The Bolivian government has expressed dissatisfaction with the way its country is portrayed in Ubisoft's upcoming open world shooter, Ghost Recon Wildlands.

In Wildlands, a Mexican drug cartel controls Bolivia and has turned it into a violent, anarchic narco-state.

As reported by Reuters, the Bolivian government has filed a formal complaint with the French embassy. It seems the Bolivians aren't particularly happy that their country is portrayed as a cartel-run hellhole.

The Bolivian government also suggested it was willing to take matters further.

"We have the standing to do it (take legal action), but at first we prefer to go the route of diplomatic negotiation," Bolivia Interior Minister Carlos Romero told reporters.

Ubisoft told Reuters that the game is "a work of fiction" and that Bolivia was chosen as the background for the game for its "magnificent landscapes and rich culture".

"While the game's premise imagines a different reality than the one that exists in Bolivia today, we do hope that the in-game world comes close to representing the country's beautiful topography," Ubisoft said.

According to Ubisoft, the beta of Wildlands was downloaded by 6.8 million users.
