What's a good way to grab people's attention at the start of your press conference? If you're Ubisoft, you ratchet up the crazy right from the outset. That's what the mega-publisher did at its E3 2014 presser with a little snapshot into the insanity of Far Cry 4.

Let's not beat around the bush here: the real star of this intro was Far Cry 4's villain, he of the pink suit and stylish haircut. Not only did we see him scold one of his own minions on the subtleties of the English language before brutally stabbing him to death, he also went on to pose for a smartphone selfie alongside the player character with all that fresh blood splattered on his face. Yep--definitely a villain.

So what do you think? How does this new antagonist stack up against Vaas from Far Cry 3? Take a look at the video and then let us know in the comments!

Wow never saw India highlighted in gaming in this big a way. I mean, there were dialogues in Hindi. And of course the villain looks great - looks like Ubisoft's got the Far Cry series on track with Far Cry 3 and now this. The key being, bad-a** villains !!!

That feel when the locals speak your native tongue, makes the game so much more immersive.

It would be awesome if the player was like his henchman. I'm getting tired of the whole "fight for freedom" thingie. We already have Assassin's Creed for that.

Based off this video alone, who's to say he's actually the villain? Or better worded, who's to say he's the antagonist? Perhaps (probably not) they'll do a multi-protagonist thing. He did say after all, "you and I are going to tear shi+ up".

Maybe its wrong of me to say, but why not have the villain be the protagonist? Playing as the bad guy isn't unheard of, but its rare and makes for a nice spin.

That junk aside, game looks amazing, can't wait to play it.

Ok, I think I have figured it out. They have designed this villain to be hated and it's genius, because that was throwing me off from buying the game. It kind of ruined it for me at first because he looks like such a pusy, but now it makes me want to buy the game solely to kick the crap out of this guy. I mean a pink/purple suit with a Miley haircut, he's just begging to get his a$$ kicked.

At first I would have disagreed and said no way in hell! But you're right! I see it now, he's the perfect villain. HAH

the main villain completely ruins this game for me. the dude in the purple suit looks like he would get his ass handed to him in any fight.. well maybe jar jar would be the only character he could win in a fight with.


honestly hands down the worst character I have ever seen in any video game.

Looks like FC3 with bigger mountains. I wonder if you'll have to climb Budhist shrines to unlock game maps. Seriously Ubi, do something different this time.

and there was all that uproar about this game being racist. the villain is clearly not a white man . add ultra sensitive people and a slow news day together and that's what you get. he acts a little like the joker.

i still prefer Vaas with his awesome 'the definition of insanity' speech but i must admit, the 'stop' and 'shoot' lines and the selfie is awesome. Just hope this one won't end up dead at the middle of the game and get replaced. Btw love the decision to get Troy Baker as the villain.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I do wonder if he's got more good lines waiting for us.. I mean, Vaas' bestie was mid-game but he did have some crazy sh_t before that too. I just hope this line isn't the best we get.

Hopefully the exploration in this game is top notch with many different places to travel. It will probably be one of the better looking titles to come out for a while, so we should see some pretty visuals.
