Trials of the Blood Dragon is the most radical post-apocalyptic BMX game ever

Three years ago, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon blew everyone away by combining the neon-soaked aesthetics of direct-to-video schlock from the 80s with the first-person shooting of Ubisoft’s Far Cry franchise. So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that a similarly insane mashup has lead to a sequel at the 2016 E3 Expo.

Ubisoft recruited RedLynx to create Trials of the Blood Dragon, a mixture of side-scrolling stunt cycling and the absolutely cracked worldview of the Blood Dragon franchise. I’ll let the UbiBlog do the talking:

It’s been 12 years since the neon-drenched events of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and only the cybercommando children of Rex Power Colt can win Vietnam War 4. Where their father fought evil soldiers and hulking Blood Dragons in a first-person shooter, however, they’re taking a different approach, waging battle while pulling off sick stunts with a motorbike – as well as with a BMX, an eight-wheeled tank, a minecart, a jetpack, a turbo flip R/C car, a grappling hook, and their own cyber-enhanced legs.

Combining the hyperstylized attitude and shooting of Blood Dragon with the demanding, physics-based motocross platforming of Trials and a soundtrack by Power Glove, Trials of the Blood Dragon creates something wholly unique, putting Colt’s twin son and daughter through a 30-mission storyline in which they’ll blast their way through Vietnam, Miami, Japan, a lost temple, outer space, and even Hell.

Oh, and Trials of the Blood Dragon is now available to download on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
