Far Cry 3 is getting a weird quirky spin off which oddly enough is set in the future, 2007… errr wait a min. Yep, this is how bizarre and ridiculous the title is and with a May 1st release date, I can’t wait. The game will feature the beloved 80′s sci-fi actor Micheal Biehn who is making a comeback via the gaming industry seeing that he was also cast in Aliens: Colonial Marines this year. Don’t worry this stand alone version of Far Cry 3 looks resurrect the actor rather than tarnish his career.
The game features lasers, a cyborg army, the famous Rook Island of Far Cry 3 and heavy metal. While gamers will be pleased to know they don’t need Far Cry 3 to play this retro fitted game. Others may be put off by the bizarre spin-off as our very own Heather Spears was, you can read why here.
The title was originally thought to be an April’s fools joke, however it looks like the joke is on us. The viral Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon website which emerged around April 1st can be seen here. And yes if you do the Konami Code ( ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A ) on the website it will commence a self destruct sequence!
Don’t forget to check out the screens and trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon in all their neon colored glory. The game will be hitting Xbox 360 and PS3 on May 1st.
