The feature has been in the works for some time and will arrive with the game’s next major update.
The patch is “a big one” and is scheduled to launch today, a day later than previously expected, “to ensure through testing”, Larian said.
The studio recently said it was introducing a more rigorous patch testing process following issues with the release of a hotfix which led to a rollback.
Today’s update will introduce the Magic Mirror, which lives in the player’s camp and lets them alter their character’s appearance whenever they like.
They can also change their voice and pronouns. Race and body type can’t be changed, and nor can Origins.
With Patch 3 comes the Magic Mirror, which lives in your camp and allows you to change your Tav’s appearance whenever you’d like!

A delayed Xbox version of Baldur’s Gate 3 will arrive later this year after split-screen co-op was removed as a feature on Series S.
Larian has said that it plans to support Baldur’s Gate 3 PC and console cross-play in the future.
