Ubisoft has revealed the first official gameplay of their upcoming standalone title, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, complete with a very awesome '80s-styled cartoon. Earlier this week the title was accidentally leaked to the public a month before release after a Russian website gained access to the entire uPlay catalogue, Ubisoft's digital service shop. Various gameplay videos were posted to YouTube however a majority have since been taken down.
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.
The retro title will not only see giant lizard's firing lasers from their eyes, but also see the addition of Michael Biehn, known for his roles in Terminator, Aliens and Navy Seals.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is now available for pre-order on Steam for PC (thanks TuffNuT) with a release date of May 2 and price of $17.95 USD. The pre-order is also offering the enigmatic soundtrack for those who jump in early, which offers the soothing sounds of Power Glove, a Melbourne-based band. A recent slip up at Xbox.com had listed the title with a May 1st release date, however it is currently unknown what the console release dates are.
