same with the lion imagery on the flag/cops. not very communist. I'm sure in practice it'll just be a bland nonspecific authoritarian bad guy. But strangely/interestingly the protest imagery used looks more like recent Yellow Vest and BLM protests than LatAm. That actor i forget his name, is more closely associated with the figure of Obama than any other leader in recent history, maybe Duterte but he's not eloquent like this guy is being presented. Its a kind of Brazillian Obama who comes to power in a military coup to remove the weak Bolsanaro.

tbf considering the role cia played in far cry 3 and 4, this is not necessarily what will happen. going by past storylines there will be a cia guy in there sowing chaos between both sides with hardly any pretense, trying to use the main character for own ends, causing trouble for the main character then eventually giving some help only after he got his pound of flesh. this version is "only" going to give the cia way more credit than they deserve for being shit stirrers, but the "non idealist realist shitbag" cia agent is the go-to trope in this day and age

Why can't you people think critically? CIA has HUGE influence over both video games and film, they literally writes some of the COD scripts. A bunch of liberals got together and thought of overthrowing a south american dictator in their next game, do you honestly think they care about the right wing dictators and not the current backlash against Maduro and the like? People who are liberal have a 0.0001% chance of being genuinely sympathetic to socialism. It's either going to be centrist rubbish about how the revolutionaries are corrupt and the government corrupt oh well may as well kill myself because i can't change anything lolz!

>Production of Far Cry 6 had been ongoing for four years at the time of its July 2020 announcement, with Ubisoft Toronto the lead studio for the game.[4] Narrative director Navid Khavari said that they started researching on revolutions of the past, they came across the idea of the modern guerrilla revolution such as the Cuban Revolution, which gave them numerous ideas of how to drive the player-character into fighting against a repressive government. This also brought back the need to give the player-character, Dani Rojas, a voice, compared to recent Far Cry games in which the protagonist had been silent. Khavari said "it was essential for us to ensure that the protagonist has a personal investment in that revolution".[5] Using Cuba as an influence also established the return to a tropical setting, a feature of the earlier Far Cry games, as well as giving the setting a "timeless" look due to economic blockades that had been imposed on the island, mixing vintage cars with modern weapons.[6] Khavari spent a month in Cuba and speaking to residents there to help develop the setting.

or worse: they can but corporate censorship is all over this shit so that they can make a game with a veneer of politics without actually saying anything that could be construed as political. see far cry 5 and the cult militia which ultimately believed in absolutely nothing and employed cartoon levels of violence so as not to possibly offend anybody nor let anybody try to empathise. the end result was that everybody projected onto them what they didn't like: for the rightoids it was isis or rajneeshis, for us it was mad christian fundies.

Well, tried the BOLIVARIAN WAY socialism but appeasing the gringos.
It worked for a while, stability in the army, agrarian reform for the poor, better wageslave conditions, and only the lady from mothers of the dissapeared died before the rupture of the army.

But IN THE EEEEEEEND NOTHING REALLY MATHERS

When I agreed to do free liberal elections and played by the book (even sending the army to protect socialliberals from the based faction supporters) they didn't recognized it because some oligarch said "EBIL CGOMMIES" and looks like the republican on top saw a hawkish oportunity, so it's Venezuela in 2013 again

Basically I turned a blind eye to rightoid military for a while, during the time arming the people militias. Eventually they started a border guerrilla war, which wasn't too nice. However, I did manage to suck off US's dick internationally, even getting nice gibs, all while instituting basically a NEP type system in the country, perhaps even more left than that, while also building up the military and creating the local peoples councils. Oh, and also I joined the NAM and despite my socialist economic policies the IMF seems happy to still help.

I think there's quite a bit of dice rolling in there, but you need to arm the peasants and beat the military in their coup attempt, as well as buddy up with the Soviets whenever possible. It's been a long time since I did it so I can't remember much more.
It's not a 100% good ending because I ended up with a lot of IMF debt (don't know if you can avoid this), but it was very based.

I think I should elaborate. After turn 5 or 6, half of the time you speak with an encounter person the game will softlock by greying out all option apart from "help" tutorial one. I thought I could avoid it by not talking to them, but randomly they will approach you themselves, like the trade union fucker who is like an over attached GF that has to ask every turn weather your revolutionary government that just sued US to the world court is still pro-union rights.

In that case we could see what the "golden" ending would be if it didn't softlock.
