If you – and your other 800,000 cohorts – have successfully managed to drag yourself away from the stupendously entertaining Baldur’s Gate 3 to read this, congratulations! You’ll be thrilled to learn your penis is finally safe from prying eye thanks to developer Larian’s second major hotfix release, which, along with winging its wangs away, comes with 300+ other fixes.
Baldur’s Gate 3’s wang clipping issue does, admittedly, appear to be something of an edge case, only affecting penises C and D, and only for characters wearing certain githyanki clothing. Even so, penises should now be safely tucked away after today’s update, doubly so given Larian says hotfix #2 also restores underpants that had unfortunately gone astray, unintentionally vacating the nether regions of male gnome sorcerers.
The vast majority of other fixes included in today’s update are perhaps not quite so exciting – although the removal of the game’s version number from beneath the minimap is certainly welcome, as is the addition of more multiplayer servers and server scaling support.
Full details – and a message from Larian thanking fans for helping make Baldur’s Gate 3 one of Steam’s ten most popular games of all time – can be found in the accompanying patch notes. “There’s work to be done on the road to the PlayStation 5 launch on 6th September,” the studio adds, noting it’s still “busy working away on squashing some of the remaining bugs and issues that have come up” since the game’s hugely successful release last week.
As you might have heard, we’re taking our time with Larian’s vast, sumptuous RPG to ensure we get our review right, but, until its arrival, you might enjoy some of Eurogamer’s other thoughts on Baldur’s Gate 3, including Bertie celebrating its embracing of dice and Digital Foundry’s early technical appraisal of its innards.
