Developer Larian is working alongside Microsoft to sort out «annoying and uncool» account bans, which can happen when Baldur’s Gate 3 footage containing nudity gets uploaded to Xbox servers.
This all stems back to the weekend, when Reddit user Daddy-Vegas warned other Baldur’s Gate 3 players about capturing certain footage in Larian’s award-winning RPG. The Redditor recorded «some naked camp time fun», which they planned to share with their brother. Xbox then automatically uploaded the footage to its servers.
However, if Xbox discovers imagery it deems offensive, the content is removed and the player’s profile will be «temporarily prohibited from sharing additional imagery (typically for 24 hours)». And, as Daddy-Vegas’ clips included that aforementioned nudity, they were met with a ban for each clip, which resulted in their account being suspended for a year. They have since appealed their ban, with the Redditor revealing earlier this week their efforts were successful.
