Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate 3 has received hotfix #18, fixing several issues regarding vendors in the game. This is the first hotfix since patch 6 dropped a few days ago. Larian Studios has announced that it will continue to work towards fixing issues and bugs reported after patch 6. The studio has also clarified that some mods may become unable to work as mods aren’t officially supported at the moment.

According to the patch notes, hotfix #18 doesn’t bring a lot of changes to Baldur’s Gate 3. The number of changes listed in the patch notes is drastically lower than most of the other small patches Larian Studio has dropped in the past.
