I know this may not be the post, but in character creation, you decide what state you want your battle scream comes from? Leaves less confusions? Just a suggestion


And if you deice to do this, get fans from these respective state to put on the heaviest inter-state accent they can put on.

FSE may allow for voice selection in the character creation screen but I am unsure yet.

Ah cheers that is very helpful. What about for the North? What was the standard accent of the time that still exists today?

Well, Northern accents vary, from , , and many others... really depends where they're from.

#Random Examples

Maybe a dialed down Philly, but Boston is a bit strong. Again I think a weak southern indiana accent would work.

I was thinking Philly was good as well. New York and Bostonian accents are far too regional, and you wouldn't hear them anywhere outside of those selected areas, so they're not the best accents for representing the entire Union.

However, I have a question. Will each regiment get a different accent, or are they going to be the same across the faction? It would be interesting to hear a Brooklyn regiment with a brooklyn accent and a Texan regiment with a Texan accent, rather than just a generic northern and southern accent.

That would be pretty cool. Dibs on Bronx lol.

That would be absolutely badass. That feature was quite fun in Uncharted 3.

Thats a pretty good point, it would be pretty cool to have a German regiment in there if there was actually one. I'm to lazy to do my research right now.

In the 11th corps of the union army, the main language was german. Whole regiments and brigades spoke german for the official orders. So the language was pretty important!

One of my ancestors moved from Prussia to the United States and fought there as well. I don't know much about him but apparently he first served in the Prussian army and then in the Union army. He served as a colonel in the 103rd New York Volunteer Infantry, 1861/62, he was later wounded in the war and was given a commission as brigadier general. He later  returned to Germany in 1878 where he later died, possibly or in part due to the wound he had sustained during the war flaring up to cause infection.
