Petition to Add Playable Female Characters in Aliens: Colonial Marines Reaches 2,500 Signatures

The Aliens series of movies is known to have female characters in vital roles. The main female is series' protagonist Ellen Ripley, but we also have Newt, Vasquez, Ferro, Lambert, The Alien Queen, and some from Alien: Resurrection I would rather not name. The point is, the Aliens movies have females in prominent roles, yet the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines game does not have any playable female characters in the multiplayer portion. Some gamers have noticed this and created a petition to add in female characters to multiplayer. Currently, the petition is over 2,500 signatures as of writing and shows no sign of slowing down. The creator of the petition, user MOOSH89, says she is not outraged at the lack of playable females in the multiplayer, but wants Gearbox to recognize the important role females have played in the series. Gearbox does not seem to have any problem with playable females in the Borderlands games, so hopefully it will listen to the petition and get the matter corrected in Aliens: Colonial Marines.
