map Here again, this time calling on Ubisoft to change the cockfighting mini game from Far Cry 6, Calling in-game activities “beautify cruelty”.
“Turning a terrible blood sport like cockfighting into a mortal kombat-style video game is far from true innovation, because today’s society strongly opposes forcing animals to fight to death,” said Alicia Aguayo, senior Latino manager at PETA In the statement.
“The roosters used in cockfighting are equipped with sharp spurs that can tear flesh and bones and cause painful and fatal injuries. PETA Latino urges Ubisoft to replace this condemned little game with a little game that does not glorify cruelty.”
The Far Cry version of the blood sport is a bit dreamy and overdone—to be honest, it looks like a budget improvisation of Rooster Fist—we can see why PETA has problems with the description of the event. In my opinion, it tastes quite bad.
This is not the first time that a video game has attracted PETA’s attention. The team has an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Guide, which introduces the most ethical gameplay, called Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag’s whaling “disgusting” and so on.
Since its launch last week, “Far Cry 6” has had quite a few problems. Earlier today, we reported on the problems encountered by players who bought the physical version of Far Cry 6 on PS4 in the UK when trying to upgrade the game to the PS5 version.
Our review of Ubisoft’s latest open-world excursions pointed out that Far Cry 6 is an “interesting guerrilla sandbox, a bit shallower than it is.” Check out our complete Far Cry 6 review in the link.
