Ubisoft had me worried when it seemed like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was just an April Fools joke, but it’s thankfully a real game. The spin-off of last year’s incredible open world shooter takes players back into an 80s infused alternate reality 2007 that looks parts Terminator, Escape From New York and G.I. Joe. The result is something that can only be described as incredible.
To celebrate the game’s announcement, Ubisoft released a trailer today that combines old VHS footage, G.I. Joe-style animation, and gameplay footage into what must be the greatest game trailer released in the past five years:
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will be assaulting your eyeballs on May 1. It will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The best part – it doesn’t require Far Cry 3 to play. It’s an entirely separate experience that’s a love letter to everything children of the 80s grew up with.
