Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon details, May release listed

The first proper details about Ubisoft's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon have surfaced online. According to a new product listing on, the digital game is a standalone shooter set for release on May 1. Serving up a cliché-filled "80’s VHS vision of the future”, it will star Michael Biehn of Terminator and Aliens fame.

Here’s the full product description: “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.”

The Xbox listing also says Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will support online leaderboards. Ubisoft, which has yet to officially announce the game, wouldn’t offer any comment when contacted for details today. Last month, the Brazilian ratings board classified the title for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon screenshots and Achievements have also leaked in recent weeks.

    I guess this makes sense give Far Cry 3 was basically a Rambo sim. Looks like fun.

    Fuck yes! Cannot Wait. Neo-80s makes its return. Wonder if the soundtrack will be true to it's genre.

    you don't need farcry 3 to be able to play this, its a stand alone piece of dlc for some reason. Though I highly recommend getting FC3 cus its amazeballs :D

    Why does this have Far Cry 3 in the title?
  • Child Of Death - April 8, 2013 11:07 a.m.

    I was thinking the same thing but who cares this looks awesome XD
  • Bloodstorm - April 8, 2013 8:11 a.m.

    Wait, it still has dragons? But why must it be so purple! I don't know. I will wait and see. For me, Far Cry 3 was all about stealth in the jungle, random interaction between animal and enemy, and the bow.
