The joke is on us as Ubisoft has officially confirmed that its 80s-styled standalone shooter Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will be available for digital download on May 1st.
Ubisoft says the spin-off contains around eight hours of original content and 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 as you take control of a new protagonist, Sgt. Rex Power Colt, a cyborg commando played by The Terminator and Aliens star Michael Biehn. Set in a 1980s envisioning of the year 2007, you’re out to bring down your old commanding officer and his battalion of ruthless killer cyborgs and you’ll stop at nothing to get the job done.
No pricing has been officially announced yet, but Steam has it listed at $14.99. Check out the reveal trailer below:
