On August 9th, 2016, Ubisoft’s neon-ridden Far Cry 3 spin-off Blood Dragon will be added to the Xbox One’s ever-expanding library of backward compatible games.
When Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon first launched on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2013, the game was praised for its lovable retro style that combined the best of Far Cry with cheesy 1960 sci-fi flicks in the most hilarious kind of way, yet some performance issues did hold it down.
You take on the role of Rex Colt, your typical foul-mouthed and audibly depressed hardcore cyborg sergeant who has to stop his former ally Colonel Sloan from taking over the world. That world being the retro-fueled distant future of 2007. And no, we’re not nearly intoxicated enough to make any of this stuff up.
If that professional description didn’t convince you to get yourself a copy of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, I truly don’t know what will. If you’ve already owned the title on Xbox 360, you can simply download the game by logging in to your account on Xbox One and checking your library. If you own a retail version of the game, popping it into your Xbox One should do the trick.
Unfortunately, the Blood Dragon trend isn’t as successful for all of Ubisoft’s IPs, with the latest Trials of the Blood Dragon failing to reach the same level of personality as the Far Cry 3 spin-off did.
