Far Cry 3 has appeared on the Xbox Live Marketplace, finally giving us some solid information regarding this rumoured “80’s VHS vision of the future”.
The Marketplace’s listing confirms that Blood Dragon is a standalone expansion, so you won’t need to own Far Cry 3 to play it.
It’s listed for a May 1 release, and supports no multiplayer features beyond leaderboards, suggesting a single-player campaign or challenge mode of some kind.
The official blurb follows:
“Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place on a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil. 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. Playing Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon doesn’t require a copy of Far Cry 3.”
