An about-face on women’s dress code in ‘Warface’

If you happen to have played “Warface” — the free-to-play online military shoot-’em-up by Crytek that is currently in beta testing — in the last few weeks, you may have noticed a big difference between the male and female characters. Namely, the men are fully dressed for war, while the women aren’t.

This became clear when the female characters were recently added. One has fatigues styled in a way that reveals a skimpy, busty top. Another has a low-scooped shirt and a bare neck, and is quite well-endowed. The men, of course, are covered head-to-toe, save for their faces, and are wearing thick body armor, since that’s how people actually dress in combat situations.
