Here is a full run through of the character creation. Sadly there is no commentary and of course the text is Korean.

    That is incredible for a MMO.

    This character creation is not for the decision averse.  I could see someone I know spend about 10+ hours fiddling with the character creator in this game if that is what it will have on release.  Speaking of which, I need to go check this game out because that is pretty impressive. image

    Wait, can you control the body enough to create "freaky people" like in AION. Atleast it seemed like it from the videos. It looked like you could make the arms extremely long. Maybe i'm wrong.

    But in terms of face customization, that's amazing.

    Yeah I am already picturing nearly dead servers at the time of release and the next few hours afterwards because most people will still be fiddling with their characters. XD I know I will probably end up spending an hour or more on this.

    Asians are way ahead of western devs when it comes to character models, character creations and animations.

    This is how it is done Western devs..take  notes and learn.

    (*yawn*) clap, clap... i didn't quite get the point of setting arms/feet in various positions at the end though. Why? how's that related to character creation?

    Probably simply a feature to get a better look at your character in various positions. I know I have made a char before and spent a long time working on it only to get in game and have it not be as "perfect" as I thought it was.

    I might be the only one playing then.  Character creation means very little to me.  I usually select a default character and click play.  Great for those who like this, however.  I am more interested in game play and the larger world.

    We all want that but what good is excellent looking big world that is filled with identical twins and clones?

    The way your character looks is as important as the feel of the world.

    To each their own.  Despite the number of MMOs we currently have and the ones I have played , most of the characters look the same to me.  Sure, add a scar here or make big breasts here but they all look about the same to me. I have yet to play a game that reflects a real life situation where people all look very different. Perhaps I have learned to not care about this, but it remains low on my list of MMO requirements.

    Agree, always spend ages making my toon, make the character feel like it's mine. In saying that, from what i've seen i'm hoping the classes aren't gender locked.

    Only one that still seems to be is Beast Tamer but Pearl Abyss said they are perfectly fine with changing things like this for the Western Market.

    And after first beta people here complain about lack of character customization :) - hey all characters look alike, this game is stupid!

    Now I hope you realize this is the greatest MMORPG project developed till now. Look at the world, look at the combat, look at the economics, look at the PvP, sieges, trading, aesthetic, lore, politics. This game is huge, and it is brilliant, much better than any AAA title.

    The most ridiculous thing is, that over this background you are amazed by character customization :) I will put diagnose on that behavior - Themepark pret-a-porter brainwash.

    In my experience pretty character models doesn't always translate into smooth gameplay. I agree that this is pretty neat, but history has proven that flexible character creation doesn't accurately predict how good the game will be. I guess I'll remain cautious until I see more.

    Great news is this game has had info trickling out for the past two years I got all hyped back in 2012 but managed to slam the breaks on my hype and lay off for a bit but now we are getting some true beta footage and everything is still looking amazing.

     

    From all the interviews I have read and from what I have seen the team behind this game are really passionate. Only way this game will probably get ruined is by the publishers Pearl Abyss get in foreign markets.

    I like it a lot :D! The only thing I'm so-so about is the heart/star in the eyes or on their faces. Doesn't go hand in hand of the medieval theme they have created and somewhat breaks the immersion. To some extent even the neon-coloured hair also contributes to this. But I can oversee it, after all it is a medieval game with fantasy ingredients.

    No, it is a fantasy game with medieval landmark. The project is very commercial in fact. I like the idea for pure medieval game too, but I doubt it will has a huge market success. For example look at Mount&Blade - great game, but after few weeks it becomes a little bit boring. That is why I'm not hyped by Gloria Victis /the other reason is lack of mounted combat/.

    But maybe the best thing in Black Desert is not combat, aesthetic, graphics or landmark, but economics. By this point BDO is far better than EVE and ArcheAge.

    Not too badly though it is a mix of east and west remember. Tattoos were really big in Asia and ancient Roman women were obsessed with brightly coloured wigs and hair dyes.

    Only thing that was iffy to me was the funky eyes.

    Caught wind of this game a while back and the graphics certainly caught my attention.  It is indeed a beautiful game and the characters are varied and interesting.  The combat looks pretty crazy too.  Until I know more, not really sure what to expect overall though.
