Screenshots reportedly from unannounced Far Cry 3 spin-off.

Screenshots and the soundtrack of the rumoured Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon have hit the Internet.

Four screenshots reporting to be from the game were found on Xbox.com (images via NeoGAF), showing saturated colours, an 80s sci-fi aesthetic, and a vintage scanlines effect.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is rumoured to be a standalone spin-off of last year's open-world FPS Far Cry 3.

Austrailian artist Power Glove has also uploaded three tracks with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon artwork to music sharing site Soundcloud. The synth-heavy electronic tracks are titled Power Core, Sloan's Assault, and Warzone

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has been teased numerous times, first appearing as a listing in the Brazilian classification ratings group at the start of March. Ubisoft showed a teaser site for the game on April 1, too.

"The year is 2007. It is the future. Earth has been ravaged by a nuclear war and new paths for peace must be found. A U.S. cyborg army may have found a solution: a powerful bioweapon on a distant island. A Mark IV Cyber Commando, Sergeant Rex Power Colt has been sent over to gather information and figure out what the hell is going on," reads Ubisoft's site for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Ubisoft declined to comment when approached by GameSpot.

Damn, as an older gamer, this really looks awesome.
Too bad the bit of searching i did, i came to a conclusion that this is a very nice looking game that has been just dressed over cod.

Now please do correct me if im wrong but what i've understood, is that this game is full of 80's, 90's things (awesome imo) but with modern BAD game mechanics such as ironsights, health regen, cutscenes/qte's...

It is very shame if this turns out to be true, since this pretty much looks kinda like Hard Reset V2 :D which would just be pretty fucking awesome.
But ofcourse in this world, an awesome game would not make enough sells. Fuck!

Far cry 3 was awesome but I dunno about this, I'm not a fan of the cartoony comic book look of the screens, I thought that shit was an april fools prank anyway, they're still releasing info/screens of it?

Far Cry 3 was great. I still need to finish it on harder difficulty. I will buy any DLC as game is simply amazing.

As long as they keep the same open world gameplay as Far Cry 3 this will be an awesome game. I love the campy 80's sci-fi theme.

a new Far Cry is always welcome. One of the few shooter franchises nowadays that's not just about turkey-shooting

This colorful whorish bastardization looks absolutely fucking crazy and risky. I like that.

i have a dumb question; Far Cry 3 is set somewhere in south east asia isn't it? Because in some scenes, they were speaking Bahasa Indonesia and/or Melayu; then having The Rakyat as their people, Rakyat means "people" in Melayu and Bahasa. Some of the beaches/reefs were taken or inspired by Bali, Lombok, and other Islands alike; got me all riled up and confused, culturally speaking.

this reminds me on the game that came out year or two ago, the PC exclusive one, you shoot robots ... cant remember the name

Looks interesting, but why does it need to be an add-on for Far Cry 3? Seems like it doesn't have much connection to the base game.

I wanted to get into far cry 3, it was so beautifully designed, but it had no depth.

Still have it though, it's pretty fun still.


Plus:  "It's 2007, in the future..."

I did love Farcry 3 but after I finished the game I realized how unsubstantial it really is. It didn't took me long before I sold it.

@Voice_of_Wisdom You should try Lost Planet 1&2. They are suprisingly fun and sophisticated to play on higher difficulties.

@Spartan_418 The article says it's a spin-off, which means a new game, not an add-on

@alien33 @Spartan_418 He's asking wtf the game has to do with Far Cry 3. Why not just call it Blood Dragon or Far Cry 4?
