“Sweet. If that is the plot I can find out who make FarCry game and NEVER FUCKING BUY ONE OF THEIR GAMES AGAIN,” one user wrote.“Making the white people look evil. Getting fucking sick of this shit. You want us to become evil. We sure as fuck will,” wrote another.
I’m Boycotting Far Cry 5. I own 3,4 and Primal and enjoy them, but won’t be buying this one. https://t.co/zKblYUxO9k
