Unless you’ve been living in a cave, on another planet, or the sun has burnt your brain, you are aware of what happened in World War 2, and how brutal it was. This chaotic festival of violence and hate has proven that no disease or virus is more lethal than humanity, and it also serves as a lesson to all of us, although many took it the wrong way. The theme of the latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise is exactly this – World War 2. A couple of days ago, the BETA version has been released publicly, so CoD fans can get a feeling of what to expect.
The BETA didn’t get the reception that Sledgehammer and Activison would want, which is nothing new considering the fact that we haven’t seen a proper, quality Call of Duty title in years. If you’ve ever played the good old Call of Duty 2 from 2005, you know what we’re talking about. But let’s not just focus on the common things that people hate about this game (sluggish weapons, massive amount of hackers, 5v5 setting in world war 2, small maps etc.), there is one thing that just does not fit in this game.
The people working on this game must be either completely ignorant, or high on crystal meth most of the time. We base this assumption on the fact that they included FEMALE BLACK SOLDIERS IN THE GERMAN ARMY!
Alright – the trend of alternative history games has been more and more popular since the first Assassin’s Creed game came out, but this… This is just insulting and ignorant. For those of you who don’t know – the Nazis didn’t just hate and kill Jewish people. No, they actually brutally murdered others too, and among the other groups were Romas and, yes, people of African descent. Nazi Germany had only 5000 black people living here in 1933, and they still hated them and wanted them dead.
Videogame streamer Dogiii published a rant about CoD:WW2, and he hits all the right points on this issue. Watch the video below:
WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE
We do have to admit, though, that the Singleplayer campaign is pretty accurate, when it comes to historical facts. The Black Nazis are only present in the Multiplayer game mode. We do, however, believe that this was a mistake in a game franchise that’s been a mistake altogether in the past couple of years.
