Far Cry 4 Story & Protagonist Details Unintentionally Revealed
Story details for Far Cry 4 were posted online by Ubisoft before swiftly being removed.
Published on May 20, 2014
Following on from Far Cry 4's recent announcement, story details have been published online.
The Far Cry 4 story details, published on Uplay and since removed, read as follows:
"Hidden in the majestic Himalayas lies Kyrat, a country steeped in tradition and violence.
"You are Ajay Ghale. Traveling to Kyrat to fulfill your mother's dying wish, you find yourself caught up in a civil war to overthrow the oppressive regime of dictator Pagan Min."
'Ghale' is an indigenous Nepalese group, suggesting that the player will play a Nepalese character in Far Cry 4.
Perhaps 'Ajay Ghale' is even intended as a reference to Gaje Ghale, a Nepalese Gurkha and recipient of the Victoria Cross.
This could mean that the Nepalese Gurkha that appeared in the art released with Far Cry 4's reveal is the main character.
Presumably, Pagan Min is the name of the figure sat atop his ad-hoc throne in the same artwork.
