Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon: A Kick-Ass 80s VHS Vision Of The Future

It has yet to be officially announced but the rumors persist. That's because there's some media out there that doesn't want to be ignored.

For instance, you will find six screenshots and some baseline info for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon over at Xbox.com.

An updated listing shows this mystery FC3 iteration to be a standalone title that will ship next month. In the description, it says- "Playing Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon doesn't require a copy of Far Cry 3." Plus, it appears that April Fool's update was accurate, as we'll be exploring a very 80s-like world with well-known actor Michael Biehn playing the role of protagonist Rex Colt. Blood Dragon is "THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter," the description reads. Further-

"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."

You know, I hate to sound overly, unduly optimistic here, but this sounds like a blast. Yeah, I'm an 80s fan, what of it?

I'm all about this if it's true.

I'd play this jamming out to John Parr's St. Elmo's Fire.

Awesome, love old 80s action. Maybe this will be what Duke Forever wasn't.

sounds really fun!
though, that said, WTF does this have to do with far cry?
sigh, and here i was thinking a game would actually get some DLC thats not MP related!
should of known it was too good to be true.......
oh, and again, a developer creating a totally new IP and slapping a well known famous franchise name on it for the sake of sales.

Due to a mishap on Uplay, several Russian hackers were able to snag a leaked copy of Blood Dragon and are reaping the benefits by posting the game on various torrent sites.

Now, I know pirating is bad, but a game as wacky as BD was too good to resist.... :S The game is freaking fantastic. Absolutely loaded with cheesy 80s dialogue and special effects. All the cutscenes are animated like a 1996 point-and-click adventure game's would be.

It's a true Duke Nukem game that could've been.
