Ubisoft’s tongue-in-cheek retro flavoured first-person shooter (FPS), Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, is now available to download for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC via the Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and various digital services respectively. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a standalone release and does not require Far Cry 3 to play.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon casts the player as Sergeant Rex Power Colt, played by Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss), a Mark IV Cyber Commando on a mission… of vengeance. There’s only one force powerful enough to stop an army of rampaging killer cyborgs, mutated scientists, metal sharks and vicious Blood Dragons that shoot lasers from their eyes, and that force is you. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is as ridiculous as it sounds, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a rarity in the modern videogames industry: a piece of interactive entertainment that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, including an in-depth review coming later today.
