PETA wants pig-slaughtering gameplay added to Farming Simulator 17

PETA UK has petitioned Swiss-based developer GIANTS Software GmbH, asking that Farming Simulator 17 include gameplay of actual pigs being slaughtered.

Farming Simulator 17 should either show the nightmarish reality endured by pigs at the abattoir or change into Vegan Farming Simulator 17 and let players grow crops – to do anything else would be dishonest”, said PETA’s Harriet Barclay.

“We urge anyone who considers pig-slaughter footage too gruesome to include in a simulator game to rid their real-life plates of animal corpses and switch to cruelty-free vegan foods.”

Farming Simulator 17 heads to Windows PC, Mac, Xbox One and PS4 next month — and we’re pretty sure it’s going to be free of this newly suggested content.
