Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer Has Female Soldiers

As part of today’s official Call of Duty: Ghosts¬†multiplayer reveal, there’s a new trailer up on YouTube:

Astute observers — or those who simply watched most of the trailer — were quick to notice a particular addition to the game’s previously-known features: namely, the inclusion of female soldiers. One brave such gal (I say brave because she isn’t wearing a helmet — yikes!) is clearly visible at 2:39 in the trailer.

IGN reports that the female soldiers are playable characters in multiplayer. Ghosts‘ multiplayer will focus heavily on customization for characters — so while it isn’t what perhaps some players might have hoped for (such as a playable female protagonist for the single-player campaign), it seems Infinity Ward is putting some serious and laudable effort into enhancing the game’s customizability in multiple respects. It remains to be seen whether they will extend this customizability to the much-hyped playable dogs, however; no word yet on whether the tiny but dedicated Corgi-loving demographic can hope for similarly pleasant surprises from future announcements.

Today’s official multiplayer reveal can be viewed in its entirety¬†here.

About Bethany Quinn

A Los Angeles native, Bethany spent most of her childhood stubbornly resisting the siren call of popularity and social acceptance after becoming addicted to Pac-Man one fateful summer afternoon in 198(cough). Not long thereafter, she lucked her way into (sibling-shared) ownership of her first console, an original NES, and immediately set her mind to defeating some of its notoriously difficult games, one cheat code at a time. Now a putative adult with a day job, Bethany spends her non-working, non-gaming, non-Tomodoming time trading internet memes with her husband, Corey, and making up ridiculous nicknames for their two dogs*, Cujo and Ethel. *Possibly too small to qualify as actual "dogs."
