Baldur’s Gate 3 Developer Suggests Taking PS5s Offline as Temporary Fix for ‘Sudden Crashes’

Larian Studios, the developer behind the critically acclaimed game Baldur’s Gate 3, has recently offered a temporary solution for PlayStation 5 players who have been experiencing sudden crashes while playing the game. In a post from the official Baldur’s Gate 3 game account on X, Larian Studios acknowledged the issue and recommended that affected players disconnect their PS5 consoles from the internet until the root cause of the problem is identified.

The problem, as stated by Larian Studios, seems to be tied to the PlayStation Network (PSN). While the developer investigates the cause of the crashes, taking the PS5 offline has been suggested as a workaround. This has prompted mixed reactions from the player community, with some expressing frustration over disrupted online campaigns, while others appreciate the temporary solution and the assurance that their save files won’t be affected.

The release of Baldur’s Gate 3 on PS5 earlier this month was highly anticipated by fans of the RPG franchise. While the game delivered impressive graphics on par with ultra settings on PC, it also encountered its fair share of issues. One notable problem was the performance of local split-screen, particularly when players ventured into different parts of a city during Act 3 of the game’s expansive story.

However, Larian Studios has been actively addressing these issues and plans to release the third major patch for Baldur’s Gate 3 on September 21. This update will not only introduce full Mac support but is also expected to bring a host of other updates and fixes. Additionally, the developer is working on implementing crossplay support, allowing PS5 players to engage in cooperative campaigns with PC players. However, the specific release date for this feature has yet to be announced.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has received widespread acclaim, with IGN awarding it a perfect score of 10/10. The game has been praised for its intricate characters, captivating story, polished presentation, and tactical combat mechanics. To help players make the most of their journey through this Dungeons & Dragons inspired adventure, IGN offers comprehensive guides and interactive maps.
