Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon’s director hoping for a sequel

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a weird beast, but we love it — and so do a lot of critics. Enough, apparently, to justify creative director Dean Evans taking the idea of a sequel to the Ubisoft board.

The news comes from lead voice actor Michael Beihn, who spilled the beihns to Major Nelson radio when he said “[Evans] was with me on the phone last night. He was pretty jacked up.”

“He was going into a meeting today, to you know – I think he wants to turn it into some sort of franchise,” said Beihn. “He’s got a sequel in mind.”

Check out our video review of Blood Dragon right here. It’s a game where there are literally sharks with laser beams on their heads.

Ubisoft, here’s a free hot tip: This is a TERRIBLE idea. This game works because it is crazy in microcosm.

 

I know I’d buy it. They could break it off and turn it into a series of small, cheap games with tacky names and 80′s themed futuristic scenery. Blood Dragon 2: the Bloodening could be the next for example. Blood Dragon 3: Blood Vengeance of Blood. Blood Dragon 4: Blood on a Plane! …and so on and so forth, you get the picture.

 

vcatkiller,

Vcat gets it.

You keep your free tip to yourself. If they can recreate what they did and keep it fresh why the hell not release more. Everyone seems to be enjoying it and wanting more

korbain,

I’m with Jason, I just don’t think they can keep it fresh with sequels.

While I should be in the perfect demographic for Blood Dragon (80′s teen), I just can’t get over the fact from the gameplay and comments I’ve seen, that the idea of the game appeals to me (which it does) far more than actually playing it. I can’t convince myself that as an actual game it’s interesting enough to sustain more than a couple of hours of playtime.

 

That’s ok, the game only had a few hours of game time anyhow. That’s all it needed though, as the time was quality game time. If there are sequels that’s the main philosophy they’d have to follow, ie nice and compact, with enough content to keep it from feeling like a drag. That and try not to take themselves too serious, get Micheal Beihn back and more exploding sniper rifle. I loved that gun, seriously.

You could actually finish the game in less than 5 hours or perhaps 4 hours if you have a Blood Dragon walkthrough on your side.

I think there should be a sequel but no words of confirmation from Ubisoft only from Micheal Biehn, I’m really hopeful though.
