    Female soldiers will not be playable in Battlefield 4


    Female soldiers will not be playable in Battlefield 4

    Publish Date 27/03/2013

    DICE rules out playable female soldiers, despite online whispers.

    Female soldiers will not be playable in Battlefield 4ís single or multiplayer modes, DICE has confirmed, despite rumours to the contrary.
    "I can already now say that you won't be able to play [as a] female in multiplayer," creative director Lars Gustavsson told VideoGamer.com during Battlefield 4's reveal event last night.

    And unlike Battlefield 3, which saw players briefly play as jet pilot Lieutenant Jennifer Hawkins, the same is true of the game's single-player, too.
    "When it comes to single-player, [in Battlefield 3] you shuffled around numerous characters as you played and it was more about the geopolitical events. This time around, everything from direction to actors, to how we built the engine to deliver the human experience and connection to these digital actors, weíve also chosen to go for one main character that you play, and with that, that is not a woman, as you might have noticed.
    "The geopolitics is more of a backdrop to what happens, itís more [about] you and your group, and we chose to pick a man for it. It seemed to suit the story."
    So why hasnít DICE opted to include playable female soldiers in Battlefield 4?
    "Trust me, there are a million things I would like to do," continues Gustavsson, "it's just that you canít pick them all.
    "I have the deepest respect for the men and the women who choose to do military service. It's not that anyone is better or worse. It's definitely a valid question that we asked ourselves."
    Rumours surrounding playable female soldiers first appeared last year in information rumoured to have leaked on a Chinese forum. Other information leaked by the source, including information on the game's three factions, appeared to be accurate.
    Battlefield 4 launches this autumn on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Next-generation versions have yet to be confirmed.

    It's not like it matters what kind of genitals your character has in a first person shooter anyways.

    It won't matter to most people but it is a shame that there won't be playable female characters.
    I can read your thoughts.

    Females are sleeker and thus harder targets.

    Just make them slower to compensate.

    I have a feeling If females were in a Fps there would be a lot more tea bagging in video games.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I'm not that fucked in the head lol. It's just making it a point to add them but not make them playable is just pointless to me. It's all about showing diversity but only to a certain extent. Not like I'm going to lose sleep over it though.

    I'm glad you think I sounded ridiculous and I totally agree with you. Now read the post above mine (first post in this thread) and see why I said it :P

    That's random. Why not just put female soldiers in the game?

    Who the hell cares. It isn't like you can customize your soldier's appearance anyway, right?

    You're just a random spawn with a certain aesthetic as dictated by your class.
