Far Cry 5's next DLC offering - Dead Living Zombies - will release on 28th August 2018, and from a split-second tease near the end of its latest trailer, it seems Far Cry's fan-favourite Blood Dragons are making a comeback.
The latest DLC content promises a zombified version of Romeo and Juliet, where Romeo is - for reasons left unexplained - a Frankenstein's monster-esque patchwork of other B-movie creatures, including what appears to be a werewolf, a vampire, a mummy, and bits of Frankenstein's mutilated buddy, too (which makes it a Frankenstein monster of Frankenstein's monster, right? I think?)
Chuck in a little Bridges of Madison County and that's all I thought Dead Living Zombies was... right until I got to the end of the teaser (thanks, PCGN). While the trailer focuses chiefly on a fairly predictable bevvy of undead denizens, in the dying seconds there's a shot of a Blood Dragon. Here, take a look, paying particularly close attention when it gets to 0.36:
You may remember Blood Dragons from that gaudy, neon-drenched Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon spin-off that was as incredible as it was unexpected. Since then, Far Cry fans have had something of a soft spot for them.
Of course, there's no need to wait if you're playing on Xbox One - some players with the Far Cry 5: Gold Edition or the Far Cry 5 Season Pass were able to play it a little early courtesy of an unexpected (and unplanned) early release.
