Ladies Are Getting in on the Action
The first two Crackdown games had you play exclusively as male Agents. They were diverse in that you could choose their ethnicity, but that was basically it as far as character selection went. Realtime Worlds had talked about including female Agents in the first one, but cut them because they weren’t sure how they’d look when they were fully leveled up. It sort of ignores that there are actual women with visible muscles, but whatever.
For a few quick shots in the trailer, you can see that Crackdown 3 will let you play as a female Agent this time. Maybe they decided to axe your Agent being visibly more muscular as they level up. Or maybe Reagent Games decided that it’s 2015 and girls do wanna play as girls, shockingly. Either way, it’s a welcome addition and sure to please female fans.
