I just saw something amazing - Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon trailer!

far-cry-3-blood-dragon-SS01 When I first heard about this, I thought it was part of the April fools prank lineup from Ubisoft, but to our surprise it's no joke. This is no DLC, no expansion, just a standalone open world game filled with awesome. You play as Sgt. Rex Power Colt, a cyborg commando played by The Terminator and Aliens star Michael Biehn and....argh! screw the introductions! Have a look at the trailer below!

An 80's themed cyborg game? Why the hell not! From what we know so far, this game doesn't require the original Far Cry 3 game, and will be available through PSN, XBLA, and PC. With regards to the connection to Far Cry 3? From the looks of it, it's only the game's open world nature. Price is rumored to hit the $15 and if it has the right amount of content in it, by god this is a great buy.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will be available on PSN, XBLA, and PC on May 1

PS3 exclusive Far Cry 3 DLC out next week, adds two co-op chapters

Far-Cry-3-high-tidesThe first DLC for Far Cry 3 will be releasing exclusively on Playstation 3 next week. If you enjoyed the game's co-op, then you'd get a kick out of this free exclusive DLC because this adds two more chapters to that mode.

The two added chapters, called Jailbreak and Redepmtion, and continues were the original six chapters left off.

"We've got new missions, tougher fights, bigger competitions, some great up-close time with your favourite characters, and explosive moments unlike anything you've seen before."

High Tides will be out on January 15. The DLC will be included on the Playstation Store during its regular content update that usually happens around Tuesday.

No word yet if High Tides will hit Xbox 360 or PC. This isn't the first time Ubisoft has given Sony exclusive content for their games. For Assassin's Creed 3, the PS3 version was given an hour worth of exclusive content for PS3 owners.

New Far Cry 3 trailer introduces us to yet another insane bad buy

Far Cry 3 Another Far Cry 3 trailer, another crazy that needs to be formally introduced. Meet Hoyt Volker, he runs both slave and drug trafficking operations while maintaining a portion of the island with a mercenary army. Just when you thought Vaas was bad enough, you have another insane mastermind calling the shots.

With Hoyt Volker now introduced, it's hard to tell which character is the big anti protagonist, Vaas or Hoyt?

Need to get introduced to other characters in Far Cry 3? Check out the trailers for Vaas, Buck, Citra, and Dennis. Oh and Dr. Earnhardt. Yes, that's quite a lot of character trailers.

Far Cry 3 will be available on December 4 in the US, November 30 for the UK, and November 29 for Europe.

13 minute gameplay walkthrough video of Far Cry 3's open world

Far Cry 3 will be an open world FPS game, similar to Far Cry 2. Sound awesome right? Well it depends. Far Cry 2's open world felt like a chore to move forward when I played it back in 2008. The feel to explore wasn't there for me, so this was my main concern when I started learning about Far Cry 3, did they improve in that aspect of the game? Check out this video that gives us a good look at Far Cry 3's open world gameplay.

The commentators of this video are Mark Thompson, lead level designer and Jamie Keen, Lead game designer of Far Cry 3.

It's good to see that there will be different kinds of side quests to pick up to give you more incentive to explore. Adding wildlife is also a great new addition, which seems to go well with the game's crafting system. I'm pretty impressed with the game's setting and revealed characters so far, especially Vaas, but my Far Cry 2 playthrough keeps reminding me that I might experience the same issues I had with the game's exploration. So yes, I'm still pretty cautious about this one.

Far Cry 3 comes out on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on November 29 for Austrailia and in the UK, the US will get the game a few days after on November 4.
