Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon release date, platforms, and details

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is an arcade release from Ubisoft.

It has nothing in common with Far Cry 3, and is a standalone release, which means you won’t need the original game to play this one. It also stars Michael Biehn of Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals fame.

It will be released on May 1st 2013, for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game is a retro version of an open world shooter and has a unique art style. You have to “get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world.”

The official description has been revealed as well.

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.

The pricing of the game hasn’t been revealed yet but considering it’s a standalone copy, we expect it to be a bit on the higher side.
