Baldur’s Gate 3 released a new PS5 update that aims to fix Error 544, which prevented PS5 players from saving their progress. Baldur’s Gate 3 explained why the issue was occurring and how to prevent it from happening again.
Although Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the most critically acclaimed games of the 21st century, it has struggled with various bugs. Many of the game’s bugs were mostly harmless and could be fixed by loading a previous save or simply walking into a new area. However, other Baldur’s Gate 3 bugs were much more frustrating and significantly affected players’ enjoyment of the game. One of the more common types of these troublesome bugs affected players’ ability to save their progress, an issue that was seen on all platforms. PlayStation users might finally have this issue solved.

Playing a Custom character in Baldur’s Gate 3 can be intimidating with so many options, but a few tricks can help streamline the process.
Baldur’s Gate 3 announced that it released an update that addresses Error 544 on the PS5. It explained that previously, the error generated invisible save files that prevented users from making new saves. However, the new update makes these save files visible and allows the user to delete them, which should solve the issue. The tweet offered clear steps for doing so. First, users should update their game with the new patch. Then, go to the Load Game screen on the game’s menu. Here, users should now be able to see the previously invisible saves. Delete these save files and launch the main save; the issue should no longer occur.

Baldur’s Gate 3 recently released an Xbox patch that aimed to fix similar save issues. Some users still report running into save problems, so some PlayStation users still might encounter issues. However, the Xbox update addressed a different save bug, so the PlayStation patch could prove to be an all-around success.
For users worried about save issues, Larian Studios recommends that Baldur’s Gate 3 players activate the cross-save feature. The setting automatically backs up a player’s last five saves to Larian’s servers and also allows users to pick up where they left off across different platforms. Some users report still losing their saves despite having the feature activated, but it adds an additional layer of protection that has likely saved many users from losing their progress.
As for the game’s future, many Baldur’s Gate 3 fans are probably hoping for expansions. Back in August, a Baldur’s Gate 3 developer stated that the studio is not working on DLC yet and that players will need to wait “a long time” until they see an expansion. Of course, “a long time” is a rather vague window, but the massive success of Baldur’s Gate 3 makes it seem likely that DLC could eventually come.
