Far Cry 4 Secret Ending: Is the Secret Outcome Worth the Wait?

Far Cry 4‘s secret ending is legendary in gaming, giving fans a completely different ending and a chance to finish the game in 15 minutes. Is the ending fun? No, but it is worth trying. The game has you spend time traversing the fictional country of Kyrat, a fictional country similar to Nepal and Bhutan. Let’s first discuss the basis of the game. The game follows in the footsteps of its predecessors by building a vibrant and dangerous world. You have multiple options to change the environment around you or alter the game with your decisions since it’s open-world. Players can choose which path to take and which objective to start. It’s a fantastic experience with a thrilling antagonist. The game rewards exploration, and players will revel in their decisions.

Far Cry 4 Premise

Far Cry 4 is an open-world first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft. It was released in 2014 as the fourth main installment in the Far Cry series. The game revolves around Ajay Ghale, the protagonist who returns to Kyrat to fulfill his mother’s dying wish. She wanted him to spread her ashes there. Upon arrival, Ghale encounters Pagan Min, the game’s antagonist and ruling dictator. That’s how the secret ending begins, right when the game starts. If you play the game in a typical fashion, Ajay becomes entangled in a civil war. Players navigate the beautiful yet dangerous landscapes of Kyrat and must make choices that will impact the nation’s fate and its people. The game features a vast open world filled with wildlife, various environments, and various weapons and vehicles for players.

In true Far Cry fashion, the game is chaotically beautiful.

Far Cry 4 Secret Ending Explained

As mentioned above, after the game’s intro, you’ll be left alone by Min to enjoy a meal. The game takes an unnatural time for him to return, so most players go, prompting them to start the game. But what if you stay? What if you’re patient? If you wait a full 15 minutes, Min will return.

Turns out, he’s not such a bad person and allows you to spread your mother’s ashes where she requested, which turns out to be next to her daughter. And surprise, that’s Min’s daughter as well. This is all information you find out eventually anyway if you don’t stay for 15 minutes, but now you can join his side.

Sadly, you don’t play the whole game on his side, the game just ends, but it does imply you’re starting a very different story.

Every Far Cry 4 Ending

While the ending mentioned above is considered the secret ending, the game doesn’t stop there. Far Cry 4 has four possible endings. So first and foremost, if you wait for him to return at the dinner table, you’ll receive the secret ending.

At the end of the game, you’ll meet Pagan again, and you can choose to kill him immediately, ending the game. He’ll take you on the helicopter ride if you don’t shoot him, showing you where to scatter your mother’s ashes. After, he’ll fly away, and you can either shoot him or not. If you let him fly away, the game ends. If you attack his helicopter down, the game will create a crash site and allow you to loot his dead body and the wreckage.

Far Cry 4 Secret Achievements

The game has an excellent selection of secret achievements for playing the game. Every achievement on this list must be completed for those who want to complete everything involved in the game. Some of these will require multiple playthroughs, as you can only join one or two of the sides in any given campaign. If you play on PlayStation, most of these achievements are trophies for Sony so that the gameplay will be the same. There are a few differences, but for the most part, the challenges are similar.
