Diablo IV features a little more involved character creator than its predecessors. While players can pick from a couple of different face sculpts and hair styles, there is a way to change your appearance in Diablo IV. That said, it only affects it less permanent choices, such as makeup, jewelry, and markings. These can be changed after you complete the Prologue of the game and make your way to Kyovashad.
You can change your appearance in Diablo IV by going to the Wardrobe icon on your map. From there, you can select the “Appearance” tab to adjust whatever you like. Again, you cannot change your face, hair, or skin color, which makes it a little limited. Thankfully, these minor adjustments can be made without costing any gold.
You can see where you can access the Wardrobe in Kyovashad, and what the “Appearance” menu looks like below.
However, the Wardrobe also serves a secondary purpose. Players can also create an “Ensemble.” These function similarly to Glamour Plates in Final Fantasy XIV. For those unfamiliar with that system, you can effectively create a set look that won’t change even if you equip different gear. This means that you don’t need to head back to any specific NPC to transmogrify the appearance of your new items whenever you equip something new. You can also choose the color of specific pieces of your attire and apply them to your gear entirely for free. However, opening up new “Ensemble” slots will cost gold.
Diablo IV will launch on June 6, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its Early Access beta weekend will be held March 17-20, 2023. The open beta will run March 24-27, 2023.
