They added only female ones, I hope that they will add male ones... What do you think guys?
This looks amazing and I would buy this right now... Look at that, black/red with a hoodie looks really cool... I hope they will add male "The Pig".
Pig is based on Amanda Young who happens to be female.
@OinkGirlMain please educate this heathen. "Male pig" ha! Who needs him?
Change the story, problem solved.. More money for them.
Kid, go play with tetris.
To be fair, nothing apart from licensing issues and extra effort in recording audio is stopping them, since Legion shows that they can do male and female body types for the same Killer provided they are comparable.
That being said, as a Pig player, I'm indifferent to a male Pig skin.
It's not a simple matter of just changed the story.
I've said this before but I'll say it again just because it worked with Legion doesn't mean it will work with any killer.
From the very beginning Legion was set up to be four individual people the backstory reflects this and there add-ons are very neutral or general if you would the only addons that reference a specific character are the mixtapes.
For you to change Amanda or pig to be able to have a male variant like Legion does you would have to.
1) Change the back story to be less exclusively centric around Amanda and more general ( like with Legion mention the other members and mentioned them getting taken) This would also mean you would have to cut out a decent chunk of the backstory where Amanda discovers she's in the entity's realm and breaks down before she rationalized why she's there what she has to do
2) Change the addons so they're not so Amanda centric. Currently the add-ons are very Amanda centric even if they don't heavily reference her the descriptions are still based on how she would interpret these items for example Amanda's letter is a direct reference to her whilst Johns Medical file is not a direct reference her but definitely is heavily based on how she would interpret that.
3) They would have to create different body types in animations for the male version of a pig
4) You will have to get a male voice actor to do all sounds that the Pig would make in trial. Whilst they use people in their own company for the voice acting which would save a lot of money in would still be a time consuming process.
5) This would be my personal favourite you would have to to get the licence holders agreement to it.
They have to agree to
the lore and descriptions for the add-ons
The male character
The male characters cosmetics
Again this is not a simple cross 2 words out of the backstory and say Hoffman was taken too.
Look how long it took before we got cosmetics for Amanda.
How long do you think it's going to take for them to come to agreement on all the things I've mentioned.
Hell you would have a better chance just asking for more cosmetics for Amanda like her saw 1 outfit and saw 2 outfit or like the robes that you pictured above.
If you want me to take a logic out and just what my general idea on how I would feel about a male Pig. I'm not fond of it in the slightest while I would be be lot more warm to the idea if it was Gordon or John being the male likelihood is it would be Hoffman and I despise his character with a passion.
Issue is, the Pig is only one person; The Legion is in lore multiple people
To be fair, IMO there's no real reason super special cosmetic skins should really care about the lore, as they are just that: super special cosmetic skins that aren't really canon. The devs would just have to make sure they stay within the realms of reason. In the case of licensed characters, it's technically a different story since the license holders might care, but if you can get them on board, I say you're good to go.
Not possible to code using male/female voice based on selected character.
Legion proved it.
You want Amanda running with Hoffman's voice?
You literally had everything I was gonna say.
Not to mention they would have to realistically give you one free male cosmetic similar to DLC extra cosmetics or like legion for gender. Which would be just a loss of profit for a company.
Oh yeah I completely forgot because it didn't occur to me
7) you would have to change the perk quotes and make them universal quotes currently the quotes on the Pig's perks are direct quotes from Amanda.
You would have to make them more universal.
Hangman's trick - "If you break the rules there will be consequences" Jigsaw/Pig
Surveillance - "Hello I want to play a game" Jigsaw/Pig
Make your choice- " The rules are simple live or die, make your choice" Jigsaw/Pig
Male 'Pigs' being a thing in Saw has no effect upon Amanda's canonicity in DbD. Her specific story, and the fact that she cheated in her games, is what attracted the Entity - Kramer and Hoffman wouldn't fit in the Lore of DbD, much less the established lore of the SAW chapter.
They could do the same thing they did with Legion. Different skins swap genders and characters. Would definitely work on the Pig.
I’m down with male and female versions of every killer and survivor to be quite honest. More customization the better.
Well, they dont need to add male one, but maybe they can add this skin to amanda, I mean it looks cool, i would buy it.
No it wouldn't because it wouldn't make any sense as to why there is a male pig when only Amanda was taken.
If they wanted to canonically add a male skin they would have to change a lot of things about the pig it is not as easy as you think it is.
Once again it works with Legion because they were established as multiple people from the very beginning. Pig was not
Technically speaking, The Pig in Dead by Daylight is Amanda Young. She's the only one here, there is no male Pig. Jigsaw himself wouldn't appear in the Entity's realm because he did not believe in killing people. He would give them a test, but how would not interfere. He believed that their life was in their hands, and their failures were their fault.
Now you might say, "But what about Hoffman?" That gets a shrug from me. I imagine the Entity didn't pick him before he died.
Maybe it's a licencing issue. They may just have it for Amanada and would need to discuss or pay more for another char from saw to join the game even as a skin.
maybe Amanda is non binary, we dont know.
Nice get hostile and toxic when people disagree.
But no. They specifically chose to bring in Amanda Young. Not "any pig from saw".
Shes staying a she.
Considering canonically and in movies she is referred to as she with no objections.
Yeah and let's just get female Michael Meyers and a bikini Leatherface while we're at it because it is doable?
No. This whole "we need both options and genders for everything and every character" is ridiculous.
And that's coming from a trans woman.
As long as they keep the high pitched squeak whenever you nail him with a pallet.
A shirtless Myers, and a "Beach Boy Bubba".. omfg, just thinkin bout Bubba in a bikini made my day ^^ - but, what´s the bikini made of? ....
His status is unknown.
@Carpemortum Maybe Bubba can pull off a bikini, who are we to judge...
I don't want to hear Amanda's voice over Hoffman whenever they get hit by a pallet :P. Plus they would have to change a ton of stuff probs
Wait, you don't want to hear Amanda when she gets stunned?
... we can't be friends.
If they are were to add male skins to Pig (which they arent) I would want all of the female characters to have male skins, then I want female skins for all of the male characters. I would totally love a Female Michelle Meyers or a Fergie Kruegar. "Just change the story..." Right? It would be all good Riiiiiigggghhht?!
Again not gonna happen...
This is supposed to be Legions gimmick, and it should stay Legion's gimmick since it is one of very few things Legion has going for it right now.
This is probably the best thing I have heard in a long time regarding gender.
