Last week the Elder Scrolls Online team released a great new video showing off the massive number of ways that players can customize their characters. But is this what players -really- want to see? We offer a few thoughts to answer that question. Check it out before leaving your ideas in the comments.
The character creation in ESO looks to be fairly robust. You can adjust your weight, your “ripped”-ness, toy with eye color, hair, tattoos, hair, spots on Argonians and Khajiit. You can tweak the width of the shoulder, the girth of your chest, arms, length of feet, and so on. You can bet I’ll very likely be a rotund Orc who defies stereotypes. There are quite a few options for faces too, and most of them are far prettier than what you’ll find in Bethesda-made Elder Scrolls games (without mods, of course). The long and loose hairs still look a little stiff and unmoving to me, which I hope isn’t the case (let me Orcish locks flow, damn you!). But from the little two-minute video below, I’m fairly confident I’ll be able to make my characters look exactly how I want them to look.
