Baldur’s Gate 3 players who have spent dozens of hours are likely to fail soon.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Developer Larian has outlined plans for the next patch for the game. It is tentatively titled “Patch 3”. This update will be the first to actually make changes to the game story.
Unfortunately, this means that past saves may not be compatible with the game after patch 3 is installed. This also applies to other future patches, as Larian believes this evolution is part of the Early Access process.
Developers provide a solution for players who want to continue playing existing saves. Baldur’s Gate 3 already has a beta branch on Steam, and if you want to continue playing your existing saves, you’ll need to leave the game here. Obviously, when you do this, you won’t see any changes or bug fixes introduced in all patches.

It’s unclear if Stadia players will have similar options available, but that’s not the case given how Stadia works.
Loading into a beta branch today basically avoids the latest builds. Larian also suggested that players turn off automatic game updates until they decide which option to use.
In either case, the saved file is not deleted, so you can switch (and re-download the affected part) as often as you like. It’s unclear if patch 3 has no release date yet. all Subsequent patches also break storage incompatibilities, but it’s worth the time to do this if you’re not sure.
