As of the Beta launch trailer the face now looks like this:
I am quite happy with the look and have no major complaints. It’s the best look of 47 to date in my opinion.
Below is my initial post for this thread, so that this longwinded debate is conserved in it’s entirety.
This is a naive attempt of mine to get the “47s face looks weird” type discussion into one thread instead of having it infecting all threads on the gameplay.
Just for the record: I do think 47 looks bad in the gameplay trailer. Not OK. Bad. I thought he looked better in the cinematic trailer. I don’t say this to be mean spirited or troll, I think most people who post in here know I only want the best for the franchise, and often defend the devs and their choices. This is just my honest opinion on the matter.
I can live with it if that’s what it turns out being, because in the end I care more about gameplay, but I would prefer:
- A slightly bigger body frame. He looks like a marathon runner, and should look more like an olympic swimmer.
- A bit stronger facial features. Stronger jawline, and so on.
- Maybe 5 or even 10 years of extra age on there. No need to make him fifty, but he doesn’t even look 30 here, and that’s just too much for my tastes.

Just for reference, a few pics of the face from the gameplay trailer as well as old Absolution pictures.
Of these I think the second picture is most clear. He looks so skinny and young and with no real strong defining facial features…
And a photoshop I did to illustrate what I think I’d like to see:
And as a finisher, to be clear, IO are still not done according to at least one employee:
So maybe this is still salvagable.

Jonathan responded in this thread and he made it very clear that 47s look is a work in progress:
