After the reveal of Battlefield 1, certain pockets of the internet got a little upset over the fact that the game featured people of colour. Cut to the release of Battlefield 1 DLC featuring a female fighter on its cover-art and the (most likely) same group got upset, again. Historical accuracy was the cry. As so once again, the perceived backlash was brought to the fore when the main art for the recently revealed Battlefield V showcased a female resistance fighter.

Apparently this is upsetting to some.

And so Oskar Gabrielson, the GM at DICE took to Twitter to double down on the studio's choices, and the fact that Battlefield is traditionally about fun first and foremost. Starting with, "First, let me be clear about one thing. Player choice and female playable characters are here to stay." Adding, "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 fun!"

If historical accuracy is the basis for criticising what we've seen of Battlefield V so far, then that's a valid stance to take - if one is so inclined. But only to a certain degree, and one that usually falls apart when cinematic ambition and fun sandbox shooting are the focus of an experience.

They could easily not have it and it would not be any less of a game. Some of the details I'm hearing are not sounding great but will have to wait and see. DICE seem to be stepping away from the core of battlefield and expanding what they do and put in games. Battlefield 1 was the first step, It was not as good at Battlefield 4 or 3. I don't think Battlefield will be the game ever again and that is not good.

Edit: I looked at some more info. Some of it seems interesting, I will need to see what happens in the beta for it. Whenever that gets released.
