Wow. So like everyone else, I have been following this constantly evolving outflow of information as it has leaked in regard to the first batch of DLC content in support of FarCry 3, and like everyone else, I have been pretty shocked at what we have all seen. Surely it was a prolonged, April Fools Day joke, right? I guess not, as it looks like FarCry 3: Blood Dragon is legit, and I’m 100% OK with it. There is nothing FarCry 3 about the game, as it is a totally what Day Z is to Arma II: essentially a mod turned into a different game. That’s pretty cool, though, right? I think so.
The game is going for an 80′s action-cartoon vibe and as a child of the 80′s, I can confirm that this has been a massive success. Having literally nothing to do with FarCry 3, Blood Dragon will star Michael Biehn as the voice of Sgt. Rex Power Colt. The trailer below is perfect, and I am officially stoked for this game. I see why they leached onto the FarCry 3 name given how successful it has been, but I do kind of wish they called it something else. In any event, the game is releasing May 1st on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Steam and looks like it will be $15. Get stoked, because this is going to be awesome.
