Get Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon totally free on PC this month

Starting on November 9, Ubisoft will be giving away free copies of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon on PC via the Ubisoft Club.

PC players can redeem their free copy of the game through the Ubisoft Club next week, and it’ll be theirs to keep forever.

Following in the footsteps of Beyond Good and Evil as part of Ubisoft’s new promotion, players have found themselves with a range of free goodies in 2016.

Having launched in April 2013 following the release of Far Cry 3, this excellent standalone expansion takes inspiration from 1980’s action movies and nostalgic cartoons. Oh, and there is SO MUCH NEON.

Taking place in the dystopian year of 2007 following the aftermath of a nuclear war, you play as Sergeant “Rex” Power Colt, a no-nonsense mercenary with a score to settle.

It’s wonderful homage to 1980s pop culture filled with all the Far Cry mechanics you’ve come to love over the years.

We gave it an impressive 7/10 in our review:

“Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon isn’t quite as brilliant or hilarious as it thinks it is, and the seven hour running time sees the joke and the gameplay stretched fairly thin. It’s foul-mouthed, gratuitously violent and sometimes shabby looking. Yet it’s still a lot of fun, with some fabulous gung-ho action, an excellent soundtrack and a clutch of fantastic one-liners.”
