Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 has been lauded for its immensely beautiful open world gameplay. The storyline, on the other hand, hasn’t held up nearly as well under criticism. A lackluster plot seems almost improbable considering the alternate endings that gamers have discovered thus far (and potentially others that haven’t yet been uncovered).
Last week, gamers that had early access to Far Cry 4 found an alternate ending at the very beginning of the game in which players can complete the game in roughly 15 minutes. Now, a second alternate ending has emerged following a series of cryptic tweets from Ubisoft Creative Director Alex Hutchinson.
This new “super secret alternate ending” requires players to make a snap decision that creates a whole new mini-location in the game.
At the end of the game after taking Pagan Min’s compound, you can let him fly away in a helicopter. Or if you have a rocket or grenade launcher, you can blast him out of the sky. The latter option will need to be followed to get to the secret area.
Once the credits roll, you can hop back into the game and enter Min’s fortress. Follow the path up the hill and you’ll eventually come across the downed chopper and Min’s dead body ripe for the looting. On his body is the golden pen from the beginning of the game and a lapel pin that’s worth a lot of money.
