Way Too Much Chat Censorship In Battlefield V?

Battlefield V‘s open beta is happening right now, but it seems that DICE and Electronic Arts might have gone a step too far with the in-game chat censorship.

Inflammatory, offensive terms, such as „jew” or „Nazi” are censored and replaced by asterisks, which makes sense, as we’re talking about a World War II FPS game. Censoring such offensive words are alright. However, the word „DLC” (even written as d l c or without any caps and spaces) are also censored, which is weird, as Battlefield V is not going to have a premium pass or any expansions!

Electronic Arts „responded” in a forum post, and it’s your ordinary no-answer reply. They didn’t say why they ban the term DLC in the chat, but they said that the profanity filter would be tweaked not to censor „relevant conversations.” Eh, let’s move on to talk about the Firestorm mode then, which is Battlefield V’s battle royale mode.

Firestorm will have fourteen four-player teams (this is how the sixty-four players are split up), and they will be in the middle of an ever-shrinking ring of fire. You’ll have to complete objectives, which could be random(ly placed), or fixed (location-wise as well). If you finish these, you’ll get valuable equipment (ammunition, weapons, or vehicles), giving you more of a chance to survive than before. There will be tanks as well, so if you want to hop into a Panzer, you can do that in Firestorm.

There will also be pre-order bonuses for Firestorm, too. Pre-ordering the standard version of Battlefield V will get you the Firestorm Ranger Set, a Special Assignment, a set of Paratrooper outfit, and five weapons from Battlefield 1. Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition will get you all these, as well as twenty weekly items with airlift, multiple Special Assignments, and five sets of Paratrooper outfits instead of one.

After the delay, Battlefield V will launch on November 20 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
