The Game With The Best Character Creation Tool Is Going Mobile

Black Desert Online is famous for its character creation tool. There is an upcoming mobile version of the Korean massively multiplayer game, and it also has an impressive-looking character creation tool.


Wait, there’s a mobile version of Black Desert? Yes, there is! Black Desert Mobile was announced last year, and you can see game play in the debut trailer below:

And here is the character creation tool, shown off in a recently released clip:

Hopefully, Black Desert Mobile’s in-game economy won’t incite protests and piss everyone off.


If it does, the mobile version also better have the in-game tools for players to march in the streets.

The tool looks impressive but when you actually play around with it, it’s actually pretty limited. If you look closely in the vidoes you can see how all those sliders only nudge things around a tiny little bit, and you can’t create your own character from scratch, you can just fudge around with their preset ones, and each class only has 1 preset. The videos look so amazing but it’s mostly smoke and mirrors.

I’d put Dragon’s Dogma at the highest peak of character creation suites, in that it gives you a lot of freedom to make almost any character you can possibly imagine.
