Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon will launch on XBLA - and presumably PlayStation Network and PC - in May, according to a listing on Xbox.com.

The standalone shooter, which has yet to be officially announced by Ubisoft, is said to be set in an "80s VHS vision" of a 21st century future, star 80s action hero Michael Biehn and, according to Xbox.com, let players "experience every cliche of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future".

"Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place on a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil," reads the game's description.

"Welcome to an 80's VHS vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando who's fighting against a cyborg army gone rogue. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world.

"Experience every cliché of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide."

The game does not require a copy of Far Cry 3 to play, the description confirms.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was first rumoured to be in development last month after the game's achievements leaked online. A website pretending that the game was a movie later appeared on April Fool's Day.

How it's all related to Far Cry 3, though, we have no idea...
