DICE's Andreas Morrell talked again about the vanity items in Battlefield V, saying that they need to be believable as it won't be steampunk.
Lol..the reveal trailer says different It's like an alternative steampunk WW2 game.
What things weren't aviable during ww2 that were in the trailer?
It’s about about things they showed it was the overall style It’s how they’ve approached WW2, bright, colourful, men with shirts off, light hearted, War paint, weird hairstyles and facial hair which go against that timeframe or seem out of place. The prosthetic arm didn’t help. It came off as an alternative world
Every time I begin to think EA is finally going overboard with bad business decisions. I see guys like you who remind me that EA is not only doing just fine, but are brilliantly fooling their customer base.
Such a shame Steven speilberg didn't display the historical accurate items in saving private ryan! Where were the tribal tattooed women amputee's in that classic film? Shame on him and that generation I say!
Since you asked - female brits on the front line with very advanced prosthetic limbs. Obviously the OTT action is also unrealistic but heck, it's a game and they have artistic freedom. Same thing goes for the character diversity. Comments like this, however, make it seem like they're trying to kid themselves.
It’s not which of it wasn’t in ww2, it’s how overblown the trailer made it as if that was a full on norm
@-Foxtrot I agree generally with your point, but I don't see why the color is such a huge issue. Sure, most WW2 films and games use a certain color scheme, but it's not as if that time period was any less colorful than going outside is today.
LOL, suddenly DICE Is concerned their game needs to be believable? Can't stop laughing....
A woman soldier with a prostetic arm riding through a battlefield on a bike while sniping the enemy on the western front. You know what kind of kickback a sniper rifle has? There is no way you can hold onto it with a prostetic arm. A scottish dude jumping through the second floor window with a katana om his back. Other than that....ok I guess.😁
Was it common for female Brits to be on the frontline with prosthetic limbs? I'm going to guess it wasn't.
That arm, for one. Prosthetic arms back then were not functional like that.
I know right, that's all I got from the trailer that it would be DICE version of WWII with robot arms and steam punk look, color your hair however you want, play as a women with robot parts change your boots and uniform to whatever... LoL -At least that's how it seem from the trailer....
First, that was a prostethic arm. People had that in ww2. The hairstyles are real hairstyles that could be wore. people were forced to be bald alot in war but you don't see people crying when you see the characters with hair. The first trailer was nowhere as bad as people are claiming. They're just showing options you can get over time. If you look at the gameplay etc. that's been shown so far, it's just basically how BF4 customization was but you can actually do more than clothes which already made no sense by all this non logic. Because you can wear any war clothes despite the situation as long as you unlocked it. Same with the guns. I use to have a all red paint on my gun I believe it was even though I was playing in a snow level etc. Doesn't matter, People are so damn annoying and extra
I keep seeing everyone throw around steampunk, but I feel like most of you who say that don't know a whole lot about that aesthetic. Go google it. A crude prosthetic arm in the 40's does not make it steampunk.
Why don't you read the damn comment they gave. Then your dumb comment wouldn't make sense to you or anyone here. They've done extensive research and said they're only adding what existed then. A Prosthetic arm was used in WW2 so you can see it in the game. The samurai Sword was put in because a man has confirmed kills using a Samurai Sword in WW2. He used a sword and bag pipes. DICE said don't be surprised if that's not put in somehow too. The point of this game is to highlight the things not very known etc. in ww2, so it actually makes alot of sense that they added customization options that existed but were extremely uncommon or even the 0.00001 percentage. If they find proof it existed, they plan on using it. That's called dedication and the reason DICE is a successful Dev while you seem to have time to comment on 90% of N4G posts
Here’s another one...
Another one what? You better not be speaking real profile. This is my only one on N4G and is the same as my PSN. You can't even respond properly because you have nothing to say lmao. Stop the non sense please
Oh I have plenty to say...just not to people like you You are just a waste of time...I nothing you
I think they are specifically referring to ideas like you aren't going to find super wacky goofy out of place stuff like someone running around in pink polka dots and a pirate hat. There is a difference between wackadoo crazy and items that fit within their feel and aesthetic.
I believe in "meh".
Believable went out the window with that first trailer.
If they'd simply showed their E3 conference trailer at the reveal event, instead of that awful reveal trailer, the reveal would have been received sooooo much better. Instead they've been stuck in defense mode with the PR ever since, lol.
"The most immersive WW2 experience" "We are not creating steampunk" Have they actually seen their own trailer?
A game can be immersove without being 100 percent realistic. A great example is the metro games, or games like BioShock Infinite. Immersive and being accurate to reality in a gameplay context are not the same thing, though I can see why people seem to think that way. It's all about drawing you into the experience. Aso, guys, steampunk is a very specific aesthetic. Love or hate this game, it is not steampunk.
I'd love to hear actual counter arguments rather than a lot of empty "disagrees."
No they aren't creating steampunk, just Fortnite. Theres a bunch of complaints with the voice lines being god awful in the alpha on top of this too.
Honestly all that matters to me is that it's been confirmed that Medics get to use my favourite gun the MP40. I just hope you can put a okay scope on too
I'm sure that will be an option. Now to see if LMG Medics have made a return after BFBC2
I remember using that medic in bad company 2. Man they were dangerous when you got the hang of it Apparently from a video I watched, a guy said you can be 2 different types of medics so maybe
Umm, so fully functional claw hands are believable in the 40’s?
DICE is confusing everyone with their direction for this game. One minutes it's supposed to be as close to the real thing as possible, the next we get whatever you want to call the reveal trailer. Stick with one and roll with it. Trying to please both sides will only result in chaos and a divided fanbase.
DICE is confusing me. They kept on saying that they are not the History channel and this is their interpretation of WWII. So basically, they are crearing a fantasy game. Now, it needs to be belivable? So which is it than?
So real we're going to give players bionic arms.
Becuase functional robotic arms in WW2 are believable.
Modern games seem to need a Connor Mgreggor look alike now lol that Destiny 2 cover.
Really need to leave out the face paint. Not sure there was blue face paint going on back then. Really cheapens the look and feel
Lmao cue the basement arm chair historians
Your disgusting reveal trailer says otherwise
You know what? If they went Steampunk AU WWII, people would actually be a lot less pissed.
Nothing could make me want to buy this game.... the Battlefield franchise is dead. BF3 was the last decent BF. BF and CoD are in the same boat together now. The kiddies love it! There is no good modern war game on the market with Clan Support and what's needed for large groups of friends to play together. My PS4 is going on the shelf to collect dust. As for the PS5... don't need it.
That's the problem these days, developers spend hours going on about whats not going to be in a game, rather than what should. I.e offline bots/arcade mode and such
