The turn-based game Baldur’s Gate 3 has taken the gaming world by storm. The game was in the works since 2020 but this long development process was justified by the masterpiece Larian Studios has delivered. The title has rejuvenated fans’ interest in turn-based games, with them demanding more titles like it.

The game, however, still has some minor issues in it. Fans are expecting Larian Studios to resolve them in Patch 1 for Baldur’s Gate 3. And looks like it may also contain a fix for one of the issues fans want the most.

But one issue fans still have with the title is character appearance customization. Once players selected their character’s appearance, they could not change it from anywhere. All the hairstyles, clothing choices, and tattoos become permanent throughout the game.

Michael Douse, the Director of Publishing at Larian Studios, came forward with some good news when asked by one fan. A fan requested, “Sir please let me change how I look in the game. I’m BEGGING!!!!” 

Douse replied with a ray of hope for all wanting this update, “Things are being cooked.”

This feature will be a relief for the players, here’s why

This issue proved to be a major thumbs down from the fans who want to change their characters over some time. This Dungeons and Dragons-based game deeply depends on the choices a player makes during their play. If they are not pleased with their characters, it would ultimately lead to a decline in the gameplay experience of the players.
