Thirty years after Saddam Hussein starved them of water, Iraq’s southern marshes, which straddle the famous Tigris and Euphrates rivers, are blossoming once more.
The early trailers for Far Cry 5 had some people nervously wondering if the game was going to be about shooting white Republicans.
Now that the game is out, though, it seems those fears were unfounded.
Far Cry is a series known for dropping you into an exotic land full of hostile natives that you are required to shoot in order to survive. But when it was revealed that the bad guys in Far Cry 5 would be mostly white guys from middle America, some people seemed uncomfortable.
But as it turns out, the game is less politics and more of a mish-mash of cult imagery – the game’s Eden’s Gate cult sounds like the actual Heaven’s Gate, and the echoes of Waco, Texas ring a lot louder than the perhaps coincidental similarities to the Oregon standoff of 2016.
But Far Cry 5 Creative Director Dan Hay isn’t denying that America’s current political climate has had some influence on his game.
“I get asked, is it about America, is it about a certain administration?” he says. “The answer is that it takes from all of that stuff. It definitely feels like we’re very close to the edge right now.”
VICE News went to Ubisoft’s headquarters to find out what it means to make a game about the end of the world, when that vision is starting to look a bit more realistic.

Czech bass prodigy Computerartist never fails to impress me. I’d like to think that I’ve developed a pretty good ear for quality DnB music through years of constant listening and critique, and it doesn’t take much out of me to say that Computerartist deserves a throne of his own in this scene. The atmosphere is always on point, and the bass lines are consistently legendary in their design and groove. “Eden” is a perfect example of what I’m talking about with that last sentence, and it’s important to mention that this is a much older Computerartist track. The newer stuff in his catalogue is even more impressive; God only knows what the future holds for him. From “Cold Fusion EP” (2012) on Disturbed.
Weapons Grade is a channel for uploading only the most forward thinking and stomping underground Neurofunk. I will try my best to promote only the truly under-appreciated tunes that go lesser heard. Uploads will probably be daily, or possibly even more frequently. Every track featured here has been purchased from the respective label, and is in 320 kbps (MP3) quality before upload. All artwork in every video is from http://www.wallhaven.cc/ unless otherwise stated! I won’t feature any track on this channel that isn’t advanced Neurofunk and I will never monetize a video. This channel is purely for your entertainment and discovery, and for my hobby. I hope you guys enjoy thoroughly!
If there is a problem with any of the tracks uploaded, please consult at me at my email (found on my channel under “For business enquiries”). I will take necessary measures to make content owners satisfied with the state of their track, whether it be on the channel or not. If you wish to submit a track for possible upload, please send it to me via the same email.
Release infos soon !
