Today is International Women’s Day and Sony is honoring and celebrating this occasion with a free PS4 theme you can download from the PlayStation Store. The PlayStation family features many prominent women both in and out of games. Last year three of its biggest exclusives featured strong female leads including Senua from Hellblade, Chloe, and Nadine from Uncharted as well as Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn. Behind the scenes we have Shannon Studstill, Head of Studio at Sony Santa Monica, Ex-Naughty Dog legend Amy Hennig, and most of Media Molecule, including Studio Director Siobahn Reddy, to name but a few.
The theme was created by Maja-Lisa Kehlet an artist at Media Molecule and features Ellie from The Last of Us, Chloe and Nadine from Uncharted, Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn, Kara from the soon to be released Detroit: Become Human, and of course Francis from Media Molecule’s upcoming Dreams.
Sony also released a video of some of the amazing women who work on our favourite PlayStation games talk about their roles in game development.
