Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is Coming

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
What was initially thought as a possible April Fool's Day joke is, in fact, a real game.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is coming.

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.
Does this sound a bit over-the-top? If the sudden blast of nostalgic marketing speak has hit you like a bolt of Jolt, you need to see the game's teaser trailer.

Before you go pull out your Zubaz pants, you should venture over to the game's amazing site and feast your eyes on some of these gnarly screenshots.
