Code Vein: Character creation guide

Character creation and customization recently became standard for role-playing games. In hindsight, it seems evident players would want to make a unique character, but it took time for technology and developers to catch up. The trend is here to stay. Character builders get more advanced with each new game. Code Vein’s character builder raises the bar in the customization field.

As tired as many are of this comparison, the Code Vein’s character builder is similar to Bloodborne’s in terms of functionality. The creator also matches the one in Black Desert Online. The latter is one of the best builders in the gaming industry.

Code Vein character creation guide:

To adjust your appearance, you must find the Home Base, located next to Coco, according to the game’s wiki page. In the Home Base, players can look in the mirror next to the candles and bathtub to adjust their appearance: change clothes, hairstyle, eye color, physical appearance, etc.

The actual creator presets to help players build and refine their appearance. Besides the gender choice, there are 32 facial presets. Players can continue with the preset without improving further, or they can continue to modify their character’s appearance to their desire.

More advanced options include:

  • Physique

  • Skin

  • Hair

  • Face

  • Eyes

  • Eyebrows

  • Makeup

  • Scars/Other

  • Face paint

  • Accessories

  • Clothing

  • Purifier mask

  • Mask frame

  • Voice

In an interview with Fextralife, Bandai Namco said they didn’t want to fall into the trap of using a set slider pattern. They hoped players could make their ideal character and start from a blank slate.

If previous games are any indication, players will take this creator to make ethereal gods and goddesses of beauty. They can also make hideous monstrosities by pushing the features to their limits. Either way, the freedom offered by the creator is refreshing and unique.
