The Elder Scrolls Online Will Feature Race Specific Customization Options
The character creation video Zenimax Online released last month was discussed by a lot of fans and the developer just posted a new Q&A to answer the questions from the community. Because ESO has very unique races that are playable when the game launches, the game provides race specific customization options for each race. For Khajiit and Argonians that don't feature human hair, they have their own forms of hairstyles, body markings and so on.
I saw the new character creation video, and I think it's great! But there's one thing that deeply concerns me: why isn’t there a beer belly for female characters? That option looked especially charming for males, so why take it away from all those beer-lovers who like to play as females? - Katri Kuu
We showed lots of variety in the video, but we didn’t cover the entire spectrum that will be available to you. In addition to the triangle, you’ll be able to individually adjust several parts of your character, including a slider for the stomach. In the video, the male character had most of his body sliders, such as his belly size, set to the maximum—the female didn’t. You’ll be able to change this to your liking for your character.
How many hairstyles does the character creator have for each race? What hair and eye colors are currently available? - Jeff Glover
There are currently 24 hairstyle choices per gender in the character creation system. Some of these choices are shared between races, but each race has some unique hairstyle options. Hair color and eye color are also specific to each race and align with established lore. For example, Wood Elves have an option for black eyes that is not available to any other race.
As the constantly changing person as I am, I tend to always want to change hairstyles on my characters in-game after a little while to make it match a certain armor, or the likes. So, my question is: will it be possible to change your hairstyle or other appearances (like tattoos) in-game after you have created your character? - Therese Ström
For the initial release of the game, you’ll only be able to select hairstyle and adornment choices in the character creation screen at the beginning of the game. We hope to provide enough options to allow you to create a unique avatar. But we feel the same as you—over time, players want to change their appearance as they develop their characters, so we do have plans to release additional hairstyles, tattoos, adornments, etc. in post-launch content updates.
