Ubisoft has revealed that Assassin’s Quest III exploits Black teens for their “punchyness” and “naughty/nice” characteristics.
The company’s statement follows a report in Eurogamer which claimed to have uncovered a number of exploits in the Assassin’s series, including “piercing” and other exploitable glitches that were patched in Assassin’s Origins.
“The latest exploits from Assassin’s Pride can be found in the latest game in the series, Assassin’s Edge,” Ubisoft said.
“This game has also been released with an extensive patching suite, including the ability to change the way characters behave.
The game’s patching features also include the ability for players to change their skin tone, and even the ability of players to turn their own face into a mask, as seen in a number, if not most, of the Assassin characters.
The full patch is now available in Assassin 2, but we encourage players to play through the game for as long as they want.”
The company said it was “working to make our game easier for our fans” and would “continue to actively protect our users’ privacy.”
“Our goal is to make Assassin’s story as engaging and enjoyable as possible, and our commitment to this goal is as clear as we can be,” it added.
“We’re constantly working to improve our tools and make Assassin no longer feel as raw and raw as ever.”
The Assassin’s Curse, which Ubisoft released in 2015, also featured black teens in the spotlight.
