Playboy takes a unique approach to video game coverage with an exclusive nude pictorial in its October feature, “For Love of the Game,” which will hit newsstands and PlayboyDigital.com Sept. 13.
For the second year in a row, Playboy profiles several video game vixens including Avalon (Hellgate: London), Jacqui (Blitz: The League), Carla (Indigo Prophecy), Tala (Darkwatch), Faerie Queen (Playboy: The Mansion – Private Party), Oracle (God of War), Alexa (50 Cent: Bulletproof) and Cassidy (Darkwatch).
This year, the femmes fatale are featured on collectible trading cards in two separate editions of Playboy’s October Issue: Playboy’s Women of Gaming trading cards editions 1 through 4 and editions 5 through 8.
Each edition has four video vixens individually posing on one side of the card, while the other side contains one larger pictorial.
In addition to the digital spread, “For Love of the Game” previews the best video games debuting this fall. Darkwatch, 50 Cent: Bulletproof, and Madden '06 are among the titles picked by Playboy senior editor Scott Alexander.
