You can fix the can’t revive characters in BG3 by loading an old save file when your Main character or party members were alive. If you don’t have an older save, try restarting the game as it resolved the bug for some players. We recommend players update Baldur’s Gate 3 to the latest version to apply any recent hotfixes to fix this issue. However, if that doesn’t fix the can’t revive characters bug, there might be other reasons for this issue.

As of now, the Larian Studios haven’t acknowledged this bug. If you didn’t save scum and can’t revive your main character in Baldur’s Gate 3, the best way would be to start a new game. But we suggest this workaround only if you haven’t progressed far into the game.

If you want to resurrect your companions or party members in BG3, there are three ways to revive your allies. They are as follows:

  • Death Saving Throws.
  • Using the Scroll of Revify or other Healing Spells.
  • Get help from the Skeleton / Withers (for 200 Gold Coins).

Hopefully, the devs will resolve this bug in their upcoming hot fixes or patches. When that happens, we will update the guide.
