While the wait for Baldur's Gate 3 has been an interminable one, an advantage to having to endure a month of PC players tearing it apart is that aspects of the game that really need improving are being detected and actioned by developer Larian Studios. One quite baffling missing feature is the ability to change how your character looks (outside of equipment), which you cannot currently do after character creation, not even their hairstyle.

We've been forced to banish several promising characters ourselves for minor, aesthetic transgressions, and it is a very strange thing not to have in place at launch. This is a game in which players spent a combined 88 years in character creation on the game's first weekend, let's not forget! Thankfully, Larian has felt the psychic energy of so many frustrated perfectionists and the director of publishing, Michael Douse, confirmed on X that a solution is currently cooking:

We'll be glad for the ability to change up our looks as the adventure demands, and hopefully, we see the feature added in the not-too-distant future. Baldur's Gate 3's 6th September release date still seems forever away, what are you playing in the meantime? Let us know in the comments section below.
