Can You Change Your Appearance? – Baldur’s Gate 3

As you start your first playthrough in Baldur’s Gate 3, you’re presented with an in-depth character creator to help customize your avatar to your heart’s content. With the flexibility to change your class or abilities at any point during your campaign, you would expect similar mercy when it comes to your avatar’s appearance.

Changing Appearance

Unfortunately, you cannot change your appearance after exiting the character creator in Baldur’s Gate 3. This seems like a surprising oversight considering how in-depth the game is. A possible option for players interested in looking like anything else is the Mask of the Shapeshifter from looting the Digital Deluxe items, but this is temporary and requires the deluxe DLC.

For concerns about your hair, a hat or a helmet are your best bets for hiding your bad hair day.

It’s definitely disappointing that a simple option like this isn’t available, but we can hold out hope for it to be implemented down the line. What do you think of the decision to not allow changing your appearance after the beginning of the game? Let us know in the comments below!
