Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon from Ubisoft is a standalone game (meaning you don’t need Far Cry 3 to play it) releasing May 1, 2013 for the Xbox 360’s Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace which celebrates the old school era of gaming proclaiming the 80’s as king and was announced alongside the launch of a website straight out of the 90’s which you can access here.
The game’s story takes place after the world is spun into nuclear warfare. Comically the year is set to 2007 and we are told that this all takes place in the ‘future’. Hence, the old school themes. The over-the-top personality of this game can be seen being showcased in the following trailer released by Ubisoft. If you originally took this entire announcement and game to be an April Fools joke, we don’t blame you, however it appears this game is indeed real.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon releases May 1, 2013.
