Natural Selection 2 Adding Female Marines

“The game industry has a history of depicting female characters inappropriately. Often, they are stylised to such a degree that they become sexual objects: While their male comrades are clothed, armed and armoured to fight, the female character is notable for the lack of any clothing at all.”

“This is not good enough, and it’s not a trope Unknown Worlds will entertain. Games are legitimate cultural influences, and game developers are responsible for the message they choose to convey to players. The Natural Selection 2 female marine is first and foremost, like her male colleague, a soldier. Her armour puts function before form, while adopting the science fiction, melee combat aligned design ques that have made the male marine so uniquely recognisable.” © Unknown Worlds

Awesome.  Actual effective looking futuristic armor that still looks cool and a little larger than life.

The perfect outfit to be wearing when you’re killing weird aliens.

I touched upon this armor before, but the point is made much better with the images attached in the post 🙂
