Baldur's Gate 3 Incompatible Version: How to Fix

Larian Studios

Baldur's Gate 3, the D&D-adapted RPG from Larian Studios, has in two weeks surged to become one of the best-reviewed video games of all time. Though much praise is being directed to the game's impressive scope, lovable characters and intricate gameplay mechanics, the game does have its fair share of bugs. One bug currently affecting players trying to load recent saves is a problem with saves being from an "incompatible version" of the game. Here's what you need to know.

Since release, Baldur's Gate 3 has reached a peak of over 875,000 concurrent players, according to SteamCharts. The game was briefly the best-reviewed PC game of all time, according to Metacritic, but has since fallen to the third position, behind 2021's Disco Elysium: The Final Cut and 2004's Half-Life 2.

Baldur's Gate 3 Incompatible Version: How to Fix

Unfortunately, there is currently no fix for the incompatible version bug in Baldur's Gate 3. As announced by Larian Studios on their official X account, problems with a recent update to the game forced the developers to roll it back to a previous version. This means that any progress made while the update was live is no longer the current version of the game and is thus incompatible with further play.

Larian Studios announced this morning that they are working on a fix for the recent update and are looking to push it out by the end of the day in Europe. In the mean time, players are still free to play the game on the previous version of the game, though this may mean they will have to retread some old ground in an effort to regain progress before the fix is deployed.
