In a recent public developer diary, City of Heroes Senior Animator and VFX Artist, Christopher Bruce announces that the art team’s newest acquisition, Cheryl Austin, has been hard at work updating a number of aspects surrounding the game’s renowned character creation system.
“For Issue 15, there are two new costume sets available to everyone, created by the newest addition to our character artist team, Cheryl Austin. “Vines” is a new pattern while “Ulterior” is a new texture set, both of which work with most of the existing costume pieces,” Bruce said in the diary. “Cheryl has also created over twenty new face textures, something we haven’t done since City of Villains launched.”
The twenty new faces, ten male and ten female, can be viewed below:
The end of the diary hints at more new systems that will impact the game's character creation system to come with the upcoming Going Rogue expansion as well as some new animations that have been added around costume changes.
