Ubisoft released a CGI TV commercial for their upcoming open world first-person shooter, Far Cry 4.
The single-player story follows Ajay Ghale, an English-speaking Nepalese native who returns to Kyrat, a wild and untamed region of the Himalayas to scatter his mother’s ashes. Once there, he becomes caught up in a civil war as the people struggle under the despotic regime of self-appointed king Pagan Min (Troy Baker), ruling under an oppressive monarchy. Far Cry 4 marks the first time in the Far Cry series that the main characters are natives to the country in which the game takes place.
“Hidden in the towering Himalayas lies Kyrat, a mountainous paradise steeped in tradition and violence…You are Ajay Ghale, a young man returning to the country of your birth in the Himalayas to fulfill your mother’s final wish.
She had fled from civil war in Kyrat 25 years ago and has asked you to return to scatter her ashes. What she hasn’t told you is that your family, the Ghales, founded a rebellion that is struggling, fighting a war against a despotic, self-appointed King, Pagan Min.
As you explore and discover more about Kyrat, you will become involved in the Rebellion and The Golden Path, following your parents’ footsteps.
The rebels are willing and able but their leadership is divided and, through your actions, you will begin to make choices which will steer the Golden Path towards the liberation of Kyrat, one way or another…”
Far Cry 4 will release on November 18 in North America and November 20, 2014 in Europe for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
