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. It’s silly and colourful, it has bad one-liners and honking great dragons who scream lasers, and it’s free. Read the rest of this entry »

Trials Of The Blood Dragon Might Be A Thing?

Supposedly this is Trials of the Blood Dragon?

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 tricky Trials physics-based motorbike stunting but with neon lights. That’s the news. If you want news, no need to read on.

Now let’s gasbag about Turbo Kid and this fake ’80s aesthetic we see so much of.

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 Cry is, it appears, to be named Far Cry Primal and is set during the Ice Age.

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

Awww, I bet he just wants a hug.

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. Now, though, it’s time for a tour of the expandalone’s open world, and the dragons are done tip-toeing about. They are real, they are pissed, and they want cyber hearts for some reason. Watch them frolic, romp, stomp, and shoot helicopters out of the sky using only their eyeballs and their wits after the break.
