Ubisoft Will Break My Heart If Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Isn’t A Real GameBy: Zach Walton - April 1, 2013
Far Cry 3 is an absolutely amazing game. I can’t really think of anything that could improve the experience beyond an injection of 80s awesomeness.
In what’s either a cruel April Fools’ joke, or the most amazing thing to ever happen in video games – Ubisoft today announced a “movie” called Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Here’s the amazing synopsis:
The year is 2007. 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.
A previous report from Kotaku indicates that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon may indeed be an expansion, an entirely new game, based on the Far Cry 3 universe. One indication we have that this may be more than a joke is that it’s been officially rated by the Australian Classification Board as R 18+ for having a “high impact sex scene.” Another sliver of hope is an achievement list for the game that features such feats as “Dragon Slayer” and “The Drug of the Nation.”
There’s still no word on whether or not this is real, but there’s hope that Ubisoft isn’t just pulling our collective legs on this one. I think I would cry if this turned out to be nothing more than a joke.
