Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox bans lift as Microsoft is now “aware” of issue

BG3 players are having a wild start to 2024 due to recent Xbox bans but Microsoft is now beginning to reverse its decisions for the RPG.

What a truly wild time to be playing Baldur’s Gate 3 right now. The acclaimed Larian Studios RPG continues to impress Xbox and PS5 players alike, though Xbox players are kicking off 2024 with a major obstacle – they’re getting banned. Due to the steamy nature of BG3‘s romantic relationships, attempts to upload risqué clips are seeing Xbox accounts approaching suspension. Now, Microsoft is on the case to repair the situation.

So far we are barely into the new year, and Baldur’s Gate 3 ensuring 2024 is already an exciting time to play one of the best RPG games around. Following Larian Studios itself commenting on the rather “uncool” decision to ban players, Microsoft appears to be in communication with the developer to reverse these decisions. “Xbox players, players whose capture clips have been flagged on Xbox should now see their bans begin to lift,” says the developer on social media.

Larian Studios assures Xbox players that the necessary processes are underway, as it clarifies that “work is ongoing, and the Microsoft team is aware of the issue.” However, should you and other Baldur’s Gate 3 players feel compelled to share some of the game’s more personal moments, Larian Studios advises holding off – at least for now. “If you’re wanting to upload any clips in the meantime, make sure to turn off mature content,” the studio says.

Baldur's Gate 3 Xbox ban

If you aren’t sure exactly what content is causing these bans, basically players are attempting to share horny moments from Baldur’s Gate 3. It really is that simple. Though the game never delves into depictions of these acts directly, it does heavily implicate that collision detection is going off the chain between you and a member of your Baldur’s Gate 3 party.

However, it is the game’s nudity that is the main issue for Xbox players. Anything can happen in The Forgotten Realms, and in this case, characters like Lae’zel aren’t afraid of cutting loose.
