Did you play and love Far Cry 3? Well, there’s more coming, but it’s not exactly what you might expect.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a standalone download-only expansion to Far Cry 3 that takes place in a warped 80s version of the future. As Sergeant Rex Power, players will experience a brand new game filled with neon, robots, and dinosaurs that is about as tied to the Far Cry universe as velociraptors are tied to apples. Even in the first 15 minutes of the game shown in the video above, it’s clear that this is kind of a joke product, but a very awesome one filled with movie references and gags that pop culture aficionados should have a field day with.
THIS is how you do an expansion to your game, developers. People want to play more of your great game, but give them something different. Something like Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare and the spoofy DLC for Sleeping Dogs. Something that keeps the same comfortable feel of the base experience while turning it on its head in a new way. It’s great for them, and they have less reason to feel like it was just content trimmed from the original game.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is available April 30th on PC and Playstation Network, and May 1st on Xbox Live Arcade
