Destiny 2 turns seven years old later this year, launching in 2017 on PS4. Die-hard fans who rolled a dud of a character, like an overly-edgy Awoken or a dorky-looking Exo, will finally be able to change up their character's appearance in an upcoming update, due sometime before June's The Final Shape expansion.
In a blog post, Bungie foreshadowed the much-requested feature in a blog post. Players who began with the original Destiny and imported their character to the sequel have potentially been staring at the same character for a decade, warts and all, and this addition feels well overdue. Bungie sets the scene:
"You created a very edgy Awoken when you were a teenager. Maybe you chose some regrettable markings on your Human's face, or you didn't coordinate the colours of your Exo's mouth and eyes. Or perhaps your character's body type no longer represents who you are. No matter the reason, you'll be able to change your Guardian's look when character customization goes live in an update before the release of The Final Shape."
Players can modify their Guardian without cost as much as they like, within the boundaries of body type, face, hair/head and markings. Origins (Human, Exo, Awoken) can't be changed, however, so you'll have to live with the consequences of that particular decision for eternity.
