Larian Studios Warns Early Access Players About Saves

Larian Studios has issued a public service announcement (PSA) that demands your attention regarding early access save files. If you are among the devoted players who have been exploring the game’s early access version, it’s time to act before the official launch on August 3.

In a recent tweet, Larian Studios emphasized the significance of tidying up your existing Early Access save files. The studio strongly advises players to head into the game before the official release and manually delete all existing save files. This crucial step aims to avoid any potential unintended conflicts that may arise during the highly anticipated full-game launch.

PSA: Full post tomorrow, but for Baldur’s Gate 3 players with existing Early Access saves, we ask that prior to August 3,  launch the game, and delete all save files to avoid unintended conflicts at launch. Also, remove any mods and ensure they do not automatically re-download.

Moreover, the developer’s further caution players to remove any installed mods from their game before the big day. Ensuring that mods are not set to automatically re-download is of utmost importance. This proactive measure will help maintain a smooth and seamless transition into the final release, avoiding any potential incompatibilities or disruptions.
