Ask Cryptic: Races and Customization

Ask Cryptic: Races and Customization -

Cryptic Studios has posted another edition of Ask Cryptic where they answer community questions about Star Trek Online. This week the questions focus on the alien races we'll see in the game as well as character customization.


Are there any unique races that members of the development team have come up with, just in the course of noodling around with the character creator, that might show some of the diversity and flexibility of the Character Creator? What's the most outlandish Awen-original species to date?

Currently we’re focusing on the IP races. There are so many of them in the Universe and we think fans really want to see that. We’re creating as many of those as possible. We’re also creating a handful of races that have been mentioned in the IP but have never appeared on screen before. CBS has been great and allowed us to define what these races look like, so those will be in the game. As we create all those costume bits – facial bits, body bits – we put them into our character creator so we can repurpose them for a new race, or users can repurpose them for a new race. We’ve also created some new custom pieces to throw into the character creator, so players can create completely new races as well.

To date, we’ve mostly made lots of crazy alien mixes for fun. Although it’s most important for us to focus on getting the key Universe races into the game, expect to see all sort of unique and strange new alien races in our exploration content.
