When Battlefield V was officially announced, we learned that there was a female character represented prominently in the game. That’s not a bad thing, but previous Battlefield games seemed to predominantly feature male characters, so to see female characters so prominently featured was surprising to many.
Not everyone reacted to the female characters positively and many felt that DICE was simply pandering to a certain segment of the audience, but DICE is sticking to their guns. In a post on Twitter, Oskar Gabrielson, the GM at DICE wrote, “Let me be clear about one thing. Player choice and female playable characters are here to stay.
He said, “We want Battlefield V to represent all those who were a part of the greatest drama in human history and give players choice to choose and customize the characters they play with. Our commitment as a studio is to do everything we can to create games that are inclusive and diverse. We always set out to push boundaries and deliver unexpected experiences. But above all, our games must be fun!”
The game will allow you to create female characters and there will also be various ethnicities to choose from, allowing more races to be represented in the game. Battlefield V will release on the October 19th.
