Far Cry 3 Receives Free Blood Dragon Map Editor Content, Far Cry HD Listed by Ratings Board

Far Cry 3's map editor has been updated with assets from the XBLA spin-off, Blood Dragon.

You can grab the retro-futuristic 80’s content now for free over Xbox Live. It’s called ‘Mark IV Style’ and carries the description, “The year is 2007, it is the future. Create your own homage to the VHS-era with new themes and items in this expanded map editor pack.” You can queue it for download here.

Meanwhile, a listing for Far Cry HD on PS3 and Xbox 360 has turned up on the Brazilian Ratings Board, suggesting that the first game in the series is set for a polish up and re-release.

Released in 2004 for PC, Far Cry is the only game in the main, numbered series to be developed by Crysis devs Crytek. It follows former U.S. Army Special Forces operative Jack Carver, who gets stranded on a mysterious tropical archipelago and shoots lots of things.

Expect an announcement for this one sooner rather than later.

That's pretty cool for free. Maybe time to pick up Far Cry 3. Loved Blood Dragon.

@6 not the console game, the original PC game. They're 2 separate games. Both have Jack Carver, but the PC game has none of the feral ability stuff. Just you and guns.

I downloaded it but still haven't even played it. I started playing Witcher 2 the same day and I just haven't stopped yet.

Blood Dragon looked really cool, but I'm going to wait for a sale to pick it up. I'd still really love a dinosaur Island DLC for Far Cry 3 but with the release of Blood Dragon I feel like it will never happen :(

@6 The original version of Far Cry developed by Crytek has none of the Feral abilities added in the later console versions and is more like Cryis in it's free roam nature than the linear missions that the console versions had.`

#9: Was that a real thing? The dinosaur island? Not just a poor humour video on Explosive Alan?

There was a similar rumour about a dinosaur mode/island on Battlefield 3 that never happened either.

Is original far cry a completely different game to instincts? Or did they just 'alter' the original game for consoles?

Far Cry HD sounds interesting. I've played all the console versions but never had a chance to play the original PC version, so i'll pick that up if it comes out. Still havent got Blood Dragon yet but that will be a definite purchase next month.

FC 3 is best game last year and Blood Dragon is so good even bit more for great. Both got fantastic story.

I look forward FC 4 and FC: Blood Dragon 2 one day future. I am sure both will delight returns. :)

@14 besides what's been already said, about it being more open world and no feral abilities, the story itself is slightly different. characters and setting is different. the overall game is similar, but the pc original has always been considered vastly superior to instints from what ive heard.
just like the first crysis, i was never able to play this cause had a crap computer at the time so definatly gonna check this out
