This is Far Cry 4's protagonist, Ajay Ghale

First mug shot of the man whose boots you'll fill in the sequel

Ubisoft has released the first proper shot of Far Cry 4's protagonist, Ajay Ghale.

You will take control of the the Kyrati native in the latest entry in Ubisoft's open-world adventure, although it's antagonist Pagan Min who seems very much to be the star character in the game, with a front-and-center appearance on the game's cover art.

Here's the image of Ghale release by the publisher on Wednesday:


During Sony's pre-E3 press conference, Ubisoft announced an exclusive PS4 and PS3 co-op feature, 'Keys to Kyrat', which allows owners to invite "a few PSN friends to join you in the game, even if they haven't picked it up yet".

Where the co-op in Far Cry 3 was a separate experience from the campaign, Far Cry 4's is drop-in, drop-out, allowing a friend to join you in your game world.

When they do join, all of the solo missions are turned off, leaving the pair of you with all of the open world toys like the outposts, the fortresses and the towers. All progress made as a pair is saved within the main game.

The Far Cry 4 release date is November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe on consoles and PC.
