The developer of Baldur’s Gate 3, Larian Studios, has recommended that PlayStation 5 owners experiencing game crashes should take their console offline to resolve the issue. According to Larian, the crashes appear to be related to a problem with PlayStation Network (PSN).
In a statement posted on social media, Larian acknowledged that some PS5 players were facing sudden crashes while playing Baldur’s Gate 3. The studio is currently investigating the issue, but in the meantime, they have provided a workaround for affected players: disconnecting the PS5 from the internet.
Several players who responded to Larian’s announcement mentioned that they were unable to play the game even in single-player mode. Additionally, some users reported that disconnecting their consoles from the internet resulted in license warnings from Sony. These warnings required players to go back online within a 15-minute window to validate their copy of the game.
However, many players expressed their gratitude to Larian for addressing the issue and were relieved to discover that their game saves had not been corrupted. Eurogamer has reached out to Larian for an update on the problem.
