DICE: Battlefield will get female multiplayer characters, but "not just to tick a box"

"We've been looking at how much it's worth, compared to how much we'd have to sacrifice," says Patrick Bach. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

""We've been looking at how much it's worth, compared to how much we'd have to sacrifice,""

Sounds like something Optimus Prime would say in a transformers movie.

On topic, nice to see females getting some recognition in military shooters.

I'm not sure "buh buh but we'd have to record more voice-overs" is going to wash with a lot of people... I agree that you shouldn't do anything just for the sake of it, though.

Based on this interview I don't think we'll be seeing female characters in BF4. Maybe in BF:BC3.

As long as we actually get to play BF:BC3, they can put whoever they like in it :D

I'd rather hear women voices as pilots and in the in-game radio chatter.

They cant possibly do a worse job then Crytek with the portrayal of the female soldier.

Yea!facepalm.
Suppose to represent women not make model for male pleasure as the male model are looking realistic and dressed for combat.
Thinking about matal gear men and women in that series is dressed in sexualised styles.

It says cod got took a massive overhaul of system to include female soldiers why were they not done from the start and this was more recent decision. Makes sounds like it massive amount of work but I agree that it more work than people realise.It should be done right because a half job I think would get more backlash.Be nice when it standard to have female models for all games can reflect the women gaming community.

"We've been looking at how much it's worth, compared to how much we'd have to sacrifice" and a rib wasn't enough?????
Definitely going for the most useful quote of the year award.

So they don't want to go through the trouble of getting female voice actors? Pretty much sounds like they are being lazy, I don't care if I can play as a female or not.

But I hate hearing lame reasons why it couldn't be done.

It's not just that it also means when your online you have two separate models to load two sets of animations to load.You see it eats up resources.

if they add a female character it will truly be tea bagging when i drop them nuts on a knife kill.
