The official product listing and game description appeared on the Xbox Live Marketplace official website stating that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is due to release this May 1st and will be a completely separate title, meaning it’s got nothing to do with the actual Far Cry 3.
“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.”
Yes, it sounds bonkers, but we fully expect it be a proper rampaging riot of fun. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon sounds like an up-scaled Retro City Rampage and it’s bound to be full of nods to pop-culture as well as providing some wicked-cool cyber gameplay.
