Baldur's Gate 3 is available now in Steam Early Access, and players who've seen what the first Act has to offer can now spice up their gameplay with the RPG's first set of mods.
Although it launched without Steam Workshop features, crafty members of the Baldur's Gate 3 community have found workarounds for the lack of mod support, adding a number of smaller but, nonetheless, significant picks from which players can choose.
Modder AlanaSP has found a way to unlock BG3's origin characters, letting players see how being a vampire feels like. If you want to save that experience for the full release, you can try out new customization options for your regular characters.
Baldur's Gate Early Access 3 Mods
If you're looking for a less monstrous choice, playable Gnomes might be just up your alley.
On the combat side, BG3's Fair Fire mod aims to make non-direct fire damage less of a nuisance by having it tick at the end of your turn, rather than at the start.
The DnD Rebalance mod's first iteration makes Firebolt and Ray of Frost no longer leave surfaces below where they strike. It also introduces Disengage as an action separate from Jump, all in an effort to remove a handful of Larian's own interpretations of the ruleset.
Another Baldur's Gate 3 mod lets players take more short rests before needing to take a long rest.
As the world-renowned sword scientists that we are, we can safely say that a sword which deals more damage is better than a sword that deals less damage.
The Sword of Justice Extreme Edition is a clear showcase of that, making Anders' blade deal 2d10+1 damage instead of 2d6+1. Don't believe us? Just install the mod and go fight the guy up close.
As you venture across the Forgotten Realms, you'll spend quite a bit of time staring at the world map, figuring out where you need to go. Crispy Map is a BG3 mod that doubles its resolution, making it look better.
