Customize an epic beard with Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age beard

While I was sleeping, Bioware revealed some new Dragon Age: Inquisition details. Basically, it’s just a video that’s similar to a Create-A-Sim demo, but this time it’s Create An Inquisitor. Still, I might spend a bit more time that I’ll admit customizing my Qunari’s horns.

Here is the video showing off the full range of customization options.

It’s good to see that there was some sharing within EA – the customization seems a whole lot more intuitive and includes some ability to simply move ears around. Most of the options are still done with sliders, but at least they seem a bit more comprehensive. And really, as long as you can customize it to have the most epic handlebar moustache and beard, the character creation is already complete.

How in depth do you generally go with character creation? I tend to stick to a general punch of parameters – I want a certain shape of the face, a hair style that I like and green eyes. That’s basically it; I don’t spend much time adjusting the shape of the nostrils or length of the bridge of the nose. However, considering that those are in there, I’m sure some people do. In the end, I figure that I won’t see most of these things when my character is wearing a weird helmet or covered in my enemies’ blood. Besides, I don’t need to make the character look like a fantasy version of myself to feel immersed in the game. However, I know that I’m in the minority in this regard – how much time do you guys spend on character creation?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Admiral Chief 0

    MAGNIFICENT!

    • JJ the Reus

      Yes, but does it have eyeliner? Wait, why am I trolling myself?

      • Admiral Chief 0

        Stockholm syndrome

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Maybelline syndrome :/

          • JJ the Reus

            Well, maybe I was born with it!!!

      • Her Highness the Hipster

        Yes, it does! you can even choose the eyeliner color 🙂

        • Admiral Chief 0

          You just made this a DAY ONE PURCHASE for JJ

          I bet that even if the Eyeliner DLC was $99 he would buy it

        • JJ the Reus

          Woohoo!
          I mean, uhm, that’s nice for girls.

      • HAHA! We’ve created an ‘auto-troll-myself-auto-eyeliner-bot’ We win!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Because your beard makes you immune to sarcasm, so you’re obliged to?

        • JJ the Reus

          I can believe that.

  • Lardus-Resident Perve

    BEARDS! When I make a human male warrior, he needs a strong face with possibly a scar or two, and a BEARD! Mages and rogues I tweak a little. Rogue is human/elf and always resembles Faith from Buffy/Angel.

  • Hammersteyn

    It feels cheap slapping a beard on your character at the start of a game. Beards should be grown.

    • CypherGate

      maybe they should give still give beard options, but say they can show the completed look of the growing beard and also give time speed growth (10mins, 30mins, hour etc etc) of your beard as well OR they can just give you the option to grow your beard and select time speed growth and while it grows you can have it trimmed to a certain look in the game.

    • Matewis Jubilai

      Yup like in Don’t Starve. Now there is a beard you can be proud of

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Beards should be cultivated. It should be earned!

  • Matewis Jubilai

    • Hammersteyn

      Hahaha I remember this.

  • Admiral Chief 0

    My Skyrim character has the most beautifully glorious knotted beard!

    • Admiral Chief 0

      (my daughter “helped” me create the last character, yes he has long hair with some braids but dammit he looks manly! I think she is working with a plan)

      • JJ the Reus

        To get you to look manly also? Hehehe

        • Admiral Chief 0

          I wish I could grow my beard as long as toe tie it in a knot!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Toe beards? Just how hairy are your feet? O_O

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Not so much on the feet, but very much on the big toes!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    PSA: Don’t try to created a bearded Rince, it’ll crash.

  • I want to know, how many of you create YOURSELF as the hero?

    • JJ the Reus

      I create someone with an epic beard and long dark hair.
      So pretty much me with long hair 😉

      • Brady miaau

        Yeah, I cut my long hair off a few years ago. Was awesome, at my wedding my hair was nearly twice as long as my wifes hair. Still got on and off beard though.

        Um, why is customising a beard in a game important?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      All my characters are a reflection of myself, irrespective of their appearance…

    • Sageville

      I prefer to make lady characters…. so no there.

      However, when I do roll a male, I rock a big pale toon with an epic beard, so then yes, then it’s ME!

  • Jackie4159

    Are you kidding me the nose takes the longest to get right # throws chair

  • ZombieDogma

    I find it kinda weird that the skin and scar textures are so high res, but the hair is really low poly and very plastic. The fact that everything else is so nice just makes it infinitely worse.

  • Sageville

    Finally!

    Hopefully the Beard AI will be equally impressive.

  • JJ the Reus

    How was Dragon Age Origins?

    • Brady miaau

      One of the best games I have ever played. Played it through 4 times, which for me is an incredible amount. It means Origins, subtle differences with each race and so forth. Very cool.

      I would get and play, all DLC’s are good to play.

      Just do the Nike thing with it

  • oVg Definitive and Remastered

    WHAT? One does not have to pay EA a Micro Transaction to unlock the beard extension?
    Ill believe it when I see it.

  • oVg Definitive and Remastered

    After spending so much time looking at Ellie and Joel’s character models.
    No other game comes close.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      That Joel Beard….

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Dragon Age One Beard? This is one of those titles that’s on my “maybe.. will probably get it second hand” list. The rot of Dragon Age 2 and EA hang in the air. It makes the Banana a little skittish.

  • Pieter Smal

    Dragon Age = sexy time!

  • Jordan Grey Williams

    Still no dreads

  • Kensei Seraph – Staff

    As someone who I respect and look up to once said to me, you will be staring at that character for several hours so you may as well make a character you can enjoy looking at.
