I’ve had an article in my drafts titled ‘All MMOs want a barber store’ for a number of years now. The chance of that piece ever getting completed inched additional away this afternoon, with Bungie saying that—after nearly a decade, and numerous complaints—it is including a system to allow gamers to edit the looks of their guardians. Here is what the developer needed to say within the newest This Week in Future weblog submit:

“Irrespective of the rationale, you can change your Guardian’s look when character customization goes stay in an update earlier than the discharge of The Last Form. To take action, you may solely have to launch Future 2 and you will discover a brand new choice while you hover over a personality on the character choice display.”

Certain sufficient, here is an image of a do-over in progress.

Now not feeling just like the edgelord look is a timeless traditional? You possibly can redesign your character simply in time for the ultimate chapter of Future 2’s ten-year saga! (Picture credit score: Bungie)

Startlingly, for a studio that has the brass neck to promote extra transmog doohickeys, the brand new system goes to be fully free of charge. 

“It is possible for you to to switch the looks of your Guardians anytime, with out price or restrict to the variety of modifications. Simply take into accounts that whilst you can change the physique sort, face, hair/head, and markings, it gained’t be doable to vary from one origin to a different (i.e., Human, Exo, or Awoken).”

This could placate these gamers who thought it might be hilarious to create a robotic with ostentatious antennae and extra make-up than a toddler left to their very own units in mom’s closet, and have been caught with it ever since.

There is not a precise date for the brand new system to go stay, however Bungie did additionally say that it is going to reset the Synthweave bounty cap in March. These are the transmog doohickeys I complained about earlier. Every character can earn 10 per season without spending a dime, however after that they should be purchased with actual cash.

With the present season lasting six months on account of The Last Form delay, the studio clearly thought it made sense to throw fashion-conscious grinders a bone. Bungie has beforehand mentioned that to mitigate the drawn-out season it would add free content material over two months, starting in April, underneath the moniker of Future 2: Into the Mild. There’s additionally a PvP map pack on account of drop in Might. 

Right this moment’s submit additionally provides gamers the prospect to vote between two units of wizard-themed Competition of the Misplaced armor, the winner of which can be accessible as a part of the game’s annual Halloween occasion in October. You possibly can see these under [left to right: Titan, Hunter Warlock].

I voted good wizard for Warlock, and evil wizard for Titan and Hunter. Which is what it’s best to do too, as a result of my aesthetic style is impeccable, as evidenced by the very fact I’ve by no means wished to revamp any of my toon’s faces, a lot much less write a Reddit submit about the issue.

Lastly, Bungie has kicked off its annual charity push referred to as Game2Give. All method of emblems and different in-game beauty gadgets can be found primarily based on how a lot cash you are in a position to give or elevate. The Bungie Basis has raised a whopping $20M {dollars} up to now, which is heart-warming even when the remainder of the temper music across the game has been bleak for a while
