It's important to note that once you've made V's face and body features, there's currently no way to change either – so be sure you're happy with it before progressing. The same goes for your gender, which can't be switched – unlike Assassin's Creed: Valhalla earlier this year.

Most puzzling is the game's lack of hair customisation, meaning whatever you pick for V, you're stuck with – apparently, Barber Shops have all closed down in the year 2077. Still, it's not all bad news, as you can tweak your outfit – although this is tied to your stats.
