You know….not even once when I was punching a shark in Far Cry 3 did i think, ‘This is fun and all but I really wish this game was set in the ’80s. Oh and that I was a cyber commando. Oh and this all takes place during the second Vietnam War. Then this would be really interesting ‘ Not even once did something like that enter my feeble little brain.
Well, someone at Ubisoft sure as hell was thinking crazy thoughts like that because Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, which was announced on April Fool’s Day, is a real, damn game.
Set to release on May 1 as a stand-alone digital download, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is set in an 1980s style sci-fi vision of the future. Starring Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss) as Sergeant Rex Colt, Blood Dragon is a tale of vengeance filled with neon, dragons, lasers and more neon!
Blood Dragon will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. All PC pre-orders will receive a free copy of the soundtrack by Power Glove.
