This is the game you have wanted for years, but didn’t know you want. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is a stand-alone spinoff of the Far Cry series that looks to capture some nostalgia from the ’80s. The brainchild of the Ubisoft Montreal team, they have created a downloadable, kinetic ball of ’80s insanity that uses the Far Cry‘s mechanics to deliver it. This will be riffed with tons of references starting right from the get go. They have even done the cut scenes in 8-bit love, and neon is not used sparingly throughout.
The main character, Sergeant Rex Colt: Mark IV Cyber Commando, a cybernetic super solider is voiced by Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens). In the year 2007 the Earth has been ravaged by nuclear war that took place in the ’90s. The story goes on to be something ripped straight from a ’80s action movie. So check out the trailer for the game below. It is definitely NSFW, and for mature audiences only. So you have been warned.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will be available for download on April 30th, 2013 for PlayStation 3 and May 1st for Xbox 360. You can read more about the game here.
