Ubisoft released a new trailer for Far Cry: New Dawn featuring the two lead baddies from the post-apocalyptic sequel to last year’s Far Cry 5. The trailer features Mickey and Lou heading into a bar and getting into a shootout with the mostly white, male patrons all while the song “It’s Raining Men” blares in the background.
After Mickey and Lou go into the bar and request drinks, they’re approached by a burly white male who makes a snide remark.
The duo then retort that they killed their father, and then proceed to beat up the burly white male. You can check out the trailer below.
Alternatively, if you’re unable to view the trailer due to the region restriction, there’s a re-upload of the live-action spot that you can watch below, thanks to BitChute.
As a remix of “It’s Raining Men” begins to play, we get a montage of the two women killing everyone inside the bar.
The live-action trailer ends with the two villains gunning down a main with a mini-gun.
Typically, the trailer was only up for a short while after it was published February 5th, 2019 on Ubisoft’s YouTube channel before the comments were disabled and the regions were restricted.
It’s not hard to imagine what the feedback must have been like for the trailer, since most times the comment sections are disabled on trailers with lots of downvotes in order to censor negative discussion.
Ubisoft obviously didn’t want people saying mean things about the two female villains. However, if they didn’t want to endure the criticism maybe they shouldn’t have prominently featured them in the trailer or included them in the game?
Even if these two are the bad guys, and players will have to hunt down these seemingly radical Social Justice Warriors, many gamers fear that Ubisoft may turn the tables once more and prevent players from killing the duo.
Given that Ubisoft has been constantly trying to placate and apologize to SJWs, it’s unclear what their true motivation is with Far Cry: New Dawn. It’s almost like there’s some sort of internal, civil strife taking place within the company as certain people fight for the soul of Ubisoft’s creative direction.
