Forget everything you think you know about Far Cry 3 when starting Blood Dragon. With the exception of the core element of an open-world on a tropical island, there’s hardly anything that has stayed the same. The entire Far Cry 3 experience has been streamlined as there is no longer a need to sell the items looted, sorry, pilfered. Levels are gained and given to you without so much as seeing a skill tree. There are analogues to pistols, shotguns, SMGs, sniper rifles as they all return with new names with futuristic-sounding attachments. Enemies are varied, and are no longer simple pirates. These cyborgs want you deader than a “Where’s the Beef?” commercial.
The co-op story is far from over in the High Tides DLC co-op pack, available for free today on the Sony PlayStation®Network. This exclusive DLC contains two new story chapters with four to five missions each and four character skins for Mikhail, Callum, Tisha and Leonard. Hoyt’s privateers have ambushed the four survivors and taken them hostage. It’s up to you and your friends to escape an underground prison and find a way off this island of insanity.

Far Cry 3. It’s a game. It’s also, the best, most bombastic, kick-ass and batshit insane Far Cry game yet. You play as Jason Brody, a “DudeBro” who has come to Rook Island to party with your friends and your two brothers. When you and your group are kidnapped, it’s up to you to escape and systematically free your friends from Vaas, the madman who was behind it. He plans to sell your into slavery. Brody’s transformation from wimpy white kid from the States into hardened killer of mercenaries and assassins is somewhat jarring at first. Not only does this lend some story-credence to the built in RPG mechanics, it also provides a some what relatable narrative.

In Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island. In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles they choose to fight to the allies or enemies they make along the way. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong.
“We’re taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience,” said Dan Hay, producer at Ubisoft. “Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players.”
