Far Cry 6’s narrative director Navid Khavari shares his thoughts on the politics of the game and how the development team approached its sensitive topics from the very beginning.
What's amazing is that this game's recent trailer had politics in it (e.g. the reasons people become guerilla fighters) and nobody cared. But now people will suddenly get offended and cause a fuss when they've already seen this stuff. If you weren't offended last week, no need to get offended this week, lads.
I think people are expecting too much of a Ubisoft game if they think it will offer anything intelligent or provocative regarding politics…. They are basic action games with thin plots and characters. This trailer was super boring I almost fell asleep watching it.
Ubisoft makes great games and even though far cry 4 and 5 were just ok to me. The fact remains that the entire ubisoft catalog consists of great games. I think your not giving credit to ubisoft but hey your opinion. I hope this new far cry can be as good as 3 but if not its plenty if other titles to play.
Ubisoft has some good gameplay but I never remember their stories.
Yes immediate knee jerk reactions are better
Nah people only bring up the "I don't want politics in my games" excuse when it's politics that don't sync with their personal views. Otherwise they wouldn't be gamers seeing as majority of modern games have political themes.
What happen to the easily triggered and I don't want politics in my games group of people?
This time it is políticos they like.
No shit... it’s a revolution lol. Although that word has been severely dumbed down these days. People think burning down a Burger King is revolution now. People think they know what revolution is like but they don’t and they won’t after playing this game either despite what Kotaku says. I don’t take far cry and it’s homemade backpack missiles as serious political commentary but I do enjoy them. I will be taking it to the commies on day one.
Who cares. Might be political but its a Ubisoft game. They only dip their toes into the political side of things.
Ubisoft's political discourse in writing has usually been pretty skewed, if not marginally tone-deaf. Nothing really ever profound or thought provoking.
It being "political" won't change the fact that it'll probably play the same as every other repetitive Ubisoft game. It'll probably have the same lame "humor" too.
Which "fascist" island are they parodying? Cuba?
There's a difference between being political and pushing agendas. Think most have already come to this understanding. It's only really a problem when you start to push your politics as being the moraly correct to believe in
There's no difference at all. It's just "pushing an agenda" when it's a hair different from your thinking. Repeating status quo is even more political than being a revolutionary.
There will be no difference with the new leadership once the revolution is done. It’s all been done before, humanity doesn’t change. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. There is no difference between fascism and communism, socialism and capitalism, the old guard and the new powers. It’s liberty vs everything else and liberty requires constant revolution on all fronts. Humanity is lazy though and that’s why it reaches the boiling point in most cases.
Doesn't bother me. From the gameplay shown in the recent trailer I'm buying it when it's released,I enjoyed FC5 & FC:ND.
Every far cry game is political. I mean is that really a little know secret ? Lol
political game?, nah the only thing I see with FC6 is the guy of los pollos hermanos going nuts again :D
It's going to be a live service SP game...
As long as you’re not driving some woke bullshit down my throat then I’m cool with the political aspect l.
Who cares? Stop trying to make stories out of nothing man. Its a video game, not a real world election.
They said that about the last one and it was........not what they were insinuating.
