Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Unveils Coolest April Fool’s Website Ever

on April 1, 2013 1:17 PM

So Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has finally been unveiled for the hoax that it truly is: and in one of the most awesome ways ever, with a neon-covered website that bills Blood Dragon as a movie in development instead of the previously perceived game sequel or expansion we all thought it was.

The Story:

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.

According to Kotaku, one of their readers has also found that the Konami code works on the site. Similar to the Anonymous controversy a few months ago where you could play Asteroids on hacked government websites, doing Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A turns your cursor into a crosshair that lets you destroy images on the page.

Far Cry 3 - Or Is It RealSome commentors have also found a screenshot (which you can see below along with the trailer) which may indicate the game could be real, and only masked as an April Fool’s prank (perhaps, as ludicrous as it sounds, as part of their marketing campaign). I wouldn’t mind pointing out there’s a tiny picture that says “Or is it real?” which could point to such a conclusion.

Tell us what you think below and enjoy the Blood Dragon website here. Also check out the cool 80s soundtrack by Daawatcha found on the site (Sloan’s Assault and Power) and the Shop, where you can buy an “anti-atomic Mexican hat” and a steak.
