article imagePETA labels Assassin's Creed IV 'disgraceful'

By Sami Zaatari     Mar 6, 2013 in Entertainment
The assassins may have a new and powerful foe to contend with: PETA. The group came after AC4, a popular video game, over the upcoming game's whaling feature, which will allow players to hunt for whales while playing.
PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) was obviously not too thrilled about this and made the following statement:
Whaling—that is, shooting whales with harpoons and leaving them to struggle for an hour or more before they die or are hacked apart while they are still alive—may seem like something out of the history books, but this bloody industry still goes on today in the face of international condemnation, and it’s disgraceful for any game to glorify it. PETA encourages video game companies to create games that celebrate animals—not games that promote hurting and killing them.
Off course one should forget about the fact that Assassins Creed's primary feature is that the game player plays as an Assassin going around killing people, because obviously the main issue is that of killing whales, which is far worse.
Ubisoft, the makers of Assassins Creed, have yet to respond to PETA's scathing attack.
Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag, is set for release this November, whether the whales will still be there, remains to be seen.
