Trials of the Blood Dragon is the Mashup Nobody Expected

It’s like Nickelodeon made a game.


Remember Far Cry 3? That was a really good Ubisoft game. Ubisoft thought so too, because they later released the infamously strange and cartoonish Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon as DLC. Blood Dragon was a beautiful injection of ’90s nostalgia and neon, and now it has returned in the most unlikely of places. Everything from the 1980s and ’90s is being brought to life and fused with the motorbike-centric Trials games in Trials of the Blood Dragon. 

Also, you can play it right now.

Trials of the Blood Dragon is developed by Red Lynx, and fuses laser-disc loading with old-school Nickelodeon attitudes to create something with more cartoonish attitude than just about any other Ubisoft property has done. It can be downloaded for $14.99 now on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
