Since the daybreak of Destiny, Guardians in all places have been asking for the flexibility to alter their characters post-creation. That’s nonetheless a no-go, sorry for the false hope, however Bungie is making core modifications to the character customization for brand new Guardians.
“We know that how your Guardians look is important to you,” opened engineering designer David Aldridge in a current Bungie weblog put up. He continued, “And we’ve long wanted to add more player customization to Destiny.” Unfortunately, these modifications have but to occur and the present creation system is closely restricted. Luckily, it appears to be like like that’s going to be altering sooner or later, although nonetheless no phrase on post-creation recreation, however present characters might be seeing small tweaks.
Aldridge defined, “Our original system for player faces had some combinatoric content authoring problems – for example, every decal had to be authored completely custom for each player face permutation. This prevented us from extending this area of the game with more content and features. We’ve upgraded to a significantly more capable system (with e.g. runtime decal projection), which we hope to leverage for more player customization options in the future.”
It’s clearly wanted, my homegirl is highly effective however she ain’t cute
Luckily, Bungie is reviewing present participant fashions with the assistance of its Diversity Committee and Employee Resource Groups to alter present participant heads, which is why Guardians might even see their already created characters wanting a tad bit otherwise. In the longer term for brand new Guardians, nevertheless, the studio is constructing model new face shapes in an effort to make the sport’s character creation extra diversified.
The objective right here is to permit gamers to create a Guardian in-game that they’ll see themselves as. This is a fairly frequent objective with many video games which have character creation and whereas the graphics for creating characters in Destiny are gorgeous, the alternatives are very restricted.
Between character customization tweaks and transmog coming quickly as nicely, our Guardians are going to be lookin’ dang fairly. Currently, my Warlock has to have a helmet on always as a result of the armor set makes her seem like a punk rock drag queen and I like her, however there are stats that different units have that I might like to equip and transmog as a substitute.
Now we simply want Bungie to take a web page from Dragon Age’s Black Emporium so we will change our faces, hair, and extra for these of us (it me) that made some grave errors in judgement.
Anyway, Destiny 2: Beyond Light arrives on November 10.
