Battlefield 2042 will feature the franchise’s first non-binary character in Emma “Sundance” Rosier.
The question of the character’s sexuality was asked by a fan of the series who noticed the use of they/them pronouns on character description pages.
EA Dice community manager Adam Freeman responded with a confirmation about Emma’s pronoun use.
Sundance is one of 10 specialists joining the cast of Battlefield 2042. They are specifically an Assault-type Specialist who comes equipped with a wingsuit that allows them to zip around the battlefield. They also feature smart explosives that can track targets.
The game is also inclusive of specialists with various nationalities which include Navin Rao from India, Dozer from Mexico, Ji-Soo Paik from South Korea, and Angel from Romania. Emma is from France.
Battlefield 2042 launches on November 19, 2021, for the basic package. Gold and Ultimate Editions buyers can play the game a week earlier.
