This process is entirely based on the aesthetic aspect of character creation, which has been greatly improved over Grand Theft Auto Online. Players can now edit facial and physical features in much greater detail or can choose a much simpler process which selects a random preset for the player.
Once players have completed customizing their character's appearance, they have to choose a background. The background chosen will determine the character's statistics, mentality and how the player enters the world of Grand Theft Auto: Revolution.
