Just look at all the purple.

After copious “leaks” over the past few weeks, Ubisoft has officially unveiled Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon via an article on Eurogamer…and it looks insanely wonderful. A stand-alone downloadable title for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, it takes the bones of Far Cry 3 and wraps it in 80’s day-glo action cliches:

In fact everything from Far Cry 3’s been given a lurid twist in Blood Dragon, and the results are often brilliant. Take to the waters, for example, and there’s a new threat waiting. “They’re called cybersharks,” explains Evans. “They don’t have any new attacks, but they do have a chrome shader with neon teeth and eyes. Just wait until you see one coming up with glowing orange teeth and eyes. We’ve got cyberpanthers – it’s fun taking the existing creatures and giving them a whole new look.”

 

Cyber. Panthers.

Sign me up. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will be released soon, but in the meantime, head over to Eurogamer and relish in the purple.
