It’s happening, folks: Ship of Heroes is set to announce the date for its character creator tool this week, which means it’s cranking up the hype machine with a new dev blog and video all about what to expect.
“One of the big things that you’ll see in the character creator Beta for Ship of Heroes is that we are currently giving players a lot more power to customize their avatar than any other MMO character creator currently does,” Heroic Games declares. “This can work for you or against you depending on how much artistic talent you have. So what if your aspirations for making a unique character are high, but you aren’t a professional character artist? Well, we give you an escape hatch: randomizers. Once you choose a character model, you can call on our CCT to randomly change elements like the physical appearance, costume, and color scheme. This means you can just keep clicking until you have something close to what you want. Then you can edit that version to perfect it.”
There’s a load of new pics and a video too, in which the devs walk through the randomizer specifically and plays around with all the options.
