The first post-launch update for Baldur’s Gate 3 is here, even if it may not be the one players have been asking for.

Larian has pushed out the first hotfix for Baldur’s Gate 3. Hotfix One brings a number of crash fixes, as well as various other smaller gameplay tweaks.

This is not the one Larian promised will address the multiplayer problems – that one is still in the works. Nevertheless, the developer wanted to get this one out of the way now. It’s not clear when the multiplayer fixes will arrive.

Outside of the crash fixes, today’s update corrects a few problems with the Pickup and Pickup and Add to Wares commands, overlapping views in the inventory screen, and a problem that resulted in players being unable to ready up when someone joins the lobby.
