Emma “Sundance” Rosier, a Battlefield 2042 Specialist, isn’t a duo, making her the first character to be known as such in the long-running EA series.

Apex Legends, another EA shooter with its own variety, is also omitting this type of information in its official material. The Bloodhound, the only non-binary character in Apex Legends, has CV page He uses the pronouns “they” to describe them, but he does not shed light on this aspect of the personality. EA It often emphasizes these personality traits Through external channels, whether via social media or the press specifically.

It’s a small step up to popular shooter games, but it’s an improvement on having a large cast of playable characters that lack any kind of fantasy that reflects many people who play these games. Battlefield 2042 at least understands this and is doing something, however small, to represent them.
