Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Sells 500,000 Copies, Ubisoft "Very Happy"

It seems that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has become something of a success for Ubisoft, with the insane 80s inspired spin-off managing to reach 500,000 copies sold across all formats in less than two months, while also helping to boost sales of the full version of Far Cry 3.

Speaking to GI.biz, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said he was "very happy" with the performance of both Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, each of which have enjoyed success as digital download titles based upon Ubisoft's existing retail brands.

The success of Blood Dragon and Gunslinger means that Ubisoft will be looking to explore the formula further in the future with other brand extensions touted as downloadable offerings. Sequels to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and CoJ: Gunslinger could possibly see the light of day too, thanks to the sales figures.

Both Blood Dragon and Gunslinger are available on the Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points each.

@7

Yes it is. FC3: Blood Dragon is somewhat of an absurd ode to all the 'cool' action flicks from the 80's. Cyborgs, robots, and laser eye shooting dinosaurs!

What more do you want?!

As much as I enjoyed the 80s feel to this game, I just couldn't play it.

Be interesting to see what Ubisoft has planned for the Blood Dragon franchise now, Since they're going to do a AAA game now.

How can you make a AAA game from something that gets it's charms from it's B-movie style... They might try a BBB game though ;)

Ziplines are ropes in the sky. Why aren't they called skyropes?

Even though I was born late 90's, I felt so nostalgic over this game. I'd love to see a sequel. Kind of sad that the only real stealth weapons were the Bow
(awesome btw) and the Takedown. I know you're supposed to feel like an action hero and mow everyone down with lead, but there were heroes that used stealth too. This game was the reason I bought Far Cry 3 at all. Both are great.

Blood Dragon was a hoot. The dilogue, characters and soundtrack kicked ass.
