As we all know, Grand Theft Auto V’s online component, GTA Online, is set to feature an editor which will allow you image your character after yourself, or anyway you see fit. But how exactly will the character editor work in GTA Online?
According to a recent report by Shacknews, it simply comes down to your DNA. Powered by the hereditary-based creation system, character creation will allow you to pick your character’s appearance by choosing your parent’s heritage and choosing which parent you will most closely resemble using a gene dominance meter.
Those who drop some hefty amounts of cash for the collector’s edition of Grand Theft Auto V will have some more options to play with when it comes to creating your identity in GTA Online, as it will net you the Niko Belic, Claude and Misty customization options. Essentially, they will be parents that you can liken your character to.
Additionally, despite not being online to be able to rank up your character in various activities while offline, it doesn’t mean that they will stop living their life. Your character will be able to continue on with their daily routines and activities, for which you can set guidelines, which will ultimately impact your character’s appearance and skill set.
Grand Theft Auto V is set to launch on September 17 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and GTA Online will be available on October 1.
