Battlefield V’s Censor Isn’t Working Great

It’s only been a few days since the Battlefield V open multiplay beta started, and it’s already causing controversy. Veteran Battlefield fans claim that it’s “too slow,” some fans feel that the guns run out of ammo too fast, and even the censor has caught flak for blocking phrases and words like “DLC” and “white man.”

Funny enough, “free DLC” is allowed without censorship. And given that “free DLC” is one of Battlefield V’s main selling points, some fans are speculating that the profanity filter was intentional.


But since the controversy, EA has stated that the profanity filter is not working and will be fixed upon full release. The company also claims that in addition to censoring the wrong words and phrases, it is allowing some censored phrases to pass through.

Battlefield V launches November 20 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
