The boss of DICE has said “player choice and female playable characters are here to stay” after some people said they were upset with Battlefield V letting users play as a woman in the World War 2-set shooter.
Women feature heavily in Battlefield V’s marketing material, in the game’s debut trailer, in posters at reveal events and on the cover of the box. You can also play as a woman in the game.
Some people are upset by this, but in a strongly-worded statement issued to Twitter, DICE GM Oskar Gabrielson dismissed the complaints.
