Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon sounds like an April Fool’s joke, but the fact that it was listed by the Australian Classification Board confirmed to everyone that this was a real retro spin-off. Now, the first screenshots of the game have leaked online and you can view them in the gallery below!
No official information has been released on the title outside of what was gleaned from the teaser site that went up on April 1st. The story description found there reads:
The year is 2007. It is the future. Earth has been ravaged by a nuclear war and new paths for peace must be found. A U.S. cyborg army may have found a solution: a powerful bio-weapon on a distant island. A Mark IV Cyber Commando, Sergeant Rex Power Colt has been sent over to gather information and figure out what the hell is going on.
There are also two amazing Tron-like music tracks found on the site called Power Core and Sloan’s Assault that you should give a listen. This whole expansion – or whatever we should call it – is truly a Far Cry from the norm of the series (I’m sorry), but everything 80s is cool again. Stay tuned to Capsule Computers for future updates!
