How to change character appearance on PC in Bannerlord

If you are playing Bannerlord on the PC, then changing your character appearance will be incredibly easy.

All you need to do to change character appearance in Bannerlord is to press the “V” key on your keyboard. This will open the character customization menu you saw when you first started the game.

Now you can change every little aspect of your character, such as height, face, hair, and even weight.

Since this is the exact customizer from the start of the playthrough, you can change absolutely everything about your character’s appearance in this menu.

You can’t change your name and banner here since those can be changed in other, different ways.

How to change character appearance on PlayStation and Xbox in Bannerlord

If you are a Bannerlord PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series player, we have bad news for you.

One of the developers stated that “there are not enough keys on the controller,” so they decided not to add the character customization button that PC players have.

They also said that “Even if there was a way to add the extra button mapping to the controller it would not be available for consoles sadly.”

However, there are two solutions that can either fix your problem entirely or just mend it a bit. The first solution would be to plug a keyboard into your PS or Xbox and use the instructions for PC.

You can connect a keyboard using a USB cable or stick and press “V” to open the menu, and then you can just unplug and continue as before.
