Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

What is Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon?

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is a stand-alone expansion to the 2012 video game Far Cry 3. The game, a satire of 1980s action films, takes place on a retro-futuristic open world island crawling with evil, with players assuming the action role of eye-patched cyborg protagonist Sergeant Rex Power Colt.


The most common release is 1.00, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named Blacklist_Launcher.exe. The setup package generally installs about 213 files and is usually about 2.53 MB (2,653,352 bytes). The installed file FC3BDUpdater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
