Ubisoft are pumped to announce that their standalone retro-futurist, cyber-shooter Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is now available for digital download on PC for $17.95, Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 (1200 Microsoft Points), PlayStation Network for $21.95 and retail PC for $19.95. Our review went up this morning. Here’s an official description:
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon lets players get the girl, kill the bad guys and save the world in a VHS-era vision of the future! As Sergeant Rex Colt, you are “part man, part machine, all American”; a state-of-the art Mark IV cyber-commando on a mission…of vengeance. You’re out to bring down your old commanding officer and his battalion of ruthless killer cyborgs and you’ll stop at nothing to get the job done. Hollywood action icon Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss), returns in this explosive 80s style sci-fi vision of a dark future. Turn off your VCR, plug in your video game cabinet, and get ready to experience all of the thrills of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.
The soundtrack by Power Glove (whom I could not say enough good things about in our above-linked review) is available on iTunes for $16.99 and is also offered with the PC retail version releasing on May 2nd. Check out the launch trailer – “Robo-Balls to the Wall” – below.
