Battlefield 5 To Have Lead Female Character, Weather Effects, And More Info - Rumor

Battlefield 5's existence is confirmed as much as an unannounced game's existence can be- and it is widely speculated to hit later this year. Meanwhile, new rumors keep cropping us that tell us more about what kind of game we can expect with DICE's fifth outing- such as this newest leak, which hints at a very different Battlefield game than any we have had yet.
Quote:
The rumor comes from YouTuber IceManAuz, who apparently had an anonymous insider approach him. According to the rumor, it seems as though weather will have a big role to play in the game- so much so that battles could be affected by weather conditions such as storms or tornadoes. The game is apparently going to be set in a future North America, and will see the government wrestling with a military coup. Extremely importantly, it appears as though the protagonist this time around will be female- a refreshing change for a genre traditionally marked by having generic white male protagonists.

Female lead, let me guess... there will be outrage?

Tornadoes? If I die from a flying cow or tree I'll rage so quick... but as long as it's just visual I'm all for it

Sounds cool if true.

I'm definitely looking forward to a next Battlefield game.

Some people seem to be kicking up quite a fuss over a female lead, pretty sad to be honest. There's nothing wrong with that.

If anyone reach 3 of any game series, they should use profit to create something entirely new instead of becoming lazy and milking gamers which is ultimately what most companies do in the end

Yes there's nothing wrong with that, I'll gladly play with female characters watch films with female leads (feminine "female") and so on... unless I'm being forced on by nonsense.

And yeah, that film was hilarious!

If any of this is true:

They could put a monkey as the lead character. BF single player campaigns (Hardline included) have been awful since BF3. DICE is just doing this to be trendy, catering to an agenda. I'll

and move on.

So, looks like a 'weather system' will take over the Levolution gimmick we saw in BF4. Only 3 maps had any real change to them after a Levolution event occurred. Parcel Storm, Siege of Shanghai and Gulf of Oman 2014.........and two of those were weather changes.

Same, not sure why everyone is taking the SJW thing so far.. We can at least wait and see what type of character she is.

I'm all for going against censorship and giving devs the freedom to put what ever they want in their games, but us calling every female/minority that's in a game something just to please SJW's is nonsensical.

They will give her tiny breasts, so there will be no chance of protest. Just like star wars and all modern movies.

busty = sexist

flat = progressive

Bonus points if they show her beating up an aggressive male in a cut scene.
She will probably be some vaguely non-white character with a foreign accent. There's no way they
will use a real person you might see in the army, like a short, tough black woman who is in charge of
convoy operations.

I am willing to bet that there will be a "as good as a man" cut scene in the trailer where some muscle bound guy
gets his ass beaten by the 2strong4u female lead.

You know who I would want to see in the game? A real kind of female soldier, not some carefully crafted hollywood gymnast mocap nonsense.

http://www.salem-news.com/articles/may052010/perez-honors.php

I want to see a character like Lt. Perez, a real soldier who gave her life for her country.
You need look no further to find the kind of character to put in the game. Craft a character who is similar to her.
You don't need to invent some politically correct Frankenstein when you have real heroes to emulate.

I hope they do that and don't awkwardly shoehorn a bunch of traits into a female character.
