"Far Cry 6" has a mini-game about "Cockfighting", and it is both illegal in the game and real life, but the good thing is that everything that happens there is digital and in the game only. Note that this does not violate any real-world laws, and the open-world game is focusing on having it available for "Recroosters" only, which are one of the trophies in-game.
The game from Ubisoft is a massive one and was most awaited since last year, especially as the latest consoles from gaming companies bring new features for 4K and better graphics. "Far Cry" has been a game that has featured mind-boggling graphics, as well as gameplay that highly immerses a player in the world.
'Far Cry 6' Cockfighting and the Recrooster
"Far Cry 6" is an unbelievable game for its reviews and gamers, especially the fans of the franchise that focused on the plot and the introduction of the new villain of the title. It features Giancarlo Esposito, who is the known baddie in "Breaking Bad," where he plays Gustavo Fring, or the head of the Mexican cartel in America.
But the cockfighting mini-game, which gamers cannot get over with because of its entertaining gameplay and a breath of fresh air. It is not a homage, as Gustavo Fring owns a fried chicken chain restaurant called "Los Pollos Hermanos."
However, cockfighting in "Far Cry 6" is a look at the method of entertainment in a poor country, and in this case, "Yara," where it is a tradition by the locals.
Moreover, users are advised to collect "Recrooster" trophies throughout the game, and it would give them a special mod of the rooster, which has different designs and looks. These chickens would not be worthless displays only, as they can fight against one another.
PS5 Trophies said that there are 19 roosters to collect, but only 13 are required unless users are subscribed to Ubisoft's Connect.

Users can either toggle this by going around different "barrios", which have cockfighting arenas or stadiums. Moreover, it can be seen on the Main Menu of the game once unlocked.
The addition of cockfights to the game is a phenomenon in the game, as it brings a new mini-game that was not thought of before, even on Mexican-themed titles. Even more so, it is a game where users can play as the rooster to fight against other roosters.
The game is somehow three-dimensional but has basic attacks such as pecks, kicks, and takedowns. Also, gamers can dodge an attack using the eight directions with the joystick. Additionally, there is a meter that fills up to inflict a rooster's "Special Attack" that takes a chunk of health from the opponent or gamer.
Is 'Far Cry 6' Worth Buying?
"Far Cry 6" has mixed reviews now, but it is leaning more into the praises, as the game delivers on the fresh take on the open-world, which aims to bring a "close to reality" plot. However, if you are over the "defeating the dictator" gameplay and conspiracies, maybe this is not for you.
It remains a game that is enjoyable and lets a user go around the open world to the different missions and aspects of the game, making it a worthy title to play this 2021.
