Far Cry 4 story details accidentally unearthed
Ubisoft accidentally released some details about Far Cry 4 in a post on Uplay. They quickly pulled this post down, but a screencap was taken and released onto the internet anyway:
The text in question states the following:
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.
Another version of the post is cached here.
In other news, Alex Hutchinson revealed on Twitter that the blonde man in the image is "not white" and also "not the player." Does that mean it is the villain, Pagan Min?
The post also reveals that players who pre-order the game will receive the Limited Edition, which includes Hurk’s Redemption, a series of three single-player missions featuring Hurk from Far Cry 3's DLC. It also includes "The Impaler"--the Hurk's signature harpoon gun.
Far Cry 4 launches on November 18 in the US, November 20 in Europe and November 21 in the UK. It will be available for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
