whats this ?
Err.. that was a April Fool's joke.. It's not real. hehehe
an 80's style future fps
It's confirmed real now.
There are now sites claiming it wasn't, including one with various ambient soundtracks. I've yet to see anyone prove one way or the other if it's a joke or real.
By Ubi? If so, prove it and be done with it.
Personally it doesn't make sense to me that Ubi would even consider releasing something like this, but then we ARE talking Ubi.
Thanks for the update guys! Then I want it!
The video appears on Ubisoft's official channel:
And Twitter account:
And they registered a domain name for it:
The domain name points to ubisoft.com name servers:
If it's a fake, it is a very elaborate one orchestrated by Ubisoft. I have yet to see an "April Fools" out of Ubisoft on it.
It's presented as a movie, not a game.
Things that are suspicious:
-There should be corporate filings for "Ubi World Pictures," there isn't.
-"Blood Entertainment" doesn't appear to exist.
-The website is pathetic--not up to Ubisoft's standards.
-The domain name is only registered for a year. If it were a legitimate product, they would have likely bought the domain for 5 or 10 years.
-The domain name was purchased a few days before April 1st.
-Ubi.com doesn't say anything about it--as far as I can tell, the Tweeter account is the only Ubisoft source that mentions it. The Tweet was on April 1st.
93% says it's fake.
We'll have to wait for official word from Ubi on this I think.
If it were legitimate, Ubi World Pictures and Blood Entertainment would exist. It would also be trademarked, but it isn't:
It's not real.
If it's fake it's blown up on them a bit. I'm seeing a lot of people say this looks better than the main game (and I agree) and those people aren't looking at it as a joke... they should capitalize on this crazy 80s shooter idea now that they've made it popular.
I own Far Cry 3...and Far Cry 3 looks SO MUCH better then these week sauce, Halo colored screen shots. All three Far Cry's look better then these screens.
Looks like a pretty good idea for an April Fool's joke. A lot of companies seem to be doing these jokes and then getting a big backlash from their customers because they like/want/expected the product.
Yeah, I think they do it as marketing for an existing product. In this case, that was Far Cry 3.
this is a good strategy. they are putting forth an idea, checking the response.
its like the good ol trick:
guy: ".... lets make out"
guy: "just kidding!"
Brazil? Maybe Rockstar could make it, with Jason being Max Payne's sidekick in Sao Paulo. LOL
2012...they were planning that for a while. Also, it looks like the patent was filed in Canada.
I still don't believe it is actually being made until there's more information on the producers.
360 gets it 1st it seems.
Far Cry® 3 Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place on a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil. Welcome to an 80’s VHS vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando who’s fighting against a cyborg army gone rogue. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world. Experience every cliché of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide. Playing Far Cry® 3 Blood Dragon doesn't require a copy of Far Cry® 3.
Original release date: 5/1/2013
We'll see what happens then.
PC version just got leaked surprisingly a month early.
The theme reminds me of Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters.
Because Serious Sams sales exploded as did Dukes.
Tested it out.
Game is pretty nuts. Tons of neon things, made me dizzy after a while but fun.
Is this real?
Looks like toon land on roger rabbit.
It's an acid trip from what I hear.
