Far Cry 4’s Yuma has terrible hair

2 min read

If there’s one thing I’m starting to realise about Kyrat, the fictional location in which Far Cry 4 is set, it’s that nobody there seems to know how to cut hair. Protagonist Pagan Min has arguably the worst haircut of any modern villain – and his newly revealed right hand not-a-man has an equally silly hairdo. Meet Yuma: Deadly tactician, general of the Royal Army, and Pagan Min’s right-hand woman.

We don’t really know very much about her – though we do know that she possesses ovaries – and that though players might not be able to play as a woman (even in the game’s co-op multiplayer) they’ll end up going head-to-toe with a strong, possibly deranged woman. Like Pagan Min himself, Yuma mixes military garb with 80’s infused neon colours – which brings out their eyes..and their homicidal thirst for blood, probably.

Far Cry 4 came under fire for racism, sexism and homophobia when it was announced – all based on a single image, sending the internet in to a tumult of rage without the slightest hint of context. Now that we know that Pagan Min isn’t a foppish-haired white, flagrantly homosexual overlord subjugating darker-skinned people, much of that rage seems to have subsided.

The game still doesn’t feature female playable characters though, which Ubisoft has passed off as a workload issue.

“It’s really depressing because we were inches away from having you be able to select a girl or a guy as your co-op buddy when you invite someone in,” Far Cry 4 director Alex Hutchinson confessed to Polygon.

“And it was purely a workload issue because we don’t have a female reading for the character, we don’t have all the animations, and so it was this weird issue where you could have a female model that walked and talked and jumped like a dude,” he added.

But at least, with the issue being brought up all the time, it’s something that will soon be going away.

“I can guarantee you that in the future, moving forward, this sort of stuff will go away,” he said.

Which of course, will open up the air for people to whine and moan about other things.

    I must say, I’m liking Far Cry 4 the more I read / see of it. Really think it’ll be a great, fun game – much like it’s predecessor. Yes, there’s no Vaas… But this new ‘baddie’ seems like he could be a different / interesting type of crazy.

      Me too. But the use of Uplay haunts PC gamers though.

        I can report I’ve not had a single problem with uPlay the last few weeks that I’ve been playing AC games. It downloaded a tiny update on Saturday morning, that’s it.

          I installed it yesterday after a year of being Uplay free
          Nothing broke. No smoke. No fire.
          But it’s only been one day though, so it’s too early to tell.

            Could it be that… Uplay is better?!?!?!!
            I’m sure the servers will still crash come week 1 though.

            I’m curious to see how The Crew is going to work on that. Not that I’m going to buy anything through Uplay, but I’ll check the reviews.

            He didn’t need it, he was just a mud-farming peasant. Stop making her out to be some kind of monster.

    “we know that Pagan Min isn’t a foppish-haired white, flagrantly homosexual overlord subjugating darker-skinned people” actually liked that. Racist Cape Town club manager turned evil dictator.

    Sad that we reached the point that evil bad guys need to be political correct.

      And where all people who wear purple is automatically gay?
      It’s actually a joke, to be honest. Next thing they’ll say bad guys aren’t allowed to be African even if the game is set in Africa. Oh wait, they’ve already done that, haven’t they?
