New Archeage Trailer Shows Fantastic Character Customization Coming With Closed Beta 5

on August 10, 2012 3:08 PM

The fifth phase of the Closed Beta of ArcheAge is just a few days away, and while character customization was somewhat lacking in the fourth phase, XLGAMES released a new trailer to show that things have changed, a lot.

The video showcases one of the best character customization engines I’ve seen in a MMORPG in a long while, with several sliders for every area of the face, to allow radically different character designs.

It’s hard not to be excited when a MMORPG that already looks so good is getting this kind of freedom in designing one’s online alter-ego. Top it with an extremely free-form sandbox experience and a fully explorable world, and we know that beta testers are in for a treat.

I’ll be between them when the floodgates open, so you can expect some nice coverage in the next few weeks.
