Final week, Baldur’s Gate 3 gamers on Xbox discovered their accounts banned when their clips of the RPG’s spicy scenes had been mechanically uploaded publicly, as per the Xbox Sequence X/S’ default settings. It appears developer Larian Studios has had a chat with Microsoft to get these bans lifted, however is advising that gamers be extra cautious sooner or later.

Larian posted on its social media channels that gamers affected by flagged clips ought to “now see their bans start to elevate.” Work to repair all of the bans is ongoing, however Microsoft is conscious of the problem and is seeking to repair it. Within the meantime, Larian advises gamers to make use of the sport’s mature content material toggle within the recreation’s settings to maintain nudity out of any clips they plan to add. That is sometimes used for streamers to maintain the sport stream-friendly, however with Xbox banning folks for computerized uploads of specific scenes, it’s possibly value retaining in thoughts in case you’re planning on creating clips of Baldur’s Gate 3.

Getting the bans lifted is an efficient factor, however I might hope this may be a lesson to Microsoft not computerized uploads the default setting. Xbox has pretty cut-and-dry guidelines relating to what sorts of clips can immediate a ban, however when the default setting is to publish captured footage the place folks can see it, Microsoft is unwittingly setting gamers as much as fail. Baldur’s Gate 3 is primed to screw folks over on this entrance—not solely are its intercourse scenes fairly specific, nevertheless it’s potential to have characters within the nude at any level by eradicating your garments within the tools menu. So whereas Larian might have gotten Microsoft to make things better this time round, that is nonetheless an issue baked into the system.
