Elden Ring character creator leaked and fans love his depth

Images of the creator of the character of Elden Ring have been leaked and fans are pleasantly surprised to discover that this is a much more in-depth system than the one featured in Dark Souls and Bloodborne.

Elden Ring – Disclosed Character Creator

Leaked by YouTuber ER-SA, the Character Creator allows you to create human characters that are much more natural than previous FromSoftware games. This comes in part from the graphic fidelity of Elden Ring; although they are arguably not quite on par with the Demon’s Souls remake on PS5, the characters are much more comparable and of a significantly higher quality than those seen in Dark Souls 3 or Bloodborne. A comparison between recent FromSoft character creation results was posted on Twitter by fan SkeleMann:

Additionally, a number of slider options provide significant in-depth control over the appearance of your Elden Ring character. In the closed network test, from which this footage was leaked, the labels for each of the options are missing. However, we can clearly see from the results that there are options to change the spacing on all aspects of the face and the ability to reshape areas like the nose, cheeks, chin and eyebrows. Essentially, while Elden Ring’s improved graphics allow for much more natural-looking characters, you’ll also be able to create an absolutely disgusting beast of a person, if you still want to.

The reaction from fans so far has been very positive, with as much interest in creating a realistic character as in creating something that could be featured in Monster Factory.

“I see the soulsborne tradition of making horribly mutated monstrosities possible is still alive and well,” the user said. WereSalamandre on Resetera. “The hair is absolutely gorgeous here,” added Zurich.

“Huge upgrade from DSIII. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting it. Oh and you can still make awful characters! Everyone will be happy this time around lol,” the user said Melted dreams. “Good. I’m glad I can still do abominations that ruin improve every cutscene, “said Mr. Cibb.

Veteran Elden Ring and Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki recently revealed that the graphic quality of the Demon’s Souls remake puts extra pressure on the Elden Ring team to make the game feel fantastic. And while Elden Ring’s cross-platform nature means that it will likely never look as avant-garde as Demon’s Souls for PS5, it is certainly a step forward for FromSoftware, and the sequel to character creation goes in that direction.
