Achievements List for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Suggests Standalone XBLA Game on the Way
A listing for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon showed it’s face this morning, suggesting that the rumoured continuation of last year’s smash hit, Far Cry 3, will be a standalone digital release.
The listing, which points out 400G’s worth of gamerpoint goodness, appeared on Exophase this morning. 400G is the standard score given out for an Xbox Live Arcade game these days since the score count was doubled last summer.
A close look at the listing suggests a shooter title, which isn’t surprising given the nature of the full game. We’ve known Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has been on the cards for a while now, with the title popping up on classification websites a couple of weeks back.
Far Cry 3 lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem went on record last month stating that he had something in mind in terms of continuation for the game, saying “I’m working on something now that will be surprising, I think, when it’s announced. But it definitely is a ‘strike while the iron’s hot’ thing, and we’ll see.”
