You can already play one of the most anticipated titles of the year: Far Cry 6. The game of the French Ubisoft, which recently suffered criticism from players at the announcement of its battle royale, resumes the formula of the old episodes, which besides reproaches him of many people. Despite everything, some additions land in this Far Cry 6. But one of them is already controversial when the game has just been released.
Far Cry 6’s cockfighting glorifies cruelty according to PETA
Far Cry 6 allows you to participate in cock fights. Not just to attend, but to actually take part in it like in a fighting game such as Tekken, as the interface of the mini-game evokes. Except that the latter does not please animal rights associations at all. The best known of them, PETA, did not fail to react to the mode that it considers degrading
Turning a horrific bloodthirsty sport like rooster fighting into a Mortal Kombat-style video game match is far from real innovation, as current society is strongly opposed to the idea of forcing animals to fight to the death. Roosters used in fighting are equipped with sharp spurs that tear flesh and bones, causing agonizing and fatal wounds. PETA Latino urges Ubisoft to replace this reprehensible minigame with one that does not glorify cruelty.
Ubisoft has yet to react, but it certainly would have been good to find itself in PETA’s sights. Conversely, Red Dead Redemption II had been praised for its treatment of animals and the enrichment of players’ knowledge.
