Baldur’s Gate 3’s second hotfix curtails penis clipping and 300+ other issues

If you – and your fellow 800,000 players – have torn yourself away from the incredibly entertaining Baldur’s Gate 3 to read this, congratulations! You’ll be delighted to know that your genitals are now safe from being exposed, thanks to developer Larian’s second major hotfix release. This update not only fixes clipping issues but also includes over 300 other fixes as well.

The issue with wang clipping in Baldur’s Gate 3 seems to be a rare occurrence, affecting only penises C and D and only when characters are wearing specific githyanki clothing. Nevertheless, rest assured that penises are now properly hidden after today’s update. Larian has also restored underpants that had mistakenly disappeared from male gnome sorcerers.

While most of the other fixes in today’s update may not be as exciting, some notable changes include the removal of the game’s version number from beneath the minimap, as well as the addition of more multiplayer servers and server scaling support.
