    I was searching for the answer to that question but I couldn't find it, so it would be perfect if someone could help me, thanks in advance!

    Edit: Confirmed by devs that there is not going to be gender locked classes!

    It seems like they will be genderlocked.

    If you look at the trailer, the Sorceress, Mystic and Assassin characters are all female. Gunner and Warlord characters are male. So I guess so :(

    Genderlocked characters are such a dumb idea to me and ruins the RP part of MMORPG, hoping this isn't the case.

    Looking at the names of the classes, like "sorceress" and the teams working on this game. 99% it will be genderlocked, sadly.

    Indeed, when you read the character description on the website it's rather clear.

    Yeah, it was also genderlock described by staff, and the publisher and developer have only had genderlocked games so far.

    I'm a bit disappointed by this gender-lock, Triple A MMO are usually less inclined to this thanks to their budget of development, above all we are in 2017 and the MMO middle is rather harsh nowadays. I guess the devs are going to catch up this lack by another good feature. I hope so.

    The question came to my mind when I saw the paragraph of "highly customizable classes". That's a bit sad, they didn't do that with TERA and now they will, I hope that the classes only stayed in that way because the devs only made one model for each class, but let's wait for more info!

    They didn't do that with TERA at the beginning only, all new classes since then have been female genderlocked only.

    Oh, you're right. I only played it in the early months after the release! :oops:

    I do have to say I'll be somewhat disappointed if there's a gender lock on all of these classes. I'd be fine with if, for instance, if the Sorceress, Mystic, and Warlord were gender locked for lore/story purposes (maybe Sorceresses are a female-dominated group, maybe Mystics are as well, maybe Warlords are from a male-only organization or something) and then the Assassin/Gunner weren't—But it's looking like they all might be.

    3 Female and 2 Male classes to start out with also sends a concerning message considering past games.. it'd be nice if we could get a game that kept things 1:1 for once. In this case there literally isn't a single male magic class. :(

    I don't think genderlocked classes are confirmed yet but it seems to be implied which is disappointing to me.

    I've mentioned it before, but it might work like Black Desert where male/female versions of classes are release following release.

    I do hope that they decide to take away genderlocking from the characters, it limits the character creation vastly, I hope they start off with release with at least a male and female of each class, if not that then something they did with Black Desert, but on release.

    Its a shame that in this day and age things are still getting gender locked, while this won't stop me playing this game when it comes out I do prefer to have the freedom of choice when it comes to picking which gender I want to play as rather than the game telling me you want to play X you must be Y gender.

    But male and female versions are not really the same, from 1 to 56 they share the same abilities but the awakening make them become totally different in BDO.
