Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon soundtrack and screens are loving homage to Terminator and the 80s

Something’s spreading through Ubisoft, it’s excising useless rot like the po-faced Assassin’s Creed in favour of pirates and swashbuckling, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is getting closer to release with each passing day, and, now, we learn that Power Glove are scoring Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Power Glove!

Plus, the latest screens show a game dripping with 80s love, there are vibrant greens and blues, lasers, lens flares. My goodness it’s glorious

Australian duo Power Glove - not, as I previously thought, the American power metal insturmental band Powerglove - are scoring the new expandalone, which we still only know a little about.

Some of the tracks Power Glove have written for the game have appeared on their Soundcloud page:

It sounds damn good.

It looks pretty great too:

Rockets with "Danger" written on them!

Gun-holding gauntlet covered in bright green lights!

Soldier casually leaning against a crate!

Shotgun that fires sparklers!

Purple cabling!

Explosions!

If this is a sign of things to come for Far Cry 3, with individual projects styled wildly differently to the original game being released as regular expansions, then this could be a unique move for a big developer. A unique and excellent move. It approaches something like what the Bioshock franchise could become, the name simply acting as a rough schema of what game to expect but with the setting, influences, and themes shifting between titles.

Power Glove is awesome. This whole thing is awesome, although it's no dinosaur themed expansion pack. It's clear that that's not off the table though, if Ubi Soft's Far Cry 3 is going to be this insane and totally fun about their DLC for the game:) I'm happy with this; so happy. Megapublishers don't do things this cool ever. Bravo Ubi Soft.

The only other thing I would love to see here would be 8-bit style cutscenes. Like the kind in Ninja Gaiden, Shatterhand or Oniken. With "box art" like this (can a digital game even have "box art"?), it's kind of begging for it. And Ubi Soft does have some good sprite artists; like the guys at Ubi Soft Montreal who started Scott Pilgrim, or the guys at Ubi Soft Shanghai who finished it.
