I dunno, looks kinda interesting to me.
And aleast they're doing more than just Multiplayer DLC.

So it's nothing to do with Far Cry 3 in all but name and engine?

They had me at Michael Biehn! This sounds so whacky its practically genius... it could actually be the greatest expansion/dlc this gen!

This is sounding better and better every time. They could have easily done Zombie DLC but they didn't. PS3 will likely get this first so I'm happy :D

The colour scheme (Brown with Neon lights) reminds me of the Pirate homeworld from Metroid Prime 3.

It sounds good, but this is only one possible future. From your point of view... I don't know tech stuff.

Absolutely Brilliant!

Wonder if Michael Beihn will just phone it in like he did in Colonial Marines, very sub par voice acting by him in that (granted it fit in with the rest of the sub par game)

Really enjoyed Far Cry 3, and an 80's VHS b-action-movie style game might be awesome!

AS I have already said, there is NO reason to have "farcry 3" in the name. Farcry can still be used, but call it something like "Farcry Cyber Shooter" or whatever...Its a stand alone game...

I am not saying that this wont be good.

Whilst this looks interesting it shouldn't be called Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, just trying to make more money!

Really don't understand the reason for keeping the Far Cry 3 name. Could be good.
EA Sports: It's in the game(for a price).
