The issue is not that there is a woman in the game , it is that despite every historical account , a british , frontline fighting woman , who can somehow no-scope enemies after jumping out of collapsing buildings...with one prosthetic hook hand..is standing there quipping one liners and beating down germans with a razor wire cricket bat.
I dont care that she is a woman , I care that any sense of accuracy to any part of the entirety of world war 2 has just been set aside to pander to the little screamers calling for their own unique looking lone wolf soldiers in what was a war of millions upon millions of unremembered and unnamed soldiers.
The franchise so far has semi kept a semblance of accuracy towards the era their game represents, and some semblance of realism in regard to human beings and what they can do. but now there is a Mad Max looking one armed british commando woman who can fire high power rifles with one hand and a flimsy metal claw....accurately, after falling from a second storey window...
I have loved battlefield since i was a kid and played BF1942 for hours and HOURS on end...but this has crushed my hopes.
And yes this is just a reveal trailer that has nothing to do with MP or anything , but it still shows enough core parts of the game to show me whats to come.
I'm honestly just sad and gutted.
