ouch Far Cry 4 Racist?


When Ubisoft unveiled Far Cry 4 last week, it probably didn't expect the kind of reception it received.
The game's primary box art has been criticised for perceived racist undertones: that is, that the man on the throne, initially thought to be white, was superior (in racial terms) to the man in front of him.
For a brief insight into the controversy, check out some of the feedback on Twitter.

Ubisoft creative director Alex Hutchinson responded to the backlash, or at least one part of it, by rejecting one of the most commonly incorrect assumptions about the art. "Just so it's clear for those jumping to conclusions: He's not white and that's not the player," he said.

Not much is known about Far Cry 4 at this point, apart from a leaked game description, which said that players will control a character called Ajay Ghale who gets involved with a civil war in the country of Kyrat. The description has since been removed.

It's stupid to label something as racist because of that image.

I think the point of the cover was to establish the setting and the villain. That's what they did for Far Cry 3. This guy just screams 'villain'. An eccentric guy in an expensive suit sitting on a throne made out of the ruins of a significant cultural landmark, surrounded by militia weaponry. Yeah, he's definitely the player.

The goal was to make the evil guy look evil. And hey, he's probably racist too. But I think people were so desensitized to the other aspects of this cover art that all they saw was skin colour for some reason.
