PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds tweaks female model’s creepy underwear
So how detailed do the dude-parts and lady-parts in your online games that are ostensibly about murdering each other really need to be?
Apparently not that detailed. Over the weekend, a handful of gamers pointed out that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ new lighting mode as being tested on the PTS has revealed that the female player character’s underwear and concomitant naughty bits are, uh, significantly more revealing and gratuitous (not to mention uncomfortable) than they appear on the live servers.
PlayerUnknown himself has tweeted that prior to the lighting changes, nobody realized the model looked that way, that it was an outsourced graphic going on two years old, and that consequently the model will be duly altered so it’s not, you know, creepy.
That didn’t stop a whole bunch of dudes from crying about how the game is “made by men for men” and how anyone offended by the unnecessary inclusion of wedgies and cameltoe in a survival shooter should get off the internet. So you know, just another day on gaming Twitter.

After looking into this, it appears it came as part of the character model we received from an outsourcer when we first started the project. The file itself has not been changed in 2 years. It will be updated shortly with changes! Sorry for any offense caused!
