Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a standalone game


Even though the first information about the new Far Cry came on April fools day, looks like they were not joke. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is very much based on the concepts of Far Cry 3, but now it is certain that it is not an expansion, but an entirely new standalone title. In the description of the game on the Xbox Marketplace stands the tha game takes place in a bizarre retro-futuristic island, and this time we're in the role of Sergeant Rex Colt.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon or Back to the 80’s?

Blood Dragon

Ubisoft Montreal is currently working on a mysterious project called Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. It was not immediately clear if the Blood Dragon is an expansion, a less extensive DLC or something else. In any case, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon aesthetic draws inspiration from the eighties, which is something you definitely do not fit into the world of the original Far Cry 3. Worth noting is that the official website came to life on April’s fool’s day, but looks like it is not a joke.

A long time ago, when computers had Turbo buttons to give that extra 50 CPU ticks and make it total of 100MHz, one of the most interesting games was without a doubt The Settlers. This game had several extensions and of course an online version of the game was also released, but so far only in digital form. Settlers Online will bring a packaged release with a bunch of extra content for half the price you would normally pay for them within the game.

This time it is our friends over at Ubisoft and the claim is that 95% of their titles are pirated.

Ubisoft has responded to the claims that its UPlay DRM software is a rootkit that enabled them (and anyone else) to install arbitrary code on systems that it was installed on. The original claim was from developer Travis Ormandy who posted the issue on pastebin and also showed the vulnerability working with a website specially crafted to take advantage of the exploit he found. Ormandy likened the issue to Sony’s famous screw up with their BMG DRM that was in actuality a rootkit and caused the recall of quite a bit of Sony games.
