Call of Duty: WWII will let you play as a female soldier in multiplayer, developer Sledgehammer Games has confirmed. This is no big surprise, as the latest entries in the series have offered that option.
Studio boss Michael Condrey confirmed this for Call of Duty: WWII in a tweet (via CharlieIntel), responding to a fan who asked if there would be female characters in the game’s multiplayer.
In Call of Duty: WWII’s campaign mode, you mainly play as a male solider, though at one period of the game, you will play as a woman fighting in the French resistance.
According to another Call of Duty developer, Infinity Ward, technical limitations for character customization kept female characters out of past Call of Duty games.
Call of Duty: WWII launches on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A beta will be held prior to launch, with PS4 players who preorder getting a first crack at it.
