A quick behind-the-scenes video for the upcoming Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon features the creative director for the total conversion, standalone mod and legendary B-movie actor Michael Biehn, second-hand star in movies like Terminator and Aliens.

Dean Evans, creative director for Blood Dragon, asks Biehn a few questions while expressing his man-love to the famous action star. Biehn plays Rex “Power” Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando in the upcoming 1980s themed neon-colored modification for Far Cry 3 called Blood Dragon. The standalone conversion sees players taking on the role of Colt as he attempts to stop an evil cyber general and take over his bases while unleashing the fury of the Blood Dragon.

Of all the AAA titles released and coming out, this is probably the one game that has me very excited, and the best part about it is that it's a budget-priced standalone expansion. Ubisoft easily could have made this some expensive, $19.99 DLC for Far Cry 3, forcing people to buy the latter in order to get the former, but they've done right by the community and they're releasing this uber-awesome expansion as if it were an indie title. I love it.

While I don't like Uplay, I hate Ubisoft's DRM and I abhor milk-based DLC, I at least have to applaud Ubisoft in this scenario for doing it right...but I still don't like Uplay.

You can look for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon to launch on May 1st. Need more info? Feel free to visit the Official Website.
