So it looks like the next Far Cry has been announced. We don’t know whether its a Blood Dragon style expansion, or like Primal in that its a full fledged package. And in what seems to be the new norm, very politically charged promotional art that is sure to make everyone in the gaming sphere rationally and calmly discuss the merits of this game.
As for me? Sorry Ubi, you’ve lost my trust with this series. The cover looks rad imo, but the promotional material for FC5 also was fucking rad and that game is a big ole political turd. I’m not getting fooled again. And while GG esque folks have infinite knickers to get into a twist, i’m doubtful many leftist are gonna be as on board.
And aside from the usual “oh ho ho, reverse the races and imagine the outrage, really makes you think hmmmmmmmmm” bullcrap, it seems the usual suspects are really up in arms about the color palette, the bright pinks and blues seeming to invoke a “These colors are for women and 12 year olds, therefore ugly”. its not hard to understand why this is a line of criticism, but its just exasperating watching the usual crowd latch on to fucking anything to make a point.
