Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon to return

News Aaron Birch 6 May 2013 - 08:33

Far Cry 3's spin-off may become a new franchise, it's been revealed...

The neon-soaked spin-off for Far Cry 3, Blood Dragon is out now, and is a treat for 80s action fans. Although not the same calibre of game as Far Cry 3 itself, being a stripped down sci-fi re-imaging of the series, it's a damn fine bit of digital content, and if the Creative Director of the title has his way, we could be seeing more of Rex Power Colt in the future.

Speaking to Major Nelson, lead voice actor of the game and 80s action star, Michael Biehn said that Dean Evans, Blood Dragon's Creative Director, is in negotiations to produce a sequel.

"Dean was with me on the phone last night," Biehn said. "He was pretty jacked up. He was going into a meeting today. I think he wants to turn it into some sort of franchise. He's got a sequel in mind."

Another, full-fledged outing of Blood Dragon would certainly be interesting, especially if it was more varied and had a more complex structure than the relatively slim and repetitive play the game has now. However, general reception for the game has been good, so it would be a good move for Ubisoft to commission another visit to the eye-melting 'future' of Blood Dragon.

I bought it. The sound didn't work, the colors were so bright you could barely make out what was happening, the controls kept demanding I do some sort of complex keyboard combo (up down, left, fire jump?!) and it generally felt unfinished, untested, and was quite headache inducing I would avoid at least until they fix some of the horrendous bugs.

I got it as part of a Promotion from a GPU i bought, that was 5 days ago. None of this stuff you mentioned is apparent from what i have seen and played upto now. Controls are the same as FC3, nothing complicated the only colour issues i noted being overly bright were the cutscenes because thats a how they done way back when. The game itself is no more over-tuned than FC3 either. The game feels fine to me so far, fluid and smooth, not found any bugs yet but havent really got that far in. Maybe it was just your copy (if you DL'd it)
