Baldur's Gate 3 Patch 4 Will Be Around Soon, Previous Saves Will Be Lost

Baldur's Gate 3 next update will remove your old saves, but you can choose not to play on the new version.

February 12, 2021

After over four months since the launch of Baldur’s Gate 3, Larian Studios revealed in a pre-patch announcement that the fourth patch of the game will be available soon for all the players. Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 4 changelog is yet to be revealed, but the developers did mention that the new update will remove your old saves, though you have the choice to play on the older version if you don’t want to lose your progress. This, simply, is an indication that the upcoming patch will bring big changes to the game.

Larian Studios is supposed to officially announce Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 4 news on an upcoming Panel from Hell 2 stream that will go live on February 17 at 10 am PT. The stream will feature principal rules designer of Dungeons & Dragons Jeremy Crawford, Creative Director Swen Vincke and guests Nick Pechenin, David Walgrave and more.


If you are planning to stay away from Patch 4 for a while and continue your adventure in your current saves, make sure to follow the steps below to play the game on Patch 3:

  • Right click on the game in your Steam library
  • Select properties
  • Click the BETAS tab
  • In the list under “Select the beta you would like to opt in to”, select patch3
  • Close the properties menu

If you first need to know about the upcoming content in Patch 4 before deciding on whether to continue your current playthrough or start a new one, make sure to disable the automatic update of your games before the patch arrives.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available on PC for $59.99 as an early access game. Currently, there is no information on when the full version of the game will be released, and whether it hit the other platforms such as consoles or not.
