Battlefield 1

Battlefield 1 is set in WWI, but that's not why it has no women in it. It's because their inclusion wouldn't be "believeable," said former DICE coder Amandine Coget, even though women did serve in combat roles.

After the all-female team of Final Fantasy X-2, Square Enix is going the other way on Final Fantasy XV with a team of all men, of varying degrees of darkness, tallness and handsomeness. The most disappointing thing is that they're not a boy band.

We don't know much about the playable characters in survival horror We Happy Few other than the fact that there are three of them, and two of them need to be unlocked. At any rate, it looks delightfully twisted.
