The Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon wiki last edited by TychoX on 08/09/13 05:02PM View full history

Overview

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a sci-fi first person shooter developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft on April 30, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 (via PlayStation Network), and on May 1, 2013 for both the Xbox 360 (via Xbox Live Arcade) and PC (via Steam). Although it is considered a standalone expansion to 2012's Far Cry 3 (and shares much of the original's gameplay mechanics), Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon features a new, unique setting inspired by sci-fi action movies of the 1980s.

Set in a retro-futuristic dystopian 2007, players are put into the role of Sgt. Rex "Power" Colt, a Mark-IV cyber-commando (with the voice and likeness of Michael Biehn, famous as Sgt. Kyle Reese of The Terminator and Cpl. Dwayne Hicks of Aliens) in a "near future" North America ravaged by nuclear war (in which "the apocalypse has had an apocalypse"), as he is sent on a mission (along with fellow cyber-soldier Spider) to an undisclosed island to fight an enemy cyborg army (known as Omega Force) and track down a rogue agent (his former commander, Colonel Sloan).

The game's soundtrack (reminiscent of 80s electronic music) was composed by the Australian electronic music duo Power Glove.
