Dreamranger: Black Desert's Remarkable Character Creator

Sliders galore!

My favourite part of every MMORPG is almost inevitably its character creator.

A good character creator is worth the download alone and oh my, I'll certainly give Black Desert a go if it comes westward.

A new video from the F2P South Korean MMORPG shows off the finest character creator I've seen since APB, including squillions of sliders to tweak a dozen different parts of the face, squish around body shapes, style hair like a pro, and even give characters heterochromia with star-shaped pupils like some sort of glam rock Dr. Quinn.

What's the actual game like? I don't know and I don't particularly mind. I am perfectly content focusing on the bits I find enjoyable and ignoring the rest. We all play and enjoy games in our particular way, often for reasons the developers didn't have in mind, so why not just play dress-up and admire the tech?
