After fan outcry, Larian is reshaping Baldur’s Gate 3’s most popular cat

Baldur’s Gate 3 features an incredibly popular hairless cat named His Majesty, but after fans denounced a recent update that added hair to him, Larian has released a hotfix that corrects this error.

You know him, you love him: it is His Majesty. The hairless Sphynx cat quickly rose to fame as players made their way through Baldur’s Gate 3, as he’s a funny little naked guy who thinks he’s better than everyone else. What’s not to love? But then tragedy struck: Patch 3 was released for Baldur’s Gate 3, which allowed you to change your appearance at any time. While players had some issues with the patch, one difference in particular was the worst… His Majesty was no longer hairless.

One of the patch notes even mentioned it, saying: “His Majesty’s appearance, which previously looked like Steelclaw, has been updated. His Majesty’s appearance now suits his name and nature.” This couldn’t be further from the truth, as we all know that His Majesty’s true brilliance came not only from within, but also from his hairlessness. Fans were quick to mock the decision and demand that he return to his former glory. Luckily Larian was listening!

Larian’s official Twitter account announced today that Hotfix 8 has now gone live, which notably fixes numerous crashes and issues, but as Larian himself said: “More importantly, we have shorn His Majesty.” Unsurprisingly, that many fans were very happy about the return of the king in the replies to the news since all is well with the world now.

Of course, there were some other useful changes with the hotfix, like party members no longer giving you all important items as soon as you discard them, but honestly, not the headline here. You can read about the rest of the changes introduced with the hotfix here if you’re interested in something other than His Majesty.
