Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon: Take an ’80s Acid Trip…to the Future

Besides franchises like Starcraft, we haven’t seen an honest to god stand-alone expansion in a long while.  Everything is labeled DLC or map pack now, tries to flesh out the universe of the original game and most of the time is not worth your 10-20 dollars. Ubisoft has decided to take a different route with a stand-alone expansion for Far Cry 3.

So just what are you watching above? Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is what would happen if Miami Vice, the A-Team and Far Cry 3 had a baby together and that baby was fucking awesome. It even has Michael Biehn (of Terminator fame) voice acting the bad ass hero of the game, Sergeant Rex Colt. Just think Heavy Metal, but in 1080p. The game is available for pre-order on Steam at $14.99 and you don’t need Far Cry 3 to play it. Until May 1, just sit here and watch this trailer on loop.

  1. I’m an impatient fuck so I acquired it early and I can say that whilst it’s absolutely fantastic and 8 hours of pure unadulterated balls out 80s throwback action, it suffers from some of the worst negative mouse acceleration I’ve played since Arma II. I’m playing with a controller because it’s that bad. If that isn’t fixed on release (which it likely won’t be) then we’ll see an absolute outrage from people.

      And Far Cry 3 didn’t have that right? Yeesh, that’s rough.

      • Far Cry 3 had it but it was never a game that needed mad precision of quick reactions. Blood Dragon is much more shooter heavy and therefore it really becomes a massive issue and highlights an otherwise ignored flaw in FC3 unfortunately.
