    The first day of gamescom is well and truly over and what better way to end the day by talking a little bit about the 3 confirmed races so far.

    Please note: The quality of these photos aren't exactly high as they were taken on my iPhone off the LCD displays at the NCsoft/Carbine booth.

    Races

    Male Bunnie-Girls are possible...

    That will be interesting to see... but it all looks good, and each class "mechanic" looks interesting as well... seeing as they have 2 meters on top of health to keep track of :D

    Thanks for the nice clear shots. I was squinting hard when the demo was streaming to no avail! :confused:

    I wonder how many classes and races they will end up with.

    Interesting, I was under the impression that races/paths were "mix and match", not quite so set.

    I was kinda leaning towards a pistol-packing Bunny, myself.

    I'm sure I read somewhere today that they were only locked-in like that for the hands-on demo and it should be freeform race/gender/class at launch.

    What do you mean? You will choose whichever race, class, and path you want. Seems mix and match to me unless I'm misunderstanding you.

    The screen shown shows three races/genders (Female Aurin, Male Human, Male Granok) locked into three classes (Warrior, Spellslinger, Esper). As I said, I'm sure this is only for the demo though.

    Good to know.
    Whoever thinks "bunnies" are all cute and fluffy obviously never watched Watership Down.

    I think someone stated that for the demo, they made those 3 pre-made characters, but that during the actual launch of the game, you can mix and match.

    That movie still brings tears to my eyes....

    Love it, although not seen it for many a year, it still brings up memories.

    I will confirm that yes, you will be able to choose your own race/class combination. Also, you will be able to customize your character. For ease of character creation in the demo, we pre-made all three of them so players could jump right in.

    Any news that says I may be able to make a bunny-eared girl with a gigantic sword is good news!

    I noticed this as well - hopefully it's just a placeholder.
