FemShep Vote: Round 2!

August 17, 2011


In a brief new episode of BioWare Pulse, host David Silverman gave some exciting news from EA’s stage at GamesCom.

First off, not surprisingly, he announced that the blond FemShep ran away with the Facebook vote; however, what might surprise most is that voters didn’t choose her because of her hair color, but rather for the hair style. Thus, BioWare is giving the fans what they want, and are about to begin a second voting round for FemShep!

The vote comes down to one of four hair colors for FemShep: red, dirty blond, classic blond, and brunette. Fans can go to www.facebook.com/masseffect to see the new looks and cast their vote. The final results will be tallied and announced at the Penny Arcade Expo, which kicks off next week on August 26th, so get out there and make your opinion heard!

    I was hoping the one with black hair would win (that one’s closest to the Shepard I chose to play as) but it looks like the red head will win. Not a huge loss considering that the default FemShep is a redhead.

    Ah well. ME3 needs to come out sooner…

      Hah, I hear you. The hair color isn’t a big deal to me, but the facial features and the hair style do look awesome. Still, I can wait patiently as long as the game is simply the most complete and epic game experience I’ll ever have. Which it will. 😀

    Its to bad it would be great if you could customize her yourself lol. The graphics look amazing so far.

      True, but if you want to think about it, we aren’t losing anything here – for years we’ve been able to play as a unique male Commander Shepard, now we get the same chance with FemShep. If we could use her features in custom Shepards it might cheapen the vote. You can still make your own custom Shepard of course.
