Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Classic Edition Coming To Next-Generation Consoles

ESRB rating confirms that the spin-off is coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was released as a spin-off after Far Cry 3 in 2013 and is the eighth instalment in the Far Cry franchise. It became highly successful and even received acclaim from critics for its aesthetically pleasing visuals and uncommon gameplay. In June, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Classic Edition will be a part of the Far Cry 6 Season Pass. Recently, ESRB rated Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Classic Edition along with the platforms that it’ll support, which includes all the current and next-generation consoles.

The summary for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Classic Edition’s ESRB Rating on the website reads, “This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of Rex Power Colt, a cyber-commando tasked with neutralizing his former commanding officer. Players use pistols, machine guns, shotguns, explosives, and futuristic weapons to kill robotic cyber soldiers and mutant creatures in frenetic combat. Players can also employ close-combat attacks to stab enemies in the back and chest with a short sword. Battles are accompanied by screams of pain, realistic gunfire, and large explosions. Cyber enemies emit splashes of bright blue liquid when hit; a handful of still-frame cutscenes depict red blood when characters are shot. During the course of the game, a still-frame cutscene depicts silhouetted characters engaging in a brief *** act—sexual moaning sounds/dialogue is heard; bare buttocks and breasts are briefly depicted. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in the game.

On a side note, the website mentions the supported platforms; Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series; alongside the usual “MATURE 17+” rating. Since this is the previously released spin-off being ported to current and next-generation consoles, it probably won’t be a remastered version and the gameplay might be restricted to 30 FPS, as was with the original release. Although, we’ll have to wait until the release of Far Cry 6 on 7th October this year!
