WARNING SPOILERS! WARNING SPOILERS!
The facts in this video have been confirmed as the super secret ending!
Greetings Far Cry fans, Ian Higton here and I need your help in finding Far Cry 4’s super secret alternate ending. Alex Hutchinson, creative director on Far Cry 4 has been teasing this as yet undiscovered ending and i’ve been trying to uncover it. I have a theory on what it might be, but I’m not that confident that i’ve got it cracked.
Before I go any further though, here’s a quick spoiler warning, as this video is going to be full of them. Spoilers!
OK So it all started when Alex wrote on Twitter “But they didn't find the super secret alternate ending that requires you to make a snap decision and creates a whole new mini-location…”
And then “ Big change as yet undiscovered right at the end”
Right then, let’s go kill Pagan Min. You can do this after you place your mothers ashes next to that of your half sister Lakshmana. If you’ve already watched the secret ending in the prologue, you’ll have already discovered that it was Mohan Ghale who killed one year old Lakshmana when he found out about Pagan and his wife Ishawaris affair. It was this event that caused Pagan to become the madman he is now - as he explains in his own words here:
So after that bombshell, Pagan flies off, but you get a few seconds chance to down his chopper as he makes his getaway. Do that and the game ends. Well done, the king is dead. Long live you.
After the credits jump back into the game and you can immediately head back to Pagans Fortress. Blow a hole in this door here, leg it up the hill and near the top you’ll come across the downed chopper and a very pristine Pagan corpse just ripe for the looting. In his jacket you’ll find his golden pen - the one he used to stab that dude with right at the start of the game, and a lapel pin netting you a cool 250,000 kyrati royals.
And that’s about all you can do with the body, you can’t burn it and you can’t carry it, so there’s no laying it to rest alongside his lover and his daughter. So what mini location has this unlocked then?
This is where I need your help - I don’t have time to play the game all over again to check, but if you keep heading up the hill you can re enter Pagan’s palace and revisit the tomb of Ishwari and Lakshmana - now I only noticed this on the way back through, but inside the palace on a wall is a letter from Ajays Mother sent directly to her Lover Pagan Min.
I wish I had time to say goodbye She says, but if I don’t leave him now, I don’t know what he will do. He is out of control, I can’t leave Ajay with him and I can;t stay in Kyrat. It’s not just Mohan, I don’t want Ajay growing up in this place, it has a way of bringing out the worst in people.
Know that I love you and one day we will be together again.
So, could this be the mini location you can return to? Is reading this letter the final ‘nice touch’ that Alex refers to? It might be - it sure wraps everything up nicely and tells you that you were basically barking up the wrong tree for the whole of the game. Mohan drove Pagan mad and the real enemies of Ishwari turned out to be the golden path - the people who Ajay chose to side with. Ishwaris real wish was for Ajay to scatter her ashes nest to Lakshmana and get to know Pagan - perhaps she wasn’t aware that the loss of his daughter and his lover, and his thirst for revenge against the Golden Path driven him stir crazy.
