SAN FRANCISCO, CA. – April 30th, 2013 [FleshEatingZipper] – Today, Ubisoft announces that the Retro Futuristic Cyber Shooter Far Cry 3® Blood Dragon is now available for digital download on consoles and PC for $14.99. The soundtrack by Power Glove will be available on iTunes on May 1st for $9.99.
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. You are 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 1980s 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, released as a stand-alone digital title.
“Out of the ashes of Far Cry 3, a few chosen devs came together to define a retro vision of the future. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is an all-out, balls-to-the-wall cyber shooter that doesn’t take itself too seriously. In a genre saturated with super-serious narrative and realistic settings we felt it was time to inject some good old-fashioned robofun into the mix,” said Dean Evans, Creative Director.
The release of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is also the occasion for Ubisoft to team-up for a special partnership with AMD. “AMD’s strong relationship with Ubisoft brings together top current titles in PC gaming with the most advanced graphics technology available on the market today,” said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit, AMD. “For epic action games like ‘Far Cry® 3 Blood Dragon’, only AMD Radeon™ graphics can deliver rich and immersive gaming quality and performance.”
