"The plastic surgery and gender change services are closest on the horizon," he said. Both are real-money transactions that involve buying tickets from account services and then exchanging those with a vendor in-game to change your look.
A Plastic Surgery ticket allows you to remodel "nearly anything" you could customisse during the character creation process, including hairstyle, body style and face. Gender change does what it says on the tin.
Tamat also promised some website changes including improved forums, frequent in-game events, double experience weekends "once or twice each month", and "a substantial amount of new content". More would be revealed about content plans for 2010 "in upcoming months".
