The video has highlighted some of the customization options for the main boss character. Which looks quite promising, to be honest. Not only the Boss, but the players can also customize the home bases and can decide which criminal base will run from the base.

Basically, it’s up to the player how they want to customize their character or how they want to run the criminal empire. James Hague (design director) said, “You’re earning money the way that you want to. All this together leads to the game’s philosophy of being self-made.” 

Jim Boone (creative officer) adds: “It is this weird combination that I don’t see in any other game out there of humor, over-the-top and badass“.
