I’ve been kind of disappointed with the alternate skins in the game. One thing I think is really cool is that, if one person on the team picks their purple / black skin, the rest of the team can and often does match. So I’m glad this extends into the unlockable skins as well, but I would like to see more special skins in the game, especially if I’m paying real money to do (which I’m honestly extremely eager to! I just want something that feels a bit more special, I guess).
Montana’s first microtransaction skin feels like a garrish recolor that distracts from those ridiculous muscles that drew me to the character in the first place. Some ideas I had for skins I might have instantly thrown money down for:
- Plaid shirt, no bandolier / accessories, just a classic lumberjack feel
- Draped in animal skins
- Leather harness (like Chris Redfield’s alt in RE:5)
- Straight up bare chested
- Green skin, purple shorts
Not the most original or creative ideas, I’ll admit! But I can’t bring myself to buy a the available skin just because I really like this game / character when I know I’d never use it. Any of these I’d have bought without hesitation.
