In vanilla Baldur’s Gate 3, it is impossible to create more than one character. You must pick your party members from pre-made companions. However, there is a trick that allows you to form 4 custom characters party in BG3. That trick involves abusing multiplayer instances. So, better make sure your PC is powerful enough to run 4 separate instances.
Playing with 4 custom characters is fun. You will miss Baldur’s Gate 3 companion quests though. All in all, this process have its own pros and cons.
Multiple instance trick is not the only way either. You can also ask other people to help you to create a 4 custom character party for you in Baldur’s Gate 3. For that you need 3 friends that are free to help you at the same time. If you don’t have that many friends that playing BG3, you can try our Baldur’s Gate 3 discord channel. I am sure you will find some people that are willing to help you with this.
All companions are unique and have their own custom voicing / questline / etc. Why would you create 4-character custom party? Do you really hate them that much? Well, I guess you are, who am I to judge? Anyway, maybe you will like companions at the full release. Because possible Baldur’s Gate 3 future companions are highly promising.
BG3 Multi Client
By running multiple Baldur’s Gate 3 instances, you can create your own custom 4 characters party. Simply create a lobby and join it with other BG3 instances. That will allow you to create BG3 full custom party. Once you created your characters, save and exit. So that you can enjoy your custom group with only one client. Just the way you like it.
All you have to do is running BG3.exe multiple times. However, that might overburden your computer. Because of that I recommend lowering BG3 graphics settings to very low. Once you create 4 characters, you can simply re-arrange graphic settings to your liking.
To find BG3.exe, right click on Baldur’s Gate 3 in your steam library and browse local files. Follow the same step if you are using GOG, or EpicGames. It doesn’t matter which platform you are using. What matters is finding out where is your BG3.exe file.
Also keep in mind, you cannot do romance between custom created characters at the moment. That is not implemented yet in the early access. To see the possible scenes, check out Baldur’s Gate 3 romance guide.
