Standalone Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon listed on Xbox Marketplace

Remember that Far Cry 3 spin-off that was revealed on April 1st and was clearly a joke? It’s not a joke.

In fact, it sounds quite amazing.

A presumably accidental listing for the game on the Xbox Live Marketplace reveals that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will be a standalone title inspired by futuristic 1980s action movies.

It is also set to star Michael Biehn, otherwise known as Sergeant Kyle Reese from 1984 cult sci-fi movie The Terminator.

"Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place on a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil,” the listing reads. 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 clich of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide. Playing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon doesn’t require a copy of Far Cry 3.”

A May 1st release date has been suggested.
