Ubisoft's Frag Dolls

Ubisoft’s Frag Dolls

The Frag Dolls are a team of professional female gamers recruited by Ubisoft to promote their video games and represent the presence of women in the game industry. We were able to catch up with three of the ladies, Valkryie, Pixxel and Daze, at the Lenovo and Social Media Club party, where they were in attendance to show off a new partnership between Lenovo and Ubisoft. Plus, all parties need some eye-candy, right?

We sat down and discussed a range of topics from how the girls all ended up with the Frag Dolls, best experiences at conventions and what’s in-store for the all-girl FPS team in the future. You won’t want to miss this one!
