Trivia / Far Cry 4

Go To

  • Ascended Meme: Some soldiers exclaim "Honey badger don't give a shit!" during the critters' attacks.
  • Dawson Casting: In the game, Amita is supposed to be 25, and Sabal, 36. They were voiced, respectively, by 33-year old Janina Gavankar and 45-year old Naveen Andrews.
  • Dueling Works: On consoles, this game competed with the next-gen versions of Grand Theft Auto V, both of them being open-world games released on the exact same day. On other platforms this was averted, the PS3/360 versions of GTAV predating FC4 by over a year and its PC port coming out five months afterward.
  • Fake Nationality: Troy Baker, a white American, voices Pagan Min, a half British Hong Kong Chinese criminal turned despotic warlord. Also qualifies in-series, since he's also voicing Pagan's body double Eric, who's from Melbourne, so he's American pretending to be Fake Australian, pretending to be a Fake Brit.
    • Fake Brit: Yogi and Reggie, and by extension, their voice actors, Chad Krowchuk and Bryce Hodgson qualify. Chad and Bryce are both Canadians.
    • Naveen Andrews as Sabal. Although he's approximately the right ethnicity (born to Indian parents), he's an Englishman. And he's Not Even Bothering with the Accent, in contrast to Indian-American Janina Gavankar as Amita.
    • Anglo-Canadian James A. Woods as Kyrati-American Ajay Ghale.
    • American Emerson Brooks as Longinus, a priest from a fictional African country.
    • Mylene Dinh-Robinc, a Canadian of Vietnamese heritage, as Dr. Najjar Noore, a Kyrati woman of presumably Arabic descent, as her name indicates.
  • Image Source: For Glorious Leader.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Russian and South American settings for the game were considered before Ubisoft went with the Himalayas. Longinus hints at this after completing the last of his missions, suggesting South America as a possible next stop when asked where he'll go now that his work in Kyrat is done.
    • Advertisement:
    • Really early into pre-production, Ubisoft considered making Far Cry 4 a direct sequel to Far Cry 3, following Jason Brody (Far Cry 3's protagonist) ending up in another island setting. This idea was scrapped early on for feeling too much like a complete rehash of Far Cry 3.

How well does it match the trope?
