Ubisoft announced yesterday that it will roll out some worldwide changes to the game’s visuals to remove violence, gambling, blood, and sexual themes. While the studio says the progressions won’t influence gameplay, the thinking behind this change is the game’s venture into Asian areas, such as China.Many fans are as yet not glad.
Everything began with the most recent developer update and its clarification of the ongoing revamp, “We want to explain why these changes are coming to the global version of the game, as opposed to branching and maintaining two parallel builds.”
They included, “By maintaining a single build, we are able to reduce the duplication of work on the development side. This will allow us to be more agile as a development team, and address issues more quickly.
“Having the same people working on a singular global version of the game ensures we only need to do the work once. In addition, we can guarantee that any future changes are aligned with the global regulations we are working towards.”
The studio guaranteed players that the gameplay side of things will stay flawless, with just the visual perspectives being changed.
For example, the knife melee kill icon will be changed over to a fist, with skulls in both the UI and maps being replaced with alternate symbols. On the other hand, gambling machines and environmental blood splatters are being completely removed.
Obviously, the declaration hasn’t run down well with the community, with many irate posts being profoundly upvoted on the official Rainbow Six Siege subreddit, calling the progressions control. A particular date has not been reported for when these progressions will be actualized at this time.
