'Sunset Overdrive' Puts Female Assasin in The Game
. In the latest episode of the development team's web series, noticed by Eurogamer, it was revealed that you can create a female avatar in the game.You can edit it however you want even if it is to put a man in a female dress. The female character's wear looks like Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 2 wear. If you're asking yourself what all of this means, well, last week Ubisoft said putting playable female characters in the franchise's next entry, Assassin's Creed: Unity, would require resources the team simply doesn't have.
This move from the Overdrive developer seems a pretty overt (while still lighthearted) shot across the bow. If you ask us, games could stand to be more inclusive, especially considering that 48% of gamers are women; this is a step in the right direction. Cheers, Insomniac.
