Meet Your Maker: Character Creation In Games

The best thing about playing an RPG or most games in general is having the opportunity to create your own character who will be representing “you” during your time with a game.

Black Desert’s character creation is amazingly impressive!

Black Desert, a new MMO that’s still in closed beta, is a gorgeous-looking game that I’ve just had the privilege to discover. Developed by Korean company Pearl Abyss, Black Desert will deliver a variety of experiences inside of its sandbox atmosphere including open-world combat, castle sieges, and real estate opportunities that will allow a limited amount of houses to be bought by players. The game itself looks beautiful and definitely “next-gen,” which becomes obvious in the latest character creation video. Continue reading Black Desert’s character creation is amazingly impressive!
