At first we were all unsure whether Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was an actual release or an elaborate prank with April Fool’s Day just around the corner. It turns out that it’s not just DLC for Far Cry 3, but a full-on standalone title that’ll be coming to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC.
A few days ago it became apparent that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was the real deal with Ubisoft releasing a teaser site along with a teaser trailer which was every retro and 80s inspired. Yesterday proved the retro 80s vibe some more with Melbourne electronica group Power Glove uploading three tracks onto their Soundcloud account with the box art as the album cover.
The three tracks can be streamed for free and can be found here. The three tracks titled ‘Power Core’, ‘Sloan’s Assault’, and ‘Warzone’ remind me a lot of the Drive movie soundtrack mixed with the soundtrack for Dead Ops Arcade on Black Ops 1.
Two of the three soundtracks can also be found on the official Blood Dragon webpage confirming that these are in fact official sounds that’ll most likely accompany menu titles and in-game cinematics.
For a quick listen before you jump over to the SoundCloud site check out my favourite track Power Core above.
