How character customization works in Diablo 4

You can build a unique character in Diablo 4

Diablo 4 is coming out soon and fans curious about how far the customization goes in character creation. In previous games of the franchise, such as Diablo 2, certain classes were locked behind specific genders. However, Diablo 4 has plenty of options for customization, without forcing players to build specific characters for classes.

You can choose your character’s gender in Diablo 4, but it’s only between male and female. On top of that, you can choose your body type, leading to plenty of options for players to choose from.

Customization in Diablo 4 is extensive, including:

  • Ethnicity
  • Hair color
  • Hair style
  • Jewelry
  • Makeup
  • Eye color
  • Piercings
  • Tattoos
  • Scars
  • Skin tone
  • Sex
  • Facial Hair
  • Face variations

There are at least 13 customizable elements to characters in Diablo 4. This leaves players a lot of options to choose from to develop their characters of choice.

Other character customization info for Diablo 4

As usual for games with a lot of customization, there are presets that players can use if they don’t focus on spending time customizing characters. However, you can also use presets as a starting point to develop your characters’ look.

Not only can you choose their looks, but naming in Diablo 4 is the cherry on top. There are limits to things like profanity or other explicit words, but limited to twelve characters long.

Whether players can share the same name or have to use things such as underscores, numbers and other unique characters is yet to be known.
