Good on them adding two black females in the cover, it's refreshing, but over all it looks trash talking about the design don't really like their pose the weapon their holding and overall the color

At this point Far Cry's motto seems to be to try and create controversy to market the game. Its worked thus far as they've handled it well.

Don't the villains usually get the cover spot, not the protags?
There have been six Far Cry games with the protagonist on the cover. There have been three Far Cry games with the antagonist on the cover. It's just that those three got way more attention than the other six.

There is something about recent Far Cries and how they present themselves that annoys me to no end. In this case all the stupid drawings on the couch and the car, the car itself functioning as a cross, the garish colors... everything looks so fucking tacky and every character looks extremely punchable.

At least these two ladies, whatever their role in the game, are a big improvement over those white, bearded hipster men from FC5. (I don't know if they were hipsters, probably not, but they sure looked like it.)

I would love to hear your reasoning for why you believe this cover to be racist.
The cover is obviously created to cause controversy, so it is inherently racist. I thought we were already past these kinds of publicity stunts, but I guess not...

Gaming industry needs to grow up.

This is going to be an online game like Fallout 76.

Call it a feeling.

Unless everything about it has leaked and I've already been proven wrong.

I agree the industry needs to grow up, but even if the cover was designed to generate controversy (which I disagree with), that doesn't make it inherently racist.

If it was two white girls with a black guy chained up, would that be more or less racist?

Where X marks the spot.
Racist cover, ugh. Don't like it at all. You should know better, Ubisoft.
lol what?

Oh. I see. Someone else who fell down and bumped their head.

I hope the villains didnt take their inspiration from heath ledgers joker like they did in far cry 5. By that I mean “im edgy and evil but I have a message”

I don't understand how this cross bow/buzz saw thing with a motorcycle handle works, hopefully they have a long demonstration prepared about how it works, how it was made, and its place within the world of cross bows and buzz saws

Jesus they really are copying Rage 2 hard with this. I feel bad for id/avalanche because this will probably overshadow it even though Rage 2 will likely be the far better game.
