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.

I will never understand why anyone cares. People are always so offended about… everything!

If I play a game where male/female can only barely be distinguished from each other, I enjoy it. If I play a fun game with dicks and boobs everywhere (“Hi there Conan Exiles!”), I still enjoy it.

The question is: “Is the game fun?”

Boobs in a terrible game don’t make it better. The lack of boobs in a good game does not make it worse.

The problem as I see it is just bad underoos. Way too tight and the bras suck, or so I have heard from a small portion of females. This is not about the overbearing American puritanism (this time). Seems more practical.

I’ve been dreaming with an MMO that allows me to dickcopter.

Please, hear my pleas, devs.

It’s only fair that the male models have bulges.

I assumed that the pain and embarrassment from wedgies is why all those people were trying to kill each other.

So what’s the problem here. The shape of the undies, or having that level of sex in a murder game?

I’m just waiting for more MMOs to have the cojones to have nudity. Second Life can’t reign forever. Although, with its scripted and actionable genitalia, perhaps it will.

That will happen as soon as they can monetize the demand:

“Now in the game store: six packs,camel toes,bull bulges…”

I’m afraid I just don’t see this as a “thing”.. women have genitals, a slight camel toe seen through underwear is hardly shocking..i mean seriously what are we FIVE? The male model has a visible bulge in the front of his shorts his so called package.. shouldn’t the same people be crying foul there too? Double standard much.

Noone should care that a vague outline of a genital exists its just simple biology, it isn’t creepy or gratuitous nor is it titillating, hell if that shocks people they should stay WELL CLEAR of Conan Exiles which has the full and real deal for both gender models and not hidden by underwear not that it should matter as people have genitals. Simple biology should not concern people at all.

This is such a juvenile complaint it saddens me greatly as to the lack of maturity of some people.

Also lets not forget the game has an M for Mature rating, which means anyone who is so impressionable the outline of a genital shocks them probably shouldn’t be playing a game about shooting and killing people in many and varied ways to begin with.

Yes apparently we’re all 5. “All them sweaty mens, showin’ their passion for one another…”

I only played Coann Exiles for like an hour, but aren’t the women in the game covered up by a wealth of hair down thair? While the men swing free and proud.

I’m not offended, but I suppose the deal is that there are aspects of your appearance that you would control if you had the ability whether in-game or IRL. I imagine showing of the outline of your genitals would be one of the things you would prefer have control over IRL and in-game and that most females would be against walking around reminding people about the shape of their junk. Since women play PUBG, it’d be wise to accommodate them. I do wonder if the same hubbub would have been made if this concern was brought up less publicly, but whatever.

In games we play humans.. humans have genitals, this is not news to anyone old enough to string a coherent thought together. Games generally don’t include them because it affects the rating and because genitals in games essentially serve NO purpose. However this is an M rated game were talking about all about killing people. And yet the outline of a genital through underwear is an issue for some people? Please its just ridiculous.
People cannot even use the excuse that kids might see them as this is again an M rated game that kids should not be playing anyway.
I also don’t believe its women having an issue to this as it isn’t a gratiuitous or titillating depiction it is just a vague outline. I suspect the ridiculously oversiezed boobs and scantily clad clothing of games cause them much more concern than the acknowledgement that a female may actually have genitals underneath it all.

Its just such a purile and childish thing for anyone to take offense over imo.

You certainly have strong feelings for something that’s so puerile and childish. Don’t worry Neo, you can google up some camel toe pics if you start to miss them that badly. =P

Well you know what they say “Those who stand for nothing, fall for everything”, so of course, because its BS we still have to deal with this nonsense our species is so one foot forward, two steps back all the time its exasperating :)

I am committed to all my beliefs in things, as I would always prefer to be the wolf than the sheep when it comes to opinions lol

This is the character’s UNDERWEAR we are talking about. Women IRL do not walk around in their underwear unless they intend on showing off their assets, so your argument is ludicrous.

The males have this big unrealistic outline of a bulge, not an exact outline of the dong details. It’s a far different thing.

The only thing they’re changing is the detailed outline of the vagina lips.

How you can look at the two, one a big vague wedge and the other a detailed outline of a vagina and think they are the same is baffling to me.

And after 30 years of 95% one way sexualization of just the female characters people are touchy. I get that you don’t understand it.

Anyway the big noise and uproar being made is by people upset that they’re changing it – like you. There was some pointing out and a tiny bit of noise about the model, but not much. They immediately said they’d change it and suddenly that’s when the uproar came, you guys all complaining and moaning that the company wants to change it (you couldn’t see it before with the old lighting so it never was an issue either way before).

Anyway I’d be 100% fine with them making the males show detailed outlines of their dongs rather than the vague bulge that is there now and they could leave the females like they are. No double standard, total equality, I’d so love for them to do that instead.

That’s why Conan Exiles isn’t an issue. Conan Exiles shows both bits if you have nudity enabled, it’s not a blurry bulge of of a skin sack for the male with a detailed vagina for the female. That’s true equality and why nobody complains about it. This here isn’t.

To be clear MewMew the only noise I have made is about it even being an issue anyone would even want to change it is moot, it is unimportant, it is irrelevant to anything. Not ONCE have I said anything about them changing it, only about people having an issue with a vague camel toe showing at all.

To hit on your other points it is EXACTLY the same, a vague camel toe suggestive of a vagina beneath the underwear is no different than the suggestive bulge in the males underwear preluding to a penis beneath. NO difference at all. And neither of them are anything anyone would or should need to have a problem with as they have zero importance they are just basic anatomy.

This issue has zero to do with equality, it has everything to do with people whining and making a fuss over a non issue…that the crotch of ANY game avatar is getting this much news is sad in every regard, that anyone would have an issue with it..even worse.
