Far Cry 4 directors drew inspiration from Nepalese Civil War

It feeds the rich while it buries the poor

Although the upcoming Ubisoft FPS is set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, Far Cry 4's directors conducted extensive research on location in Nepal to both research flora and fauna and to interview those who had fought in the Nepalese Civil War, which lasted over ten years.

The directors explained that after conducting interviews with several Nepalese individuals, some of which had defended their country as child soldiers, they decided to alter the direction of the game. Rather than attempting to catalog a historical war, the game tends towards an extreme, almost darkly comic narrative.

Your character will not be a foreigner trying to complete an objective for some shadowy government, but a native who is returning to his land of Kyrat and rediscovering his home. Although there will be quite a bit of poignant expose, the directors seem to be wanting to above all else keep the game fun and not use it as a political soapbox.
