In the West, now the question of choosing the right pronouns is particularly acute, and Gearbox decided to make itself the most progressive studio: about the robot hero in Boderlands 3 you need to talk exclusively with the pronoun “they”.
At the very least, on the developer forum – you can get banned for regular incorrect calls! ’
This is a character named FL4K, who in the Russian version was dubbed the Z4LP. According to the statement of the moderator on the Gearbox forum, Z4LP was_and_created_ precisely with such pronouns, and this must be respected.
Since the use of incorrect pronouns in progressive places such as the Gearbox forum is considered offensive, moderators are already actively correcting messages with incorrect pronouns. The loudest of the dissatisfied, apparently, is waiting for a banhammer.
The Russian-language description of the character, alas, does not know about this and uses the pronoun “he”. Shame on you, right?
Meanwhile, Borderlands 3 publisher is sending detectives to bloggers who know too much about game development.
Do not miss the psychedelic game trailer! Her release will take place exactly one month later, on September 13th.
