Treyarch’s Jason Blundell sat down with IGN to talk about their decision behind allowing female playable character in Black Ops 3. Blundell says they originally wanted to have an option for male or female in Black Ops 2, but couldn’t because of limited technology of last-gen.

“The power of current-gen meant we could do it,” he explained. “We actually thought about it back during Black Ops II but we knew it’d end up getting cut because of the amount of time, space and assets needed to fully realise a customisable player character. It just wasn’t worth it. But this time we thought we could do it justice in terms of personalisation, with full mocap and VO data for everything.”

“It’s interesting, because the movie Alien? That was actually written for a man but then they hired Sigourney Weaver and just left the script alone. That’s why she comes off as such a strong, confident character. So we did the same – we wrote a gender-neutral script and the actor brings their personality and gender to the words… but it doesn’t pander to either.

“Then the other reason was talking to our military guys, they were really pushing the fact we’ll be seeing a lot more women in military roles going into the future. We’re talking about 2065, not just in support roles, but in active combat. So we have a female protagonist, but also on the battlefield as well – there’s women there too.”

Patch Update 1.33 for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 live now

Published

on

A new patch update for Treyarch’s 2015 release, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, is now live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The patch update is version 1.33 and is 1.5GB on PS4 and 2GB on Xbox One.

The new patch update does not appear to bring any new content to the game. It may be similar to the Call of Duty: WWII update that released last week, in that it’s a new security update to match state privacy laws.

This is one the first updates for Black Ops 3 in a long time. The company stopped supporting the game after Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s content season went into full gear.

We will update if notes are provided.
