Baldur's Gate 3: Removing Co-op Party Members
Baldur’s Gate 3 will soon let you get rid of your pesky co-op party member, if the latest community update from developer Larian Studios is anything to go by. After months of fan theories and speculation, the RPG game’s developers address some fan concerns and offer some insight into the future of Baldur’s Gate 3, with a few new features announced, and some others given firm release dates.
“This is Withers,” the announcement begins, as we’re treated to a whimsical poster featuring the Havelock co-op companion wearing a party hat and a broad smile. “You might recognise him as the poster child for the upcoming ‘Withers’ Wardrobe of Waywards Friends,’ which will be available very soon.”
That’s right; after years of playing co-op and having your friends drop in and out or giving up on it altogether, you’ll be able to replace them. “We realise this is a highly requested feature and we are happy to share that it is in development and will be launched very soon,” the update continues.
That’s not all, though, as Baldur’s Gate 3 will also eventually let you change your character’s appearance after starting a campaign, although there’s currently no release date on that one just yet.
I’m sure you’re all wondering what Withers would look like in a party hat, though, so here he is.
Previously, you’ve been stuck with whatever character you picked for your campaign, with the community eagerly anticipating the ability to remove unwanted co-op characters. In addition to the removal feature, it sounds like it’ll be a matter of time before we see what Withers (and all the other companions) would look like in a party hat.
Previously, director of publishing Michael Douse teased this feature on Twitter, so it’s nice to know it’s still on the way.
We’ll keep you updated with all the latest on Baldur’s Gate 3, including the eventual release date for the character appearance change feature. In the meantime, check out some of the best co-op games on PC if you’re looking for something to play with your friends.
