    So this appears to be a thing, though it stems from one guy's livestream, and only two sites are reporting on it. Apparently if you start a new game after launch day, Sara's face has been altered quite significantly.

    Check out the writeup/footage here, and please, if any of you guys have also seen this (perhaps it's only in the French version, or only through the quickstart main menu option?), I'd love to know.

    Cheers!

    I didn't choose the quick-start option, but I chose the default female appearance and she pretty much looks identical to the pre-release footage. I have to say, the lead-up to this game has been kind of bizarre.

    Not in terms of her marketed appearance being 'a thing' (trust me, I couldn't care less), but if different regions are getting different models - or they've patched in a whole new version/the original wasn't intended for mass market despite all the advertising, that's a pretty big talking point.

    Yeah that's mad fake. My current save and new character creation just look identical. Sat through the intro again for a Quick Start, same deal.

    I've reacted to the faces in this game the same way I always react to hearing Geralts voice for the first time in a while. It's intensely off putting for like a half hour and then it's completely unnoticeable.

    It's a somewhat unnerving effect.

    I ended up pretty happy with the custom face I made for Sara. I went with preset 2 and made what limited facial changes I could; but the big things I did were give her default Sara's hair colored blue, dark violet eyes, and violet eye shadow. Its unrealistic enough that it takes her backwards out of the uncanny valley for me and instead make her look like a really good cartoon; which I'm fine with.
