BG3 Change Appearance Guide: Can You Alter it in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Looking for a way to change the appearance of your character in BG3Baldur’s Gate 3 is the latest game from Larian Studios, the renowned developers behind great RPGs like the Divinity series. Their newest game, though, takes notes from the Dungeons & Dragons. Players of the popular tabletop RPG will feel right at home with the mechanics of Baldur’s Gate.

One of the most fun things players can do, of course, is the creation of their own original character. With many races and classes for you to choose from, your character has a lot of flexibility to create for a fun role-playing experience. There’s plenty of deep appearance things to change, too. So, with such a deep customization system, can you change your appearance later if you change your mind?

Can you Change Your Appearance in BG3?

Unfortunately, at the moment, there is no way to change your appearance in Baldur’s Gate 3 after the initial customization screen without the Digital Deluxe Edition. Make sure that the character you make in the initial creation process is a face you’ll want to look at for hundreds of hours, because after the creation process, you’re likely stuck with it.

Players who own the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game, however, can use one of the included items, the Mask of the Shapeshifter, to change their race and appearance in BG3 whenever they please. This definitely isn’t an ideal situation. Luckily, though, this pack of items isn’t too exorbitantly priced, with the pack including this piece of equipment costing $9.99. If you’re a player who plans on changing their appearance often, this purchase may be worth the price of admission.

That’s all you need to know about changing your appearance in Baldur’s Gate 3! Although you unfortunately can’t change your appearance in the base game, at least not all hope is lost. While you’re here, why not some other useful information, including the BG3 level cap.
