Will the game eventually have character customization as an available feature? I'm talking about being able to alter the appearance of a character beyond armor, even if it's only as minimal as gender.
+1 from me. As a role-playing game there should be a least some basic customizations for your character besides armor. When you create your character it should be at least gender and face (maybe with some minor changes to it, like hair / eye colour, tattoos. Nothing fancy, just essential stuff
Yeah the ability to customise gender, skin tone, hair and markings/scars would be desirable. Also helmets and hoods.
