Far Cry 4 won’t be out until November, but we already know more about the story than we expected to–and more than we’re supposed to, for that matter. A preorder page appeared on Uplay earlier today, and it included a short blurb about the story. The page has since been taken down, but you can check out the cached version here.
“Far CryÃ‚Â® 4 delivers an unparalleled next-gen experience in an entirely new and massive open world.
“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.
“Explore and navigate this vast open world, where danger and unpredictability lurk around every corner. Here, every decision counts, and every second is a story. Welcome to Kyrat.”
The cover art for Far Cry 4 stirred up a good deal of controversy when it was revealed, but our bet is that the guy in pink is Pagan Min. Thanks to a post by the game’s Creative Director, we can say for sure he’s not the protagonist.
Just so it's clear for those jumping to conclusions: He's not white and that's not the player. http://t.co/zvqe3uzZI6

One concern that’s kept the controversy alive is that even if the guy on the cover is a villain, maybe his reign of oppression can only be stopped by a white hero. Well, since the protagonist’s name is Ajay Ghale, our guess is that he’s Indian.
Regardless of who these people are, it sounds as though they’ll have an interesting story. What do you think?
