God of War Ragnarok will allow players to use a transmog feature to change the appearance of armor: confirmation comes from the developers.
Santa Monica Studio participated in a Q&A on Discord where it answered a series of questions from fans about God of War Ragnarok . Some users took the opportunity to ask the developers if there will be any transmog function for armor in the game . The answer was simply “yes”.
More precisely, the question was, “Since we’re talking about armor. I like to look good, alright everyone at the studio knows this about me. Fashion first for Kratos, of course. I know one of the request for 2018 was the ability to maybe have the stats you want, but you know, give Kratos the runway look you want. So this is a question from SpiritWolf and a lot of other people; Will there be an armor transmog system?”
The answer comes from Mihir Sheth , Lead Combat Design for God of War Ragnarok: “The short answer is yes. There is a way to do it…it’s there in the game. ” The fact that he did not want to explain the matter further leads us to think that it will not be an option available immediately or that it will somehow be a sort of function to be unlocked or with particular mechanics. For now it is only speculation, mind you.
In case you are not sure what transmog is, you should know that it is a function that allows players to give an armor the look they prefer while maintaining the original stats. It is something widely used in RPGs where you constantly change the character’s armor but prefer to give your hero or heroine a specific aspect. Horizon Forbidden West also has a similar function in a way, as it is possible to equip any armor but activate another’s appearance at the same time.
All the armor of God of War (2018) is well made, but it is undeniable that every player has their own taste and prefers not to use some of them because they are visually unpleasant. The presence of this system is only good.
