After three years of early access, Larian Studios has finally released Baldur’s Gate 3. This newest iteration is a sequel to the older Baldur’s Gate games that were released decades ago and is the next iteration from Larian’s Divinity Series.
Baldur’s Gate 3 has had an overwhelmingly positive reaction from fans and newcomers, peaking out at over 810,000 concurrent players on Steam with a 98% positive rating. However, what this article aims to cover is the absolute gem of its character creation.
True to its Dungeons and Dragons roots, Baldur’s Gate allows for almost every class, and some of its races to be selected. While some of the race options can be lacking, especially if you’ve played Dungeons and Dragons, there is still plenty to choose from to leave you satisfied. Most races have four body type options to help ensure you create your dream character. Below are images of the classes and races players can choose from.
Baldur’s Gate 3 also allows you to customize your character’s attributes specifically. So for those who want to have faults in their character, you can easily pick and choose your character weaknesses.
Moving to the cosmetic options, Baldur’s Gate 3 has a ton of cosmetic choices, including but not limited to:
- Body Art
- Vitilgo Pigmentation
Players (including ourselves) have likely spent hours just customizing their characters, and that doesn’t even count the phenomenal game itself. If you are still on the fence about playing Baldur’s Gate 3, seriously, do yourself a favor and pick it up. Triple A studios of late have been filling games to the brim with battle passes and microtransactions, and Baldur’s Gate 3 is a step back in the right direction in favor of the consumers and gamers.
