How to fix the Baldur’s Gate 3 joining failed error

At the time of writing, the best fix to address this issue is to just play Baldur’s Gate 3 offline by disabling both Cloud Sync and the Launcher. These are safe fixes as they don’t affect your gameplay in any way.

Clearly, this might not be what you want at the moment but before Larian goes around fixing it, then that’s the quickest and easiest fix you can do. You can also try using two separate instances of the game to connect to your own lobby, but that might be quite cumbersome.

Of course, there are other possible things to try as well. We would recommend checking for updates to your game and PS5 firmware as often as possible. Larian might be working hard to push an update, so you might want to be the first to download it and fix it soon.
