Far Cry 3‘s standalone DLC, Blood Dragon, is set to hit Xbox Live, PSN, and PC on May 1st, and it sure looks “80s-tastic” – but in a good way that certainly has me interested enough to spend all my money on it.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon won’t require the actual Far Cry 3 disc to play, and, based on its Xbox.com listing, it plays on multiple 80s action flick clichés and stars Michael Biehn from The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, and Navy Seals.
“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 collide. Playing Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon doesn’t require a copy of Far Cry 3.”
