Larian Studios has graciously given us a sneak-peek of the character creation in their upcoming Baldur’s Gate 3. And it looks mad.
In a lengthy update, on the game’s Steam store page, the developers explain how the character creation works in Baldur’s Gate 3. You’ll start by allotting a total of six points into abilities like Strength, Constitution, Intelligence, Dexterity, Wisdom and Charisma. Your typical RPG setup.
Then, you need to decide what your skills are going to be. These skills determine what your character will be better at, throughout the game. These skills include things like Acrobatics, Deception, and Stealth.
After all of that is done, you get to move on to appearance, and this is where things start to take off. There will be a staggering 16 playable races and sub-races available in Baldur’s Gate 3, with 150 heads to pick and choose from, all 3D-scanned for into the game for maximum effect.
However, in the upcoming Early-Access period, starting October 6, there will only be eight available races to choose from. These races include Human, Githyanki, Elf, Drow, Half-Elf, Dwarf, Hafling, and Tiefling.
So, are you joining the Early-Access squad and if so what type of character are you going for? Let us know in the comments.
