Welcome to the Future… 2007.
What? You don’t remember six years ago when an evil warlord built a skull-shaped fortress of death and rampaging Blood Dragons roamed the countryside? And Mark IV Cyber Commando Rex Power Colt saved the day? Is this really news to you?
Good thing we have Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon to chronicle this neon and chrome drenched war. It’s available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade today for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15). And if you’re unfairly being kept away from your 360 all day, might I suggest viewing the launch trailer above?
Or reading the game’s righteous description:
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place on a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil. Welcome to an 80’s VHS vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando who’s fighting against a cyborg army gone rogue. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world. Experience every cliché of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy SEALs) collide.
