Ubisoft unveils Far Cry 4 protagonist

Meet Ajay Ghale, aka, the player.

In Far Cry 4, the upcoming open world shooter from Ubisoft, you play Ajay Ghale.

Ghale is a native of Kyrat, the fictional Himalayan region in which Far Cry 4 is set. It is ruled by a despotic self appointed king Pagan Min.

In a Tweet Ubisoft described Ghale as a "devoted son", and "Pagan Min's guest of honour".

Min was unveiled at E3 last week with a video, below, showcasing Far Cry 4's opening five minutes.

Ghale arrives in Kyrat tucked into the back of a packed bus. Things quickly get nervy at a checkpoint - and go south from there.
