Huh. Well, that would certainly be appropriate. Actually nice to see that there is a line that cannot be crossed, feels like you already get away with way too much.

Such is the power of the cop.

Now you could easily say the climate stuff is purely for level destruction and throwing another obstacle at the players and DICE has done this before in BF4 etc.

But how does a refugee population factor into gameplay? Is it a.. faction made up of refugees? Is there a gamemode around refugees? Because ive heard the game doesnt even have a campaign this time around so how does that work?

There's no politics in this game about real political issues facing the world right now.

They've added a war crime PvE mode. You'll have a border checkpoint to defend and the less people you let through and the more refugees you bomb and shot the higher score you get. There's no risk of being shot so it's just to show everyone else how much of a monster you want to be.

I might actually get Battlefield 2042, since it has a interesting military setting. Instead of it being in the far future with exo suits and space ships. It looks like half the vehicles and guns in the game is going to be military technology in current development in the real world.

Finally bought and beat Project Wingman, and if that wasn't the most old-school Ace Combat shit I ever played. It was short but I had a blast.

It was everything I loved about AC:0 with none of the anti-war sentiment you usually find in AC games. I mean, I get it guys, war is bad. But I want to fly planes fast and blow shit up in my arcade fighter game, not think about the ramifications of modern warfare and the complicity of your average nation in human suffering. It helps that Cold War went so hard on the OST.

Dice wanted to do something punchy was a social issue and EA wanted to cover it's ass so as not to lose a certain demographic. It's absolutely making social commentary, EA just doesn't want to call it that so they don't lose money.
