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
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!
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.
