I heard that the game uses custom characters that you can design for your own use.

Is this true? Does this mean we can use anyone in the German team?

There is supposed to be full character customization, but I can't confirm any details since customization wasn't enabled in the open beta.

However this customization has been taken way too far and while traditional uniforms and equipment is available, there's also lots of (IMO) stupid stuff like pilot helmets, leather jackets, prostetic limbs, blue face paint, Asian women fighting in the British army, Allied soldier with a katana on his back, etc. Besides completely ruining immersion it's basically impossible to tell who on earth you ran into and in the beta I basically could only tell the teams apart at first glance because friendlies have a 3D HUD icon above them and enemies don't.

Vehicles will also be customizable with upgrades changing their appearance (long barrel or side skirts for the Panzer IV for example) and with cosmetic items such as flags, mascots, camo nets, improvised armor such as sandbags, etc.

LOL, that is actually very brilliant. Imagine fighting as a black Nazi chick wearing officer's cap.

Everybody will feel like fighting their personal war in the World War 2-themed maps against a bunch of nobodies.

that's the point.

bfv is just a casual yolo game with just a minimal historical skin where the player can play an avatar that looks like them against others with various weapons and different anachronism to fit the gameplay (that's the reason why you semi auto-rifle like zh29 and turner prototype - because of the g43 specs  )
A casual game with a random context with a lifespan of 1 or 2 year before they release an other context and where player can grow their e-penis so they can show it to others.

Imo, they do it very well !

The only problem is they market it as a ww2 game whereas it is not the case
and this is the reason why people complain about anchronism

This.  All the this.  This is the same as BF1 and COD WW2- it's literally just a skin.

If they can't even get the UI right for PC, there's no way I'm buying this game.

Narvik was also just a infantry run&gun simulator as a map, does not impress. I just bought Insurgency for that kind of stuff, and it does it miles better. Maybe there will be a beta 2 with the push of release date, but based on this, it's simply not worth the money.

Anyone know if Natty still is part of the DICE team?



I feel this is a small wink to Forgotten Hope, but it can very well be just a coincidence.
