This right here is what happens when you ask your predominantly male gamer audience to show you examples of what they think female military armor should look like.
Crytek, developers of online shooter Warface, polled users around the world on what they’d like to see when it came to their female soldier skins. Apparently, Russia responded with a resounding “BOOBS!”.
In an interview with Wired, Crytek’s Joshua Howard went on to say:
The skins we’re showing right now are the skins that basically came out of our Russian region. They’re not what our players at first requested in the Russian region. They tended to be considerably more extreme that what we ended up shipping with.
Yep. The pic above is the tamed down version of what Russian players imagined for the female fighters. I kinda want to know if one of the skin options was something like a woman in a camo loincloth with a Barrett M82 in one hand and RPG in the other.
Cause, y’know, it’s cold up there in Siberia. So, BOOBS.
