Far Cry 4 Story Details Leaked

Seems like Reddit has come through for us again.

A pre-order page for Far Cry 4 went up earlier today revealing some big new details about the game’s story that were not in the initial announcement. The page has since been taken down, but you can view the cached version here if you want to see for yourself.

Here are the details straight from the page that reveal the premise behind the story, the villain and main characters name and a few other details.

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.

We’ll get more details on Far Cry 4 at E3, but even from those small details, Far Cry 4’s story is sounding pretty interesting. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news on Far Cry 4 and other upcoming single player titles.

    I got a feeling this is the Far Cry 2 sequel I’ve been waiting! E3 2014 can’t come soon enough! 😀

      That’s sort of what I was thinking to when it mentioned civil war.

  • Hmm

    how long did it take for fary cry 3 to come out?
    now how long will it take for this to arrive?
    I’m no fan of the FC games, but this game seems rushed.

      Well if you look at the quality of Assassin’s Creed games, which are usually pretty quality aside from AC3, it should be fine. They have so many developers working on stuff it makes it possible for them to release games this fast. Been two year since Far Cry 3 released in 2012 as well, so normal amount of time really.

      Two years has become a pretty common timeframe. Though I personally prefer games which take a full three, two years has been proven time and again to be enough for a good dev team to crank out a solid game.

        Ya Naughty Dog busted out Uncharted 2 in only 2 years after Uncharted 1 and it was one of the best and most polished games I’ve seen. 2 years is plenty of time for a good studio. Far Cry 3 had a lot of bugs especially in its multiplayer and could have probably used some extra time or a larger team to polish it up. I hope FC4 learned from some of that.

          Well there is also the matter that FC3 has vastly different gameplay from FC2, so it was a lot more like building a new IP than a sequel. FC4 I would guess is probably going to be quite similar to FC3, which would make its development much easier.

    So I’m guessing from that last sentence they mean multiple endings again like was done with Far Cry 3? not exactly hyped about that part.
