In Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, you play a Mark IV Cyber-Commando named Rex Power Colt, and if that doesn’t tell you basically everything you need to know about what sort of game this is then I… really don’t know what else to tell you. Perhaps this video review will help you understand.
(Sorry about the awful voice acting.)

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon hasn’t even been announced for PC. There was a listing for it on the Steam database, but no release date (although a pulled XBLA listing claimed May 1). And yet, right now, you can open uPlay on your PC and trick it into downloading it for you. Then, you can play it to your heart’s content. Beginning to end.
This isn’t some half-assed beta. This is the full, finished game. It’s just sitting there on uPlay’s servers, waiting for the bigwigs to pull the switch.
Is this legal? Probably not. And just to be safe, I’m not going to tell you how to do it. By tomorrow morning Ubisoft will have fixed this exploit anyway. They’re not stupid, and in any case, that’s not the point.
The real point here is this: Ubisoft is off to a pretty poor start on its mission to improve its relationship with PC gamers.
