Destiny, is an intergalactic affair that lets players choose not only their gender, but also their race and markings.The beta version of Destiny becomes available to PS4 and PS3 gamers next week and to Xbox One and Xbox 360 the week after. But don’t expect to jump straight into the game. With a number of customization options for your character, some players will take their time making the agonizing decisions that will stay with your character throughout your Destiny experience.

The first choice Destiny gamers will have is their class, whether that’s Titan, Hunter or Warlock. A Titan class Destiny character will benefit from heavy armor and weapons, whereas the Hunter Destiny class keeps its focus on stealth while combining strength and speed. The Warlock class Destiny character works with the magic forces of The Traveler combined with modernized weapons. Whichever Destiny class you select, all of the weapons are class-free so you can use any of them.

Once you have opted for the class that looks best to you, the next step is to design your appearance. The character customization process initially focuses on the character’s facial appearance, that being the area, which personifies Destiny characters. But before you get onto the finer details, you will need to decide which race your character will be. There are a total of three races to choose from in Activision’s Destiny, namely the human race, the exo race and the awoken race. As you may expect, the human race looks a lot like the actual human race. You’re able to choose what skin tone your character has, likening it to yourself if you want to. That also applies to the eye colour options you’re presented with; they are all the natural colours we’re used to, how exciting.
