It's official: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a standalone XBLA shooter that allows players to "experience every cliché of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future." Expect every shlocky flourish from every single 80s straight-to-video action movie, even including Michael "Corporal Hicks" Biehn.
"Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place on a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil," explains a new listing on the Xbox Live Marketplace. "Welcome to an 80’s VHS vision of the future."
Set in the far future of 2007, players assume the role of 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," the blurb concludes, while stating that it won't require a copy of Far Cry 3 to play.
