The latest hotfix patch for Baldur’s Gate 3 has brought about a significant change to the character His Majesty, an NPC cat in the game. Initially, His Majesty was mistakenly modeled as a Sphynx cat with no fur. However, this was rectified in a previous patch, which gave the cat the intended appearance of having fur. This change, however, upset some players who had grown accustomed to His Majesty’s hairless look. In response to fan pressure, the game’s developer, Larian Studios, has now released a new hotfix patch that has once again removed the cat’s fur.
To differentiate between His Majesty and another character called Steelclaw, Larian also made a change to the color of Steelclaw’s eyes so that the two cats no longer have identical appearances. The decision to revert His Majesty to being a Sphynx cat without fur has been well-received by fans, with some expressing their gratitude for the change. Overall, the latest hotfix patch for Baldur’s Gate 3 addresses several crashes and issues in addition to the alteration of His Majesty’s appearance.
Fans of Baldur’s Gate 3 can now enjoy playing the game with a hairless His Majesty once again. Larian Studios responded to the feedback from players and decided to bring back the cat’s original appearance. The hotfix, which also resolves various technical problems, ensures that the characters His Majesty and Steelclaw are no longer visually identical. This move demonstrates the developer’s commitment to listening to and accommodating the preferences of the game’s fan base. In the grand scheme of gaming history, fans view this change as highly important, acknowledging the significance of a beloved character’s appearance in enhancing the overall gaming experience.
