Dark Souls 2 Character Customization Detailed, Want a Macho Girl?

One thing is certain when you are playing a Dark Souls game; you die a lot.

If that is the case, why not live up to the time you have in the game? What I am referring to is the Dark Souls 2 character customization tool that lets you make choices for your character in great detail.

Famitsu has reported on what you can do using the character creation tools. At the start of the game, you will get to create a character of your choice (take a look at the character creation screens below). While deciding upon the appearance you will choose options from the identity and gifts tab. Make sure you choose wisely as your selection will affect your status and items in the early parts of the game.

Just like it was in the original Dark Souls game, ‘gifts’ are used to your benefit. The choices you will have include a total of eight different items for example Articles of Healing, Ring of Life, and Giant’s Seed.


Don’t worry about them too much though; all of these items can be acquired from within the game as well.

Moving on, you get to choose what kind of body you want for your character; will it be a normal flabby man or a ripped macho girl? Yes, the options are vast, and you can even pick up a muscular girl with a body that is a warning sign itself for the enemies that Dark Souls 2 will bring.

Last is the facial customization screen. As usual, it lets you choose from things like hairstyle, eyebrows, complexion, and more. Get your character all pepped up, and you are ready for the real action.

Dark Souls 2 releases to PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on March 11 in North America and March 13 in Japan.
