Far Cry 4 executive producer Dan Hay explains villain Pagan Min and protagonist Ajay Ghale's ties to Kyrat in a new video interview from E3.
Min has ruled the fictional Himalayan country for two decades when Far Cry 4 begins, Hay explains, and being the unquestioned ruler for such a long time has encouraged a few eccentricities.
Hay revealed in the interview that the autocrat doesn't just wear that distinctive hot pink suit for the fashion statement:
"Pagan Min wears that suit as an homage to his mom. So when you're making fun of the suit, you're making fun of his mom. And I would not make fun of Pagan Min's mom."
Ghale's family ties him to the region as well, where his surname will be recognized by many of the characters he encounters. How the Ghale and Min families interacted before Far Cry 4 remains to be seen.
The Far Cry 4 release date is November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
