PETA wants Ubisoft to remove the cruel minigame and compares it to Mortal Kombat
A Ubisoft released on October 6 the title Far Cry 6 for consoles and PC. The new game in the franchise was not well received by the public, receiving grades below expectations generated by the production.
But another reason is generating criticism of the game, the MAP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) , an organization created to fight for the rights of animals, is extremely bothered by the cock fights that are reproduced in Far Cry 6. The company issued a note in repudiation of the mini-game that put cocks fighting each other, in an extremely aggressive and uncomfortable way. Check out the statement from the MAP.
“Turning a bloody horrible sport like cockfighting into a Mortal Kombat-style video game match is far from a real innovation, as today’s society is strongly opposed to forcing animals to fight to the death. cockfights are equipped with sharp spurs that tear through flesh and bone, causing agonizing and fatal wounds. PETA Latino advises Ubisoft to replace this reprehensible minigame with one that doesn’t glorify cruelty.”
