Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Teaser Revealed

Ooh, this is interesting. Ubisoft has released a teaser trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and it looks like a completely nuts spin-off from the GOTY Award-winning original.

“The year is 2007,” says the blurb. “It is the future. Earth has been ravaged by a nuclear war and new paths for peace must be found. A U.S. cyborg army may have found a solution: a powerful bioweapon on a distant island. A Mark IV Cyber Commando, Sergeant Rex Power Colt has been sent over to gather information and figure out what the hell is going on.”

There’s not a lot to go buy in the trailer itself other than an outlining of the game’s retro-futuristic style. Indeed, all we’ve got to go on is that tiny flash of gameplay towards the end, which when captured, slowed down and .giffed looks like this.

And for those that think the game is some kind of April Fools joke, think again. We’ve got the Achievements and there’s an XBLA listing. This is a real, if very weird, thing.

Trailer’s below.

Loved Farcry 3, but this seems a little weird. Could still be fun, the ridiculous premis looks entertaining, but I don't get why it's called Farcry 3 when it clearly has nothing to do with the main game. The only logical reason is that they're just cashing in on the Farcry brandname. O well, we'll see how it turns out.

@3 you mean like how Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3 both had nothing to do with the original game?

Judging by the "official Web Site", I'd say it's an april fools joke, although it did go up saturday and its still lasting today, but that website can't be for something real.

Oh, and if you all knew this and were playing along, sorry....

I hope it isn't a joke. The cover art on the right looks awesome. It looks a bit like a roddy piper 80s action movie, which is certainly not a bad thing.

If this isn't a joke, then what the hell were Ubi smoking?
Also, I think I just found the definition of insanity =P.

@3 From reading some of the stuff on the website, which is totally insane, but the way, it seems that if this is real, it might be a science fictiony retro shooter thing set on a tropical island, because it references that the Blood Dragon 'movie' was set on a tropical island with lots of explosions and dead islanders. That sounds more like FarCry.

Nope guys. This game is entirely fake. Check out the shop on their website. Looks like this is one complex April Fool's joke.

And x360a. Seriously. Stop falling for this. I knew the minute they posted the box art on facebook, on APRIL 1st, that this was bullshit.

Just because it has an xbox listing and achievements doesn't means it's legit.
