Baldur’s Gate 3 Astarion Was Actually Tiefling

Baldur’s Gate 3 earned a lot of awards since it’s release and still it keeps receiving awards. Just like the game, characters are also became fan favorite in these times. One of them is far more popular than others, of course and that character is Astarion. Voice Actor Neil Newbon has also received awards as Best Performance as well.

Larian Studios has a major presence at this year’s GDC, as the studio’s founder and Baldur’s Gate 3 director Swen Vincke held a panel discussing the massive RPG’s development. Vincke revealed a glimpse of what Astarion looked like earlier in Baldur’s Gate 3’s production.

Vincke didn’t reveal when Astarion became the High Elf everybody knows him as today, but considering how important a character’s race is to their personal stories in Baldur’s Gate 3, the change must have come earlier on in the game’s narrative development.

Baldur’s Gate 3 was in production for a total of six years, with three of those years spent in early access. With this in mind, Astarion’s appearance was likely changed before early access went live, sometime during the first three years of the game’s development.

With how long Baldur’s Gate 3 has been in development, there’s a good chance that some of the game’s other important, fan favorite characters like Lae’zel, Karlach, and Shadowheart may have also looked drastically different long before the game’s wildly successful 2023 launch. Perhaps with how popular Baldur’s Gate 3 is, maybe Swen Vincke will lend fans looks at early versions of other characters sometime in the future.
