Ubisoft managed to troll a bunch of people with the cover of Far Cry: New Dawn, which is the spin-off sequel to Far Cry 5. It picks up some 17 years after the events of the original Far Cry 5 ending – and they’re going with the ending where Joseph Seed was proven correct and it turned out that he was actually a prophet who predicted that the apocalypse was about to take place.
The trailer for Far Cry: New Dawn reveals that two evil black chicks known as The Twins lead a neon Antifa group to tear down the remnants of human civilization by taking, stealing, destroying, and subjugating people to their sadistic whims. It’s up to players to put down these pink-clothed punks.
You can check out the trailer below.
The trailer reveals that much like Antifa, the Twins don’t believe in a capitalistic society and want everyone subject to their brand of authoritarianism. Sounds familiar, eh?
The initial box art reveal had a lot of people on the brink of being triggered because no one wanted to play as woke Antifa SJWs. But thankfully some people were wise to Ubisoft’s machinations.
[remembers the last time everyone got excited for woke far cry based off the first piece of concept art] did i ever tell you about the definition of insanity

Hilariously enough, game journalists were previously praising the “woke” cover featuring the two black females torturing a poor (presumably) straight, white male. Remember these were also the same people who complained about Conservatives being portrayed as good guys in Far Cry 5 and that Ubisoft needed to get “more political” with its games.
However, their tune quickly changed when it was discovered that players would be the ones hunting down these woke warriors and setting the world back into a realm of peace and prosperity while also restoring balance to the land.
There’s a tweet capturing some of the butthurt from journalists who were disappointed to find out that the player would be putting an end to the carnage being administered by the woke warrior twins.
Journalists are now crying cuz of who the villains are in Far Cry. They claim to want inclusivity in games yet seem to only want white men as the villains in them. Hm. Weird
Also, have they forgotten that the series now has a character creator? You can play as whoever you want pic.twitter.com/91QTTSNpKm

The meltdown from the NPCs that dominate game journalism was already predicted by people who have caught on to Ubisoft’s marketing tricks.
i love how the overwoke motherfuckers so far seem to be all “This Is Making Those Gamers Mad” like they’re not gonna have a gargantuan collective internet meltdown when these two ladies turn out to be THE VILLAINS of this game pic.twitter.com/YJQPTHvYz9
