Hytale Blog Breakdown - #6
Welcome to the Hytale Blog Breakdown, where we summarize all the latest news coming straight from the Hytale Development Blog.

Blog Summary:
This week's blog focused on showcasing character customization in Hytale.
Key Takeaways (Zero Speculation, All Fact):
  • Players can customize their character's skin tone, eye color, hairstyle, facial hair, facial expressions, and layers of clothing.
  • Players will be able to choose from several other playable races as well; not just human.
  • Colors may also be modified for all customization elements.
  • Hats and accessories are not dependent on chosen hairstyles.
  • Armor will apply over your character's customized elements.
  • Customization options will vary from veteran adventurers, farmers, magic users, artisans, modern apparel, and more.
  • “There are two sides - the fantasy side, and the feeling of being yourself - playing with your friends and wearing everyday clothing. There’s also cosplay and roleplaying. We want people to be able to build a saloon or a spaceship and have a set of costumes they can choose from.”
  • Servers can override character appearances while those users are connected to their server.
  • Manual emotes will also be present in the game to animate your avatar.

Pretty much the entire wishlist people had for characters from another block based game. Always thought we needed far more customization beyond the skin layers we had. I hope Hytale add a ton of armor customization like coloring and patterning so people can be much more unique.
