So, yesterday when I first saw the trailer I was upset like a lot of people, but I have more concerns than just the women in the game. Personally I feel she does not fit, and had she not been in the trailer but in the game, or not been featured so heavily, the uproar would not exist.
My issues right now are with what info we have been given from DICE about this. We know that they wanted to make a WWII game, and that at launch, I believe they said they wanted to focus on the early parts of the war such as the Fall of France. I saw a list of starting regions and it included France, North Africa, and other parts of Europe. No Eastern Front content. So we can assume that at launch we will see the start of WWII.
This concerns me with what we saw in that trailer. Many of the tanks and other vehicles we saw did not exist when France fell. The Tiger was a direct result of the T-34 in Russia. Same with that V1 rocket. Some of the customization's such as the war paint were used by Airborne troops, which we saw. But that would not have been the case during this trailer. The trailer seems to take place during Operation Market Garden, which would explain the rocket and the Tiger tank. But that means that either at launch we already have all this, and that the exclusion of the Eastern Front is just that, an exclusion, or DICE has no idea what happened during the actual time frame of the war.
I honestly no longer know what to think of Battlefield. And my concerns run deeper than just what we saw in that horrible trailer.
If they come out and say that this is an alternate history game, I will be 100% fine with everything I saw. Currently this is not the case for me. Feel free to share your thoughts about my thoughts.
