Ubisoft leaks first story details for Far Cry 4, protagonist probably isn't a white guy

You can decide how big of a grain of salt you want to take this phrase with, but Ubisoft "accidentally leaked" the first story details for Far Cry 4 by "inadvertently" putting a page for the game on the company's store. But, the Internet sees all, and of course, some keen eye caught it.

Here's the description, as Ubisoft tells it:

Hidden in the majestic Himalayas lies Kyrat, a country steeped in tradition and violence. You are Ajay Ghale. Travelling 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.

Ubisoft didn't outwardly state it, but the protagonist's name makes it sound as if he'll be Indian or Nepali. Also, the game's creative director tweeted that whoever's featured on the cover art isn't the player and isn't white, despite looking incredibly white. Even though this is shrouded in mystery at the moment, I'm sure it won't be long before everything's cleared up.

I like Far Cry 4's map editor because it leads to goat butt stabbing videos

Imagine a scenario where goats take over and rule supreme. Not good-natured, frolic in the meadow, eat your leafy spruge goats. No, purely evil, human-devouring, straight-up refuse to eat your leafy spurge goats. Pretty...more

Far Cry 4's alternate ending only takes a half hour to access

Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ...more

Review: Far Cry 4

Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012. It didn't stray too far from the normal sandbox conventions set before it, but gallivanting around beautiful island vistas and flying about with wingsuits was pretty damn fun. For some that wasn't enough, though, and for those folks, Far Cry 4 won't be enough either. But for me, it's still pretty damn fun.more

Far Cry 4 has more naked boobs but also a lil dick!

Ubisoft: Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon 2 isn't happening

Don't expect a Blood Dragon spin-off for Far Cry 4, says Ubisoft producer Alex Hutchinson. "No. The answer is no, you won't get another one of those," Hutchinson told IGN Australia. "But hopefully we'll be able to come up with something that surprises you just as much." Pubcast Happy Hour 10: Far Cry 4 Special [IGN via Game Informer]more
