Something interesting happened on the internet this week. Ubisoft quelled speculation about Far Cry 4 story details, but when they unintentionally leaked details themselves, they acted quickly to seal the gap.
So, the company had been receiving a lot of flak for the initial promotional image. Many interpreted it to be depicting a white man as the fabled self-made king on the cover, and that he is the playable character. Ubisoft’s Alex Hutchinson sent out this tweet as a response.
Just so it's clear for those jumping to conclusions: He's not white and that's not the player. http://t.co/zvqe3uzZI6

And then, this introductory text came up on Ubisoft’s own Uplay page, where they were accepting preorders:
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.
They removed that now, but not before fans got a chance to record it. You can see the evidence here.
