    Just a quick question. Does anyone know if the races are going to be select gender only? So basically like can humans only be males? can Cassians only be female? or will it be mixed depending on select races.

    I think all races have both genders available, except Chua?

    Yup all races have both ''male'' and ''female'', The Chua are a bit...confusing.

    We got Carbine staff saying both these things:
    1. Chua are genderless
    2. Chua got difference in Gender but only Chua's can tell

    So do they have Gender? Or not? It's a big question mark above the awesome Chua :D

    Plot-twist - the Chua are all clones with minor gene modification to make them appear different!

    What Extatica said. The reasons you only saw/see one gender of some races is that they're still working on the other gender - and it was easier in Demos to just have one at a time, less work.

    Yup they said ''you can still style as a male or female'', but if they really have gender in the character creation menu.....is still not confirmed.

    I think all Races will have a male and female options. After looking at gameplay footage, all races appear to have both gender options. Im not sure about the chua but I would think they would too. Hope this helps!

    Oo er... I know what you're referencing, but my mind understood that differently. :cautious:

    I don't think the Chua are genderless, it's just that only the Chua can tell the difference between a male and a female Chua - to everyone else they're identical (just like many animals to us). I saw a video of Chua character creation from Gamescom, their gender options are "Chua?" in place of male, and "Chua!" in place of female. Whichever you pick, the customisation is 100% identical.

    Lol.

    I was watching a really recent video (I think PAX) that was like exactly an hour long and had mostly gameplay of housing behind a panel of Carbine devs. They did a Q&A for like half the video and one question was about female Chua. The answer was basically, "we're not ready to talk about that yet."

    I assume there will be a choice even if it is just changing the voice of your character. It'll probably be fairly similar to the differences between male and female Asura. Even though we can't tell many animals apart at a glance most games tend to differentiate them in fairly human terms. The Draken are pretty bestial, but they still have very human dymorphism. But the Chua are supposed to be cutely grotesque, which is pretty similar to the Asura.

    Huh, actually the idea of the Chua not having a specific binary gender option in the character creator is very interesting, if true. Makes some sense, since they're very animalistic and so male and female would have similar body types anyway. So how gendered you want to make your character is sort of up to you, which is very progressive considering there are people who don't wish to identify either way.

    There are some animals that reproduce via parthenogenesis like bees, snakes, lizards, fish, etc. Nothing mammal-like though. I would like to believe that since they are crazy, maniacal squirrel tinkerers that they reproduce by cloning with some technology.

    When you get them wet, little furballs pop off and evolve to new Chua.
    And never ever feed them after midnight!
