Far Cry 4 Cover Character Is Not The Player And He’s Not White
Ubisoft quells some doubtful controversy with a quick tweet.
Ubisoft’s Alex Hutchinson has ended some speculation regarding Far Cry 4 following rampant speculation on the initial promotional image. With one fell swoop, he refutes that the man in the pink suit is white, or that he is the playable character.
Just so it's clear for those jumping to conclusions: He's not white and that's not the player. http://t.co/zvqe3uzZI6

It must be said that fans should have known better if they thought about it and checked back. The game’s predecessor, Far Cry 3, had Vaas Montenegro on the cover, so it would not have been out of the question for the new game to be the same.
In any case, this is definitely one of those cases where what wasn’t clear before becomes obvious when you take a closer look. The white character’s facial features suggest he may not be white. We don’t want to go too deeply into speculation at this point, but we had pointed out before the diversity of peoples in the game’s setting, so who knows what origins he has?
I am willing to stake on this: our cover character is most definitely the main villain. It may also be safe to say that Far Cry 4 will be placing the player in another set of difficult, extenuating circumstances that will lead them to doing things they normally would not do. Expect to get your moral code rocked to its core when Far Cry 4 releases this November on Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
