Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon teaser site is only part prank

What the hell, Ubisoft. You put up this ridiculous teaser website for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon on April Fool's Day, so everybody who just looks at the headline and teaser video below will think we got duped.

"The year is 2007. It is the future," the website taunts, each syllable humming like a neon No Smoking sign. "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."

But we haven't been duped! Or if we have, the '80s sci-fi action movie riffing parody is one of the most elaborate gaming pranks we've seen, since ratings, art, and achievements for the presumed downloadable content leaked throughout March.

We don't know if Blood Dragon will add on to Far Cry 3 or if it will stand alone. But given this subliminal-speed footage in the trailer, Jason "Turns Out Killing Pirates is Pretty Fun You Guys" Brody can't hold a candle to Sergeant Rex Power Colt.

    If you go to the shop and click on "The game for your home entertainment system" it opens a picture with what looks like achievements. One is killing a dragon with a bow.

    This is pretty funny, always nice when developers show a sense of humor. My guess is that it leaves you on the same island but reskins everything and adds loads of new random stuff kind of like undead nightmare but to a much greater extreme

    Try the Konami Code on the site.

    "Most elaborate gaming pranks we've seen"... uh what about the entirety of the MGS5 announcement guys? Anyway I like all the original Tron-esque neon.

    I love the fact that the website teases it as a movie XD
