Pew! Get Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Free For Keepsies

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon [official site], Ubisoft's wacky '80s parody FPS, is free this month. Trot off this-a-way and you can get it for keepsies through Uplay. Blood Dragon is a smaller spin-off from the sandbox FPS series, with all the trappings of What Is Broadly Accepted By Modern Pop Culture To Be What All Eighties Movies Were Like Even Though They, Y'Know, Weren't.…

Trials Of The Blood Dragon Might Be A Thing?

Eagle-eyed database watchers have spotted traces of an Ubisoft game named Trials of the Blood Dragon listed by the Taiwanese software rating board. The listings have been pulled, but did reveal a logo and single screenshot which seemed to show, yep, a Trials game with the neon lighting of Far Cry 3's expandalone Blood Dragon. That's it. If it's real and happening, I'd expect more…

Far Cry Primal Info: Release Date, Screenshots, Trailers

Ubisoft attempted to announce Far Cry Primal [official site] with a tantalising livestream, which was rather spoiled by a brief leak of the game's name and basic details. Now we know more, including proper trailers, screenshots, and a release date... which will see the game land on PC the month after it'll arrive on console.

Far Cry Primal Trailer: Fight Mammoths With Spears

Update: There's now proper trailers and everything, embedded below, or hop to this post for Far Cry Primal's release date, screenshots, trailers and more. Viral marketing isn't entirely going Ubisoft's way lately, but at least having their own promotional rug for the next Far Cry pulled from under them by a loose-lipped IGN Turkey means exciting news rather than quizzical looks. Yep, the next Far…

Cyberpink – Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon Likely… In Some Form

So Far Cry 4 is a thing. It was pretty inevitable, given that Far Cry 3 sold like hotcakes stuffed with pornography. The next question, then, is obvious: will there be another Far Cry: Blood Dragon? Nothing's set in stone yet, but it sounds quite likely that Far Cry will take another turn for the weird. Just maybe don't expect another '80s spoof this time.

Eight Lasery, Lizardy Mins Of Blood Dragon’s Open World

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, wherefore art thou Blood Dragon? Well - and this is just a hunch - I'm gonna go ahead and say it's because of all the blood dragons. Thing is, our peeks at the neon-drowned shurikensplosion of a game have thus far been confined by story, (somewhat oddly) removing said retro-future laser reptiles from the spotlight.…

Please Watch This Dumb Blood Dragon Live-Action Short

And by "dumb," I mean wonderful. Maybe even brilliant, in the sense that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon seems on track to be a neon-emblazoned clown who secretly conceals both a high-powered laser rifle and an Ivy League college degree. That also fires lasers. The bits we've been shown lovingly satirize everything - '80s action flicks, shooters, modern games, old games - with a surgically…

Feature: The Farcrythreening

Hands On: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is stupid. It has a terrible story, one-dimensional characters, and there's no emotional value in playing it whatsoever. I can't even criticise it for all those things, because that's everything Ubisoft wants the game to be. They think they've found a loophole in any criticism by deliberately aiming low. Hah! The joke's on them! Blood Dragon is pretty good.

Far-Fetched Cry: A Half Hour Of Blood Dragon Footage

Edit - bah, videos removed. If anyone's found another source please say so below. Edit2 - A new source for one of the vids is now in this post, but presumably it won't hang around for long. This half hour of purported footage from Far Cry 3 expandalone Blood Dragon is obviously fake. You can tell by the way the shader polarity is reversed at…

Has Biehn: Far Cry 3 – Blood Dragon Out May 1st

I still can't quite believe that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon exists but as of this weekend, the standalone title not only has a release date, it also has Michael Biehn's voice. Actually, the Xbox Marketplace listing which reveals the May 1st release date doesn't specify 'voice', it says 'a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn…

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Is Totally Bonkers, An Actual Thing

On April 1st, a peculiar thing happened: a game company debuted a seemingly implausible spin-off that wasn't a gigantic, painfully obvious hoax. Now, notice I said "hoax," not "joke." Reason being, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon still seems incredibly, absurdly silly. The advantage it has over its smoke-and-mirrors peers, however, is that it's actually, you know, real. What began with a schlocky (though impressively elaborate) '80s-style…
