Sunset Overdrive keeps on making me happy. This colorful, irreverent approach to shooters was one of very few things keeping me from falling asleep during this year’s E3 press conferences. Following E3, and the massive backlash Ubisoft saw for not including a playable female assassin in Assassin’s Creed Unity, developer Insomniac Games threw a bit of shade Ubisoft’s way by showcasing the ability to make one in this game. Today in the newest episode of Sunset TV, where Brandon Winfrey shares updates on the highly anticipated title, it was announced that characters can switch between genders at any time during the game.
While answering a question about the ability to modify a character’s appearance after their initial creation it was said that,
“You can change any part of your appearance at any time. So that means body type, skin tone, anything. So if you wanna be a girl one day, do it, and you can switch back to a guy the next.”
