|Horizons Warcry brings us their rather detailed Horizons E3 preview, again with a number of nice screenshots. Here's an excerpt:
Character creation is little more than decided what race, gender, look and name you will have. You’re not expected to run out in the world and KNOW what you need to survive. That comes with experience. Some of the traits to choose from are hair shape, face shape, head shape, eye texture, hair texture, height, portliness, endowment (for women – about time!), height; if you’re a dragon your scale color, spots, stripes; if you’re an elf do you want to be a classical elf, wood elf, dark elf; if you’re a Sslik are you the size of a Gila Monster or an Alligator – the possibilities are endless. We saw 6-10 choices per feature but were assured there would be many many more by release.
As an aside, all the women seem to start with turquoise hair. I asked about this and was told it must be a Mesa, Arizona thing. To those of us familiar with Mesa, this makes perfect sense. To the rest of you…sorry for the confusion.
