Baldur’s Gate 3 Players Are Still Stuck With A Baldur’s Gate 2 Problem

Baldur's Gate 3 is still a work in progress, as the game has been in Early Access since 2020, and won't see a full release until 2023 at the earliest. The fact that Baldur's Gate 3 is in Early Access means that the developers can address an issue that has plagued the game for those who have been playing and replaying Baldur's Gate 3 since its launch. This issue was also a problem in Baldur's Gate 2 and it took the work of fans to fix it.

Baldur's Gate 3 has gradually been adding content over time, with the most prominent new additions being full character classes. Since it entered Early Access, Baldur's Gate 3 has added the barbarian, druid, and sorcerer classes, all of which influenced the game world in different ways. The fact that druids have such an important role during the early hours of Baldur's Gate 3 means that a druid player can have their own say in events. Baldur's Gate 3 players should try the druid class at least once while the game is in Early Access, in order to see the differences for themselves.

The fact that Baldur's Gate 3 keeps adding content to the game during its Early Access period means that there is a lot of incentive to replay the game with a new class. There is one frustrating aspect of the game that diminishes the enthusiasm for a new run. Baldur's Gate 3 has an epic opening cutscene, but anything repeatedly experienced will become less interesting over time, which is the fate of the Nautiloid ship.

Baldur's Gate 3 starts off with the player captured by mind flayers and taken aboard a Nautiloid. The Nautiloid is attacked by fiends and the player breaks free. The magical D&D spelljammer ship ship is treated as a tutorial level, with the player teaming up with other prisoners and learning the mechanics of the game inside a horrifying vessel that merges alien biology with magic. The problem is that the game doesn't give returning players the chance to skip the ship. Anyone who has replayed Baldur's Gate 3 has likely grown sick of the sight of the Nautiloid and just wants to jump straight to the meat of the game.

Coincidentally, Baldur's Gate 2 had the exact same issue. It starts off with the protagonist trapped in the dungeon of Jon Irenicus, where they have been the subject of his wicked experiments. An attack by the Shadow Thieves results in the player being freed, leading to a lengthy tutorial dungeon. Irenicus' dungeon grew so tedious that fans created the "Dungeon Be Gone" mod, which let players skip the entire thing. There's a new Panel from Hell Baldur's Gate 3 event happening soon and developer Larian Studios will hopefully announce an option to skip the Nautiloid, at least while Baldur's Gate 3 is still in Early Access.
