Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was thought to be an April Fools joke when it was first teased, but instead has become one of the most unusual games to come from a AAA development team in years.

If you want to get in on the 80's neon action though, you'll have to meet the Blood Dragon System Requirements, so lets check them out...

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP Service Pack 3

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+

RAM: 2GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 512 MB

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 530 GT or ATI Radeon HD 4650

DX: DirectX 9

HDD: 3 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64bit

CPU: Intel Core i3-530 2.9GHz or AMD Phenom II X2 550

RAM: 4GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 1GB

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 640 or Radeon HD 5770

DX: DirectX 11

 

Not a bad set of requirements all in all, and to be expected knowing the game is built with the Far Cry 3 Engine (hence the title).

In fact, that's one of the amazing things about this game; build using the same great engine, the game is not an expansion; it's a stand alone title that only costs £12.00! That's truly an 80's price to go along with the 80's lasers.

Some of you may have played the game already (tsk tsk), but it isn't technically out until May. Has anyone preordered the game? Are you surprised that a AAA developer is doing something so crazy and potentially risky? Tell us your thoughts!

I'm glad they put the price as $14.99 but considering it's all ready pirated and fully cracked before the release, they are kind of forced to.

Several, apparently. There are gameplay videos on YouTube, but since they are from a pirated version of the game they were probably taken down already.

The game is called 'Blood Dragon', I'm sure this is what they meant by that name.

Far Cry as in http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/far_cry Far Cry, not an actual 'far cry'. Same as Blood Dragons as in not 'fire-breathing, flying blood dragons', but Blood Dragons (gigantic lizard-creatures).
