Taking a scroll across the Forgotten Realms in Baldur’s Gate 3 can often be a beautiful sight. With so many characters and places to remember along the way, marking the occasion with a normal screenshot just doesn’t do it justice. Thankfully, if you’re somewhat of a virtual photography fan, you can look forward to Baldur’s Gate 3 Photo Mode coming to the Larian Studios RPG.
It didn’t take long for Baldur’s Gate 3 to emerge as one of the best RPG games of the year, but despite all of its many accomplishments, there is one feature currently absent from the game. Reaching out to Larian Studios, Baldur’s Gate 3 and virtual photography enthusiast ‘Amianan_NiRaGuB’ says “you know, there are a lot of people in the virtual photography community are asking you guys to add Photo Mode in Baldurs Gate 3.”
Responding to them promptly, Larian Studios director of publishing Michael Douse officially confirms that Photo Mode is in the works behind the scenes. Douse acknowledges it, simply saying, “it’s on the list.” However, an official timeline as for when it will be implemented is yet to be confirmed by the developer. However, Larian Studios is known for addressing the concerns of players in a timely fashion.
This is reflected in updates such as the game’s third major update, which applied the Magic Mirror, a way for player’s to alter the appearance of their character outside the initial creation menu at the start of the game. Requests for this to be added persisted for a month after the game launched, with Larian Studios explaining the new feature “allows you to change up your appearance whenever you’d like, however many times you’d like.”
However, the Magic Mirror includes restrictions: “your appearance, voice, pronouns and nether regions can be changed, but your race/subrace and body type cannot. Origin characters, hirelings and full illithids cannot use the Magic Mirror.” PS5 exclusives like Spider-Man 2 and Ghost of Tsushima feature excellent Photo Mode options, so it can be easy to get the bug for capturing slick screenshots, and exploring those options in Baldur’s Gate 3 is bound to be produce some amazing stills.
