Dragonpunk is going to be a thriving universe with a multitude of species to interact with and enjoy! We want to give you a taste of this sooner rather than later.
The “Species Mod” will add the option to choose different species for use in your XCom 2 campaigns, this will be purely aesthetic. Species will have no additional bonuses or “race specific” traits, we want to encourage universe building through the inclusion of amazing and interesting mythical creatures.
In order to achieve this, a new option will be added to the character design menu, the “Species” option, it will be inserted above the “Race” option. The player will be able to select from a variety of species(and also the race of the species) as they are made available through the Mod Community or DragonWare’s Art Team.
We are having open discussion on Twitter regarding new species and their inclusion in the Dragonpunk Universe. Stop by the Dragonpunk Twitter feed and give your input or strike up a conversation in our forums!
As the “Species Mod” is under development there may be initial versions where character creation will not be able to be saved into character pools, this is to avoid compatibility issues for those people not using the “Species Mod” from Dragonpunk.
