Type of body

Face customization

Skin tone customization

Hair style and color

Eye colour

Once you’ve sorted out your character’s hair and facial hair, it’s time to move on to eye color. There are 19 different colors in total, including some wacky ones that will make your character stand out.


If a weird eye color isn’t enough, you can add some cool features as well, including birthmarks, freckles, and more. There are six in total. Of course, you can also choose not to have any features at all.


Likewise, if you want to make your character look raw, you choose from a pool of 10 scars.


Finally, you will be able to complete the character customization process by choosing one of the 20 tattoos with 15 different colors.
