Wars or battles evoke enormous emotions in people. Most often, they are associated with curses, thanks to which you can convey what you mean briefly and bluntly. The creators of Battlefield 2042 – DICE studio, which will block profanity in voice chat, is different.
Such a move is to be allowed by a special swearing filter, which will be introduced as part of the Positive Play action. DICE wants to fight the scourge of toxic behavior in players. However, the vast majority of them are against such a solution.
The discussion mainly on Reddit, where Battlefield enthusiasts say that it is intended for adults from the very beginning of the series’ existence, and there is not the slightest reason to disable the possibility of swearing. The game has the “M” classification, which means that we can find abusive terms spoken by the characters in the production. Reddit users thus ridicule the hypocrisy of DICE.
It is worth mentioning that the studio has already tried a similar practice on the occasion of Battlefield 5. However, this system completely failed because it caught and blocked words that had nothing to do with curses or insults.
Soon, on October 8, the open beta tests of the game will start (October 6 for pre-orders), which will last two days. The title can be tested by owners of PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. The official premiere of Battlefield 2042 is scheduled for November 19, 2021. What do you think about such activities? Are you for or against the introduction of censorship in a voice chat?
