechenin and David Walgrave will speak.
If you are already aware of the fact that you want to continue to play your previous saves based on Patch # 3, you have to take the following steps:
- Right click on the game in your Steam library
- Select properties
- Click the BETAS tab
- In the list under “Select the beta you would like to opt in to”, select patch3
- Close the properties menu
