Despite the fact that a fair number of its games take place in the modern day, the Call of Duty series has never included women as playable characters in its main multiplayer mode. Hell, so far as I know, Tanya Pavelovna from the single player campaign of 2004's Call of Duty: Finest Hour is the only playable female character in the history of the entire series!
Until now, that is.
Revealed in a recent multiplayer trailer (about the 2:39 mark), the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts will allow gamers to play as female combatants in multiplayer mode.
Speaking to Kotaku, developer Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin confirmed that female characters have the same hit box as males so you don't have to worry about one gender having an unfair advantage over the other.
Knowing that, is the inclusion of women in CoD multiplayer a good thing or a bad thing?
Simple yes or no question this week, folks. Be that as it may, we want to know why you voted the way you did so please expand on your answer in the comments section below or in an email to us at SuperPACpodcast@gmail.com.
To be fair, I believe you can take control of Chloe Lynch in one optional mission of Black Ops II (once you find and rescue her anyway) so she might count too. And there have been two or three playable females in the various Zombies modes including Sarah Michelle Gellar.
