How do all of these huge developers get away with these months long campaigns for games that turn out to be April Fool's Day jokes? For example, introducing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon -- the movie, Ubisoft's trip to the future that's really the past or is it? "The Year is 2007, it is the future, " is the movie's tagline, but the official website and teaser trailer look like it's from the 80s. I thought this was supposed to be DLC! I don't know what to believe anymore!
Here's a quick summary of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon's story, according to the website prior to it making my eyes melt:
"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."
As with Deus Ex: Human Defiance, we've been talking about Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for quite some time now and it's difficult to determine whether or not we've been truly trolled. Is this just a precursor to a true Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon DLC announcement or is this it? Not that it isn't great, it's just... a new sort of April Fool's joke I'm still uncomfortable with.
Far Cry 3 is currently available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Blood Dragon is only in our imagination and the alternate reality that is... April Fool's Day.
