- Despite the glitches, Baldur’s Gate 3 remains highly anticipated and successful, with potential for future expansions to provide more content for players.
A Baldur’s Gate 3 player has shown off an extremely cursed bug in the game, that appears to make characters look horrifying. Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the most popular games of the year, and even a frontrunner nominee at The Game Awards 2023. However, glitches like this show the game isn’t quite perfect.
In a game as ambitious as Baldur’s Gate 3, some bugs are to be expected. It’s a branching narrative game where many players will have different experiences from others. For a studio of Larian’s size, it will always be difficult to polish fully. Ever since the game was first released in August, gamers have been sharing the many strange glitches they’ve found in the game. There was even a massive loot bug in Baldur’s Gate 3 that changed how co-op games were played. While Larian has been vigilant with patching the game so far, there will always be a new bug just around the corner with a game as complex as Baldur’s Gate 3.
This particular bug was posted to Reddit by user SBStratus, with a gallery showcasing some truly cursed Baldur’s Gate 3 characters, mouths agape. It’s a sight to behold, and was almost certainly not Larian’s original intention for characters like Shadowheart and Minthara. Unfortunately, the user didn’t elaborate on how the bug actually occurred, so for now it seems it will remain an extremely bizarre mystery – at least until Larian fixes it.
Gamers in the thread were confused by the images, with one even claiming that ‘The Minthara pics could be used for a creepypasta.’ Others even speculated that this could be the result of a Baldur’s Gate 3 mod gone wrong, although that does seem unlikely given there’s no indication that mods were used for these images.
Despite a few interesting glitches, the hype around Baldur’s Gate 3 remains massive online. The game has captured the imagination of RPG fans in a way that few titles have for a long time, rewarded with massive sales and critical acclaim. Larian Studios continues to update the game with huge patches and smaller hotfixes. It remains to be seen what the future holds for Baldur’s Gate 3, although it’s hard not to imagine the potential for expansions, especially given the game’s success. Hopefully, Larian doesn’t keep its cards close to its chest for too much longer and gives gamers more content for Baldur’s Gate 3.
