Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon gets release date and... '80s film star Michael Biehn?

The madness continues.

Ubisoft's bonkers and still unannounced Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will star '80s action man Michael Biehn.

The downloadable PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 spin-off is due to launch on 1st May, its listing on Xbox.com has revealed.

Terminator and Aliens actor Biehn is likely voicing the game's eye-patched protagonist Sargent Rex Colt, whose mission it is to defeat a rogue cyborg army.

Set in a dystopian 2007, Ubisoft describes the game as "an '80s VHS vision of the future" where you must "get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world".

How it links with last year's main Far Cry 3 game is still a mystery.

Today's news is the latest in a long line of leaks surrounding the downloadable side-story. First spotted last month via leaked box art, a sneakily-spotted ratings board listing and an Achievements list soon followed.

"I'm working on something now that will be surprising, I think, when it's announced," Far Cry 3's lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem earlier this year. "But it definitely is a 'strike while the iron's hot' thing, and we'll see."
