Ubisoft has officially confirmed that its Montreal studio is developing the oft-rumoured Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and that the game will be available for digital download on May 1.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, and Ubisoft says the spin-off contains around eight hours of original content. The game features a single open-world island to explore, with many of Far Cry 3's gameplay systems and mechanics making a return, such as hunting, gathering numerous collectibles, and liberating outposts.
The original Far Cry 3 will not be required in order to play Blood Dragon.
Information about the '80s-themed Far Cry 3 spin-off has been leaked numerous times, starting with a listing on the Brazilian classification ratings group and culminating in more than 30 minutes of footage of the game appearing online.
Earlier this week hackers managed to break open Ubisoft's digital PC platform uPlay and get free access to its games, including the currently unreleased Blood Dragon. Ubisoft has temporarily closed the service while it works on a fix.
