Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon gameplay appears online
Footage of the upcoming Far Cry 3 Expansion has leaked onto the internet
UPDATE TWO: It has now been revealed how the following footage was released to the net. Russian hackers have discovered an exploit that makes Ubisoft’s Steam style service, uPlay, believe that you already own the game you’re trying to download, enabling them to obtain it for free. Tip of the hat to Gameranx for publishing the below screenshot, showing Blood Dragon in the process of downloading. Both of the original videos from Dailymotion have now been rejected by the company, however, the Twitch TV stream still works. We have contacted Ubisoft for a comment on the leaks, but so far, no response.
UPDATE: Shout out to Reddit user PrototypeT800, who sent us a video on demand version of a twitch tv stream with a little over two hours of gameplay footage.
ORIGINAL STORY: Thanks to Dailymotion user, Xboxygen, fifteen minutes of the stand alone expansion to Far Cry 3 has leaked online. Not just cutscene either… gameplay too.
From what is shown in the videos, the gameplay from Far Cry 3 seems intact; with enemy tagging and stealth takedowns in still in the game. However, the game has been layers with the stylings of the 1980s. A little part of me thinks that this is a staged leak, thanks to the fact that alot of this game is out in the public domain and Ubisoft have yet to comment, but, hey, it’s still awesome.
According to an listing on the Xbox Marketplace website, which has now been removed, the title will not require Far Cry 3 to play and release on May 1st.
“Welcome to an 80′s VHS vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando who’s fighting against a cyborg army gone rogue. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world.
“Experience every cliche of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide.”
Part one of the video is above, part two is below.
