While not as hype-inducing as Red Dead Redemption, Xbox’s Major Nelson has announced that Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is now backwards compatible on the Xbox One.
Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon still stands as one of the best things Ubisoft’s ever done. It’s an absolutely absurd riff on 80s sci-fi and action tropes, and the work done within the game is brilliant, albeit fleeting.
If you haven’t played Blood Dragon and your only gaming outlet is the Xbox One, snap this up. If you have a fairly capable PC (it doesn’t take much), you can probably scoop up Blood Dragon on the cheap at some point. Heck, it’s $15 right now on Steam. That’s the same price it’s selling for on the Xbox marketplace, too.
