BFV single player campaign will be built around small war stories again like in BF1

There will be a Norwegian resistance campaign with female protagonists, with elements of gay love story.

There will be a British air force campaign with white male protagonists.

There will be Algerian campaign narrative with all black protagonists.

There will be even a German campaign, for god sake, so today's Germans don't get too offended.

But there will be no campaigns for major WW2 protagonists such as Soviets and Americans.

The German campaign will no doubt be a Trump voter in disguise. Much like Wolfenstiens 2 subtle as a brick modern America portraying them as enjoying beheading with a smile.

Disgusting propaganda.

Russians are very hard, I've seen footage of one splitting an apple with one hand, and would rather that was the whole campaign. Even their woman were hard but they got ignored in favor of tumblr.

Actually it will be not-all-germans-were-bad type of a story. About a Tiger tank crew who tries to survive the final stages of war. Ironically might be the best war story among all that SJW parade.

They won't be bad because they are unsure Trump Voters, who realize the ways of the left.

Rejoice!

Here's hoping the German campaign will be good. Like Der Untergang. Poor Hitler. Poor Nazis. Crazy Russians.

Nice, we have billions of games telling about American or Soviet front, its nice to play on minority side.

That said, passing this game.

I don't give a flying rodent's backside about BFV, and I hope it crashes and burns and take EA down with it.

That said, as I understand it, the devs were going for an "untold stories" style single player mode. Stories about Americans have been done to death, so I could see how that would not qualify. I suppose Eastern Front stories have also been done too.

And the Norwegian girl is looking for her mother.

But sure, go ahead and over-interpret things to feed your personal sense of "injustice." I hear it's the hip thing to do these days.

I think you imagining the gay story segment - when the two are actually Mother and daughter - tells us how ignorant and insecure you are.

From what I've seen, the sp campaigns look brilliant. Playing as a German changes things up a bit, and as far as not having US or Russian forces, it's a video game....not a documentary.

The injustice brigade. Their sad crusade continues.

On to the next fake outrage.

You know how we know this is fake?

The BFV teaser keeps getting lied about. She had pink hair, cyborg arm, performing unbelievable feats.

Um, it's a metal prosthetic, that existed at the time, and she had blue streaks under her eyes. We have video proof of this but they perpetuate a lie about it in every comment section. This is truly the Trump era of blatant lies and misinformation.

@Bread_or_Decide:

More like the era of nuclear-hot takes that sacrificed brain cells for raw blinding speed - emphasis on "blinding." People just rush to react to everything without putting any thought into their reactions and what they're reacting to.

This is why I don't have a social media account.

@Vaasman: they certainly were a tiny minority in this war like nearly all the other player characters in this campaign.

But the real heroes are being largely erased.

That's some patronizing bullshit. They picked some kids who took last places in the competition and gave them medals for some special effort. If anything, Soviets have been underrepresented in videogames. We haven't got a decent Soviet Campaing from a AAA developer in a fooking decade. But hey, they had time to whitewash Germans and Norwegia, who sided with Germany during WW2. Yeah, who cares abour sories of Russian female snipers, pilots, medics and resistance that actually truly represented females in WW2, who were most vulnerable in the war. Instead they decided to tell a story about some Norwegian girls, who despite their country allying with Germany in WW2, changed the course of war by stopping by themselves Germany from developing first nuclear weapons. So here you go, SJW rewriting history inventing heroic acts that never happened, because, according to Dice, true female effort during WW2 was not good enough for Dice to write about. Enjoy your rewrited history. And once again, i remind you we have females on Soviet side who did incredible acts of heroism, who saw real combat and horrors of war. But, hey, they were on Soviet Side, so their effort doesnt count 😊

basically if a minority, female or any non straight sexual person is treated the same as as a straight male you can pretty much count on the Right wing SJW army to go into full tears.

peroid.

I never seen an example that was not exactly as I have described. Not a single example where the 'role reversals' somehow showed any poltical agenda OTHER than the role reversal itself.

If you have an example, show it

My real strife here is that they had time to white wash Germans and Norwegians, who had sided with Germany during WW2, but they conveniently omitted political incorrect today's countries like US and Russia. If anything, we haven't had a decent Soviet Campaing in a decade in shooters. If they go to represent everyone, then they should represent everyone, even those they don't like. Apparently, they liked Germany enough, but not Americans and Russians. For all i care, they can make a black muslim gay on a wheelchair take all germans by himself, but I also want real heroes honoured too.

Keep in mind, nothing in this new trailer feeds their narrative.

Dice says it's small stories from around the world.

The woman in it is not in an army or in the trenches.

They still mad tho.

That's like being mad that inglorious basterds killed hitler even after tarantino tells you he's doing his own thing, not making a documentary.
