Twitter Source (TL is pretty not safe for work, don't wander too far)





Some outlets have picked it up: WindowsCentral, VG24/7

There’s a flag for people who are gender fluid and there’s one for people who identify as poly – pretty much everyone is represented. In all, there are 19 different Pride flags representing the umbrella that is the LGBT community. It’s great to see.

Best of all, they’re not locked behind a paywall – you can craft any of the flags via play.
Lovely gesture.

That's pretty neat.

And I didn't realize there were that many pride flags.

how long until we see a flood of YouTube videos suddenly complaining that the new Gears is pandering to SJWs

Dang that's very cool. Funny to see the Social Injustice Warriors get triggered by flags in a video game lol what a pathetic bunch of losers 😂

I hope that's in-game currency only, hah. Great to have this available, not great to directly profit off them.

Not America
I can already imagine the raging fury of the fragile right wing snowflakes going to social media and incoherently typing mumbling rants with "SJW" and "Woke" and "Broke" being part of their banal tirades.

I was going to rent this game, but now I feel like buying it to support stuff like this.

Of all the games to do something like this, I never would've expected it to be the game with chainsaw guns.

I wonder just how big of a shitfit people will throw over this. Had no idea there were so many different pride flags though. Some cool vexillology material.

There’s something kinda amazing about a game series that’s the poster child for over the top machismo also being considerate enough to have pride flags.

Great inclusion by the devs.

Hoping I can get an adult response here as i am genuinely curious...
Why does this matter in a video game?
