If it was claiming to be 100% historically accurate, I would care... but it's not. Just looking at the trailer's thumbnail you can tell it's not taking itself seriously.

There are hardcore realism games like Squad, Post Scriptum and ARMA, and then there's Battlefield and Call of Duty, which pander to sales. Appreciation for historically accurate games has gone down the drain, because there's so little to work with (from our perspective at least - how many times do we have to take back France from the Nazis?!).

It's not a political statement, it's a game about shooting other people and having fun. With WW2 weapons. There are many things to be concerned about in today's world and this game is not one of them, lol.

DICE isn't using the term "Historically accurate" as far as I know, but they do keep saying "Authentic WWII experience" they just need to replace "Authentic" with "Fantastical".

It wouldn't do much to pleasing those wanting something "authentic" but at least it would be more true to what the game is. Complete fantasy.
