Kevin Jones writes "Ajay Ghale returns to his Mother’s home to take her ashes to the temple of Lakshmana. He’s intercepted by Pagan Min the insane ruler of Kyrat minutes after he arrives. Pagan intends to keep Ajay locked away with him in his fortress, but the Golden Path frees Ajay before he becomes a victim to Pagan’s madness. Ajay learns that the Golden Path was once lead by his father, and that the Golden Path has had a leadership problem since his death. Ajay must help the Golden Path take over the territory from Pagan Min so that he can reach Lakshmana."
