Baldur’s Gate 3 Hotfix 22 Improves Dialogue, UI and More

Developer Larian Studios has released hotfix 22 for its RPG, Baldur’s Gate 3, which introduces a number of minor improvements for dialogue, UI and some of Minthara’s repeated lines regarding Gale in Act 3 (awkward, we know). The latest hotfix finally brings the Xbox version up to scratch with the PS5 and PC versions as well, which is great news for Xbox players.

Baldur’s Gate 3 received a hefty 21GB update back in February which introduced hundreds of fixes and tweaks to the game. The latest hotfix 22 simply refines a few leftover issues regarding the dialogue, some streamlined UI changes and various crash fixes. It’s not a massive update but it’s one that most players need, especially if they’re one of the unfortunate few who had to listen to Minthara repeatedly ramble about her thoughts on Gale in Act 3. Luckily there’s a fix for that too. Rejecting Bhaal as the Dark Urge now also doesn’t immediately end your relationship with her either.

Have a look at the patch notes for hotfix 22 below:


  • Fixed a crash caused by the game trying to access the duration of a condition on a character with no conditions set.
  • Fixed conditions sometimes trying to get their duration from the source entity instead of the target entity.
  • Fixed some potential internal crashes on Xbox when suspending the game (e.g. when suspending the console or loading another game), causing it to reboot when you went back to it.


  • Improved the messaging for syncing and cross-saving by indicating when a cross-save sync has failed and adding an option to try again. Also prevented the saving and cross-saving messages from appearing for secondary local players.
  • Voice chat will no longer overlap the minimap on split-screen.
  • Fixed the ‘Another Player Is Joining’ pop-up not triggering while the host has a panel open on Xbox, potentially preventing the client from joining.


  • Fixed an issue where legacy dialogue had been enabled unintentionally as part of another line of fixes, in which Minthara would seemingly end a relationship with Dark Urge players who had rejected Bhaal.
  • Made Minthara promise to stop repeating her thoughts about Gale in Act III.
  • Fixed a bug causing you to get perpetually stuck in a dangerous area if you triggered hostilities in the Emerald Grove and then left while it was still a dangerous area.
  • Fixed a rare issue where dialogues would end suddenly when you went to kiss your romantic partner.
  • Fixed a bug causing you to get stuck in combat with the enemies on top of Moonrise Towers if you found a way to sneak into the Mind Flayer Colony.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
