In an effort to improve diversity in the game, H1Z1 developer has added female characters.


Female survivors can now be found throughout the world of H1Z1. Developer Daybreak added the new feature in a patch released last Friday.

You will be able to choose a female avatar in the main game and in Battle Royale.

Gamespot spoke to art director Sebastian Strzalkowski who confirmed that more skin tones as well as different head models will be added in the future.

According to Strzalkowski, the female characters are average looking albeit with athletic builds.

The rest of the patch notes can be found on Reddit.
