Far Cry 4 Will Be Teeming With Female Characters to Shoot

By   /   Jul 2, 2014

Now, before you start reading this, know that the views in this news are strictly of Far Cry 4’s creative director Alex Hutchinson and not mine! I love women, even in the video games. Hell, I even let Citra live and Jason die in Far Cry 3.

Anyway, to provide a more close to reality experience, Ubisoft’s upcoming Far Cry 4 will be teeming with female NPCs than male ones. The game’s creative director has confirmed that almost half of the game’s antagonists and rebel fighters will be ladies. Too close to reality, eh?

Hutchinson confirmed that out of 4 main antagonists, 2 of them will be women. Along with this, one of the main leaders of the rebel faction will be a woman.

[The developer] tried very hard to make sure of the four main antagonists; half of them are women, which is cool. On your side, one of the main leaders of the rebel faction is a woman; half the rebels that fight with you are women. It’s packed to the gills with women. They’re everywhere, just like life.

Not only this, Hutchinson has also stated that Ubisoft Montreal came very close to introducing a female character as a co-op partner:

It’s really depressing because we almost… we were inches away from having you be able to select a girl or a guy as your co-op buddy when you invite someone in.

The reason why it didn’t work out so well is because the developer was lacking in certain features to make a perfect female protagonist:

And it was purely a workload issue because we don’t have a female reading for the character; we don’t have all the animations. And so it was this weird issue where you could have a female model that walked and talked and jumped like a dude.

What’s your take on this?
