How to Change Your Appearance in Outriders

If only the voice acting was as good as the graphics.

Outriders is the latest looter-shooter to release in this ever-growing genre. Developed by People Can Fly, this action RPG places you in the shoes of a cryogenically frozen soldier who has gained enhanced abilities thanks to a mysterious storm called the Anomaly. With four classes available upon release, players can bend time, ignite enemies on fire, summon powerful constructs, and shake the very planet. Obviously a large part of that is playing the character you want. If you rushed through your character creation or just want a change, the good news is you aren’t permanently locked into your looks. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to quickly change your appearance.

How to Change Appearance in Outriders

Once you’re through the Prologue, you can essentially change you appearance at any time during your Outriders playthrough. Just head on over to any base of operations. That is, the places where you can matchmake, fast travel, restock your ammunition, and access your loot stash. It’s here where you can also find the customization station. Just look for a crate with some duffel bags nearby and a glowing sheet of basic clothing materials.

You can see exactly what it looks like in the screenshot above.

Upon accessing the menu you can change everything you were able to from the start. That includes facial structure, skin tone, hair, facial markings, makeup, and piercings. This is honestly incredible news considering the usual lack of diverse options. Outriders isn’t the worst offender, but is is downright silly that you can only use certain skin tones on faces that the developers have decided are appropriate. Hopefully that’s something that changes in the future.

There are no fees for changing your appearance, so feel free to do so as much as you like. The only thing you can’t change is the character’s gender.
