Probably not completely bald. It's hard to get a good look at her, but the female PC in our first glimpse video has hair. Note that even that PC is not final, however.

thanks for the answer, i wasn't sure about what i saw on "first glimpse" vid, so you will probably go for a half shave hairstyle like jack in mass effect 3?

Honestly, it would be nice if we had an option or two. If the Castoff can choose whether to follow a path more enlightened, more just, more passionate, etc., she should be able to choose how to cut her hair. Even Geralt of Rivia can visit the barber.

We've considered that, Zombra (or something like it anyway). Obviously the PC's hairstyle is not as critical as Tidal reactivity, and in many cases is harder to do (Tidal reactivity doesn't require new portraits and character models), but if we have the resources toward the end, it's possible.

Honestly, it's not that big a deal if all we're seeing is the faceless isometric model from a bird's eye camera. Would still be nice though :)

The one morphed into the squared jaw body-builded "thing" in the third opus yes. Not sure if it still qualify for the Geralt name…

It'd be fitting for her to be baldish...kinda like a newborn ;)

She should be bald and the hair style is chosen when you are playing the game. Of course this is coming from one of the supporters of a complete blank slate character at the beginning of the game.

In the alpha test female character has hair, so she's not gonna be bald. I like that appearance of the protagonist is unique and predefined, because that's how it was in PS:T and it allows for portrait and character model changes depending on what happens to him/her in the game. If there were all sorts of appearances it would be too much of a hassle to do.

He's supposed to be skinny and NPCs still comment on it, especially when you do the fights, which is a little odd.

Compared to Leto he's a walking skeleton.

Honestly; he doesn't look any different than he did in 2 when you remove the armour - I think it's just that the armour he has at the start of the game and that's in all of 3's promotional material just makes his upper body look bulky.

Agreed.

On a side note, and it happen that I agreed to what you said (strange coincidence, isn't it ?), I was looking at your signature, and it seems I can't recall myself what are the second, third, and sixth badge in it. The rest of them are pretty obvious to me but those ....

Anyway, if someone happen to know, I'd be glad to be enlighten.

Sixth badge stands for Planescape: Torment. It's Lady of Pain on it.

My bet for second is the Tales of the Sword Coast. Expansion for the first Baldur's Gate.

What is the third, though... Ruins of the Myth Drannor, maybe? Dunno.

Make sense, I forgot about Baldur's wrecked ship. And I forgot about the Lady having "blades" ... Thanks ^^

I think I've found the third one, Baldur's Gate : Siege of Dragonspear. Didn't know at all it existed in fact.

Second is the Tales of the Sword Coast logo - an expansion to the first Baldur's Gate: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... _front.jpg
Third is the Siege of Dragonspear logo - an upcoming(!) expansion to Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition that's gonna bridge the gap between the first and second game: http://www.siegeofdragonspear.com/
And sixth is the Lady of Pain logo for the whole Planescape setting, and Planescape: Torment: http://planescape.outshine.com/official ... poster.jpg

P.S. Incidentally, Lady of Pain is also my avatar: http://www.channelavi.com/wp-content/up ... inRef1.jpg
