Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon announced in trailer, coming to platforms May 1

 
The retro extravaganza that is Ubisoft’s upcoming shooter, “Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon’ finally has a release date.
 
After the existence of the game was leaked early on the Xbox Live Marketplace, Ubisoft has released the official trailer for the downloadable title. ‘Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon’ is a spin-off of Ubisoft’s highly acclaimed open-world title ‘Far Cry 3’. The game will be made available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC later this year.
 
The video (shown above) shows the over-the-top retro feel of the game’s theme. The mock-VHS style trailer shows a bit of gameplay mixed in with a faux cartoon highlighting some of the game’s main characters. The trailer states that the game will be available on May 1, 2007 so we are assuming the month and day are correct, and the year is part of the joke.
