Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

What is Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon?

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a stand-alone "expansion pack" based on the world of Far Cry 3. Although Blood Dragon does not continue the story of Far Cry 3, it shares the same game engine and gameplay mechanics.


During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 setup package generally installs about 78 files and is usually about 444.12 MB (465,696,544 bytes). The installed file FC3BDUpdaterSteam.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.
