Far Cry 4 alternate ending allows it to be “beaten” in under 15 minutes

For those unfamiliar with the game’s premise, Its single-player campaign puts gamers in the shoes of Ajay Ghale, an English-speaking Nepalese native who returns to Kyrat, a fictional, yet wild region within the Himalayas to scatter his mother’s ashes in honor of her dying wishes. In the game’s actual, full-length story, Ajay gets caught up in a civil war upon arrival as the Kyrat natives struggle under the oppressive regime of self-appointed king, Pagan Min.

On to the real meat of the matter, in the game’s alternate ending, once Ajay is taken into the hands of Pagan Min, he is taken to a room, in which Min tells him to stay and “enjoy the crab rangoon.”

This is where the alternate ending can be accessed:

If the player decides to stay put in the room, instead of leaving the premises, for approximately 13 minutes, Pagan Min comes back into the room. After that, Min takes him to the place where Ajay is to place his mother’s urn of ashes.

Min proceeds to tell Ghale the history of his mother in Kyrat, which reveals some interesting discoveries. After some short exposition, Ghale is directed to enter the building where he is to place his mother’s ashes next to those of another deceased relative.

Upon exit of the building, Pagan Min says something along the lines of, “Oh good! You feel better now? Get it out of your system? Maybe now, we can shoot some goddamn guns,” as The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go’s” introductory riff plays in the background. Min and Ghale enter Min’s helicopter as the game’s ending credits roll.

That’s it. Legitimately.

The insiders, proved reliable for other early revelations such as the name of Halo 5: Guardians and some information about the new IP for PS4 of Guerrilla Games , has not said if it is a new title in the series or a remake of the first chapter, but we know that the next Gears will come in 2016 so it is very likely a remaster for Xbox One of the first game in the series, along the lines of the Anniversary editions of Halo.

Of course, for now there is nothing sure, then I invite you to take this information with due caution.... But i Can't wait....
