In Baldur’s Gate 3, players will come across many companion characters with different abilities and as you can only have a limited number of party members around, changing them according to the situation is necessary. While exploring the Forgotten Realms, players can only have four companions at once, including themselves. Maintaining that balance in the skills and abilities of your party members is important as you go through your campaign in BG3. Each character will impact your story narrative differently and all have their perks and cons. As there is no dedicated selection screen to switch between party members, here is a guide you should check out further to know how you can have the right companion at the right time.
How to Change Party Members in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3)
Players can change their party members by talking to the companion they want to add at the camp in Baldur’s Gate 3. You will come across all the characters as you go about your campaign in the lands of Forgotten Realms. It is worth keeping in mind that, if your party is full but you came across a character that may suit the situation or just want to invite them to your team, simply send them back to the camp. The character will then wait for you to recruit them to your party. Here are the steps you can follow to switch the Party Members in Baldur’s Gate 3:
- Fast travel back to your camp in the game.
- At the camp, talk to the companion you want to rest to free up the space in your party.
- Simply select the dialogue box and then ask the character to stay at the camp.
- After which approach the character you want to switch in for the slot.
- Open the dialogue box and invite them to join the party.
- With this, you will successfully change your party members in Baldur’s Gate 3.
While asking a character to rest at the camp, can lead to disapproval. Each choice you make will affect the narrative differently. Although the companion will agree nonetheless. Another thing to keep in mind, as you switch your companions, the one added in will receive an XP boost. This will help the companion catch up with other high-level party members easily in Baldur’s Gate 3.
