Upcoming standalone add-on/spin-off to last year’s Far Cry 3 may be released on May 1, 2013–just 3 short weeks away–and will feature the voice talent of 80s movie star Michael Biehn. The game was announced officially earlier this month with a VHS-styled teaser that hints at all of the wonderful 80s-ness of this game. The synopsis that was pulled from the Xbox website (which has since been removed) is equally awesome:
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.
Someone also dumped glorious 80s awesomeness all over the box art, as well:
I’m more than a little excited about this upcoming retro-inspired open-world experience, so I’ll be sure to post more when new information is available.
