Ubisoft has released additional screenshots for Far Cry 3's upcoming standalone expansion Blood Dragon. One of the shots gives us our first look at the dragons hinted at in the title.

Blood Dragon takes inspiration from a 1980's action film. In the film's neon-filled future, the world has been ravaged by nuclear warfare. A cyborg army known as Omega Force is preparing a bioweapon on a tropical island. Sergeant Rex Power Colt (played by Michael Biehn) must defeat this army and destroy the bioweapon.

The new open-world environment of Blood Dragon isn't filled with tigers and buffaloes like the island in Far Cry 3. Instead, players will encounter mutants and dragons. The dragons, according to Ubisoft, will actually shoot lasers.

Over Twitter, Ubisoft revealed that the game will have 7 missions for Rex Power Colt to tackle. They estimate that it will take about 6-8 hours to complete.

The $15 expansion will debut on May 1st on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. If you pre-purchase through Steam, you'll get the soundtrack for no additional charge. Presumably the soundtrack, like the game itself, is 80's-tastic.
