I will tell you guys right of the bat that I have no problem with the tone, style and the fact that women are part of Battlefield 5. Some people do not like the more crazy customization options thinking that it is unrealistic and not in the same tone as the WW2 setting that Battlefield 5 has.
I really do not know what people are complaining about. Call Of Duty WW2 allows you to have some pretty strange weapons in contrast to the setting and Battlefield has never really been a series that has been 100 percent concerned with being historically accurate.
During a recent live stream, Battlefield 5 producer had a lot to say about making Battlefield V more realistic he had this to say.
“We heard the community, we understand there were some concerns about, hey, where’s the authenticity? We want players to be excited about customizing their characters with authentic gear. We dialed it back a bit. It was pretty crazy. We wanted to offer some authenticity, and that’s important to us, that’s important to our players.”
I get what he is saying, but you really do not want to start bowing down to community pressure, especially in regards to something that really does not matter. While the WW2 setting is very well done, I for one have no problem with some of the crazier looking characters that I came across during the beta.
Later in the same live stream, he had this to say,
“Nothing is off the table. Again, we’ll watch how the community reacts, maybe we’ll try something. The nice thing about the armory, is we can put something out there, and if it doesn’t stick, it doesn’t stick. But first and foremost, we want to start with this authenticity approach.”
Now I am be reading into this wrong, but to me, it seems like they are going to tone things down a little bit and try to keep things more authentic, probably during the initial released. However after this, they may introduce weapons, camo and so on that is a little more out there.
I have to be honest and say that I am really surprised that this many people have a problem with Battlefield 5 and its level of “realism”. I for one like the style of the game and am looking forward to getting my hands on it when it is released this November.
