More news has graced the internet about the standalone game, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. My most favorite bit of news is that it will be featuring Michael Biehn, who is known for his roles of Dwayne Hicks (Aliens) and Kyle Reese (Terminator). This guy is the epitome of 80s, action and having him take a role in Blood Dragon is fitting, considering the game is going for an 80s feel to the entire experience.
Some details have also dropped regarding the release date, and some other delicious tid-bits via its page over the Xbox Live Marketplace [Click Here]. The blurb of information essentially states this:
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.
That information makes it sound super stellar anyway. I can’t wait to see more about it, especially since the game has a release date of May 1st, 2013. So, that’s less than a month away.
