Fooling around in a black puddle just isn’t as much fun

Larian Studios has grabbed the first awards of the season by sweeping the Golden Joysticks with Baldur’s Gate 3, but that doesn’t mean the development team is resting on its laurels – on the contrary: It’s been revealed that the game’s Xbox Series X|S release date will be announced at The Game Awards 2023 with some fans speculating on the game simply going live during the show, where the CRPG is expected to grab another couple of trophies.

All that’s in the future, though. Today, Larian has published Hotfix #11 for Baldur’s Gate 3, which fixes a very important scene in the game – a romantic encounter with Gale, the charming and powerful wizard from Waterdeep. A bug caused said scene to take place in a puddle of black void, and that is kind of a mood killer, even for a wizard used to some weird stuff. Thankfully, players can now enjoy the environment of the scene as much as the presence of Gale.

You can check out the full Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix #11 patch notes below.
