That is proper. In 2021, we're now being shamed by fictional online game characters. We did not thoughts when Mr. Resetti would scold us for not saving in Animal Crossing: Wild World – it was warranted. However these emails are a ridiculous ploy by Ubisoft at finest and a predatory apply at worst.
Opinion: No, I do not need to be guilt-tripped into gaming
I've spent quite a lot of hours working across the island of Yara, blowing up outposts, parachuting off cliff faces, and using horses. However the very last thing I want in as we speak's world is to be emailed by a online game writer, goading me to return to a sport that I ended taking part in. Whereas Ubisoft would possibly suppose that contacting gamers as Castillo might be innocent and a intelligent advertising and marketing ploy that breaks the fourth wall considerably, nobody desires undesirable emails clogging up their inbox or made to really feel dangerous in any method. And in the end, these Far Cry 6 emails goal to perform one factor and one factor solely: persuade gamers who gave up on the sport to return. Hopefully, Ubisoft will encourage more gamers to revisit Far Cry 6, make just a few in-game purchases, and stay entrenched in Ubisoft's world. Urgh. Absolutely you are able to do higher than this, Ubisoft?
Far Cry 6 is obtainable now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC, and Stadia. Oh, and you'll play it for as little or so long as you need to, no strain from us.
