"mother's dying wish," when we get caught up in a civil war to overthrow a dictator.
This piece of information was leaked by Ubisoft when they updated Uplay, and the game's director confirms the pink suited guy on the cover is not the player character.
Most likely he's the dictator Pagan Min, the guy we'll be overthrowing. Pre-ordering Far Cry 4 gets you the Limited Edition which includes three single-player missions.
"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," blurbed the Uplay store page. A is still available.
"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."
Game director Alex Hutchinson "Just so it's clear for those jumping to conclusions: He's not white and that's not the player." Far Cry 4 releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4 later this year.:
