And just like that, Pagan Min has arrived. But after his undeniably chilling introduction to the world, we can’t help wondering: Who exactly is this disarmingly charming psychopath? Or, perhaps a better question: Is the villain of Far Cry 4 actually crazy at all? And is he even a villain, for that matter?

We still have much to learn about Pagan Min ahead of Far Cry 4’s worldwide release on November 18, but we were able to pry free some intriguing insights into the charismatic character. Before we reveal a bit more about the man behind the pink suits and bleached hair, check out this video in which Far Cry 4’s main character, Ajay Ghale, meets Min upon his return to Kyrat, the country of his birth.

Far Cry 4 will feature cooperative multiplayer, Ubisoft announced during Sony's E3 press conference today.

The demo highlighted the game's drop in/drop out multiplayer when a second player hopped into the game at a random moment. The gameplay demo on stage also showcased new features such as a wingsuit and a grapple hook, as well as a tense, mountain-side jeep chase.

The open world of Kyrat is an incredible place. Behind the beauty of its mountain peaks and lush valleys, the splendour of its flora and fauna, a civil war is raging. Far Cry 4 puts you in the middle of the fight, in a nation where one false step is as likely to land you in an enemy outpost as in the jaws of a hungry tiger.

Far Cry 4 features drop-in/drop-out “Guns for Hire” Co-Op, meaning that you and a friend can take on the wilds of Kyrat as a pair, exploring the world, taking down enemies and generally making everything as precise or as chaotic as you choose. Both players get experience, both players get in-game cash, and both players have an awesome time.

Better yet, play the game on PS3 or PS4 and you’ll get a set of “Keys to Kyrat”. The keys open up Kyrat’s borders to any of your PSN friends, inviting them into your open world even if they don’t yet have a copy of the game. Capture outposts together, traverse Kyrat and make gains with anybody you know–or everybody you know. It’s a Playstation Exclusive and it means there are no limits to your Far Cry 4 experience.

Far Cry 4 arrives November 18th, 2014 on Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.
