By no means does this entail that EA and DICE’s Battlefield V is a good game, but it does show that red-headed female frontline screeching soldiers that would fit perfectly into Fortnite do not bode well with the Battlefield community. Given that this marketing campaign focuses on the Pacific front with soldiers that seem plausible to the scenario, the like and dislike ratio pales in comparison to the FPS game’s reveal trailer.
When EA and DICE revealed Battlefield V last year, many boycotted the game because of the social justice diversity, the departure of what made Battlefield “Battlefield,” the devs’ smug mentality to say things like “if you don’t like it, then don’t buy it,” mocking gamers and fans of Battlefield at a launch party, and other things like delays, shallow content, and broken features.
After hackers ruined some games for PC goers, and others around the world not being able to play the battle royale mode Firestorm (due to the lack of players), frustration bubbled up from the community over to the devs in that DICE general manager, Oskar Gabrielson, had to apologize for the state of Battlefield V:
BF community – I know you are frustrated and disappointed with the experience across Chapter 4 for Battlefield V. I’m really sorry.
We’re taking a step back to improve the quality of BFV, and as a result, making needed changes to our roadmap.https://t.co/HQzXKBBFwR

Given that chapter four was and still is pretty much a train wreck, the devs are trying to start chapter five on a good note by taking things back to the basics. One way to do this is by showing a new trailer set during WW2 without a deformed red-headed third-wave feminist killing people on the frontlines:
Missions like Iwo Jima and Wake Island will make an appearance in this update, much like the Japanese Type 4 (M1) Garand rifle potentially winding up in the game at a later time.
If I were you, I’d steer clear of BFV. However, those looking to jump in and experience the game that is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One can expect to see chapter five go live on October 31st, 2019.
