Does Genshin Impact Have Character Customization?

Genshin Impact Character Customization

Genshin Impact is the kind of online game that is going to grow above and beyond its initial launch. Developer miHoYo has so much in store for gamers everywhere, touching upon future content such as new characters, cities, stories, a housing system, and costumes, among other things. It's only natural that we may wish for some features that are yet undergoing development, or under consideration by the team. One of the things that many gamers are asking for is the ability to customize their main character, the Traveler, so does Genshin Impact have character customization?

Is There a Character Creation System in Genshin Impact?

The answer is no, there is no character customization in Genshin Impact… yet. There was nothing of the ilk during the beta tests, and there shouldn't be any for the official launch as well. The best that you can do is choosing between a male and female Traveler right before you start your adventure in Teyvat.

The devs haven't uttered a word about Genshin Impact character customization, so this doesn't seem to be one of their priorities. It's easy to see why anyone would want to fiddle with such a system, because the great anime art style of Genshin Impact would result in fantastic new characters, but that's a big no for now. Cross your fingers for that day to arrive, but don't hold your breath – you may get to switch outfits in the future, but customizing details such as hair style, body size, eye color, facial features, and other things is seeming unlikely.

Speaking of another kind of customization, you can equip and evolve your Traveler and remaining heroes with tons of weapons and artifacts. This is a standard system where you level up your party by any means possible, with countless items and materials to get stronger. But that's not what we wanted, right?

The Genshin Impact release date is pinned down for September 28, 2020 for PC, PS4, Android, and iOS. The Nintendo Switch version is coming at a later date.
