Meet Far Cry 4’s protagonist: Ajay Ghale

Ubisoft today released the first images of Far Cry 4’s protagonist over on the game’s official Facebook page.

We’ll be playing as Ajay Ghale, a “Kyrat native, devoted son, and Pagan Min’s guest of honor,” as we make our way through the game’s Himalayan setting. Pagan Min, the game’s loony and controversy-loaded antagonist, was revealed with the game’s announcement art and saw heavy limelight in the game’s E3 trailer.

Interestingly, Ajay was shown in Ubisoft’s E3 presentation as well, but looked quite different from the art revealed today. It’s not quite as radical a jump as changing ethnicities, but Ajay certainly looks more like a mountain native than he did in the trailer’s selfie shot. 

It's not ridiculous to guess that a different character was shown entirely, but there are enough similarities to suggest it's just a matter of character evolution, Ajay's jacket sitting at the top of the list. 

Far Cry 4 wil release for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC November 18.
