Netflix’s promisingly outlandish Far Cry animated adaptation is almost upon us, with the series – titled Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix – set to hit the streaming service on 19th October. And ahead of its arrival, Netflix has shared a fresh trailer showcasing its chaotic action, this one welcoming Rayman and a bunch of other familiar Ubisoft faces.
Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix takes its cue from Ubisoft’s gleefully ludicrous, 80s-inspired Far Cry 3 expansion, Blood Dragon. It’s set in an alternate version of Earth’s 1992 where a massive tech company, Eden, exerts social control via mass surveillance and big data.
Enter series protagonist Dolph Laserhawk, a cybernetically enhanced super soldier who escapes from the Eden army and decides to embark on one final heist before sailing off into the sunset with his boyfriend Alex. Unfortunately, Laserhawk is betrayed by said boyfriend, landing him in high-security facility with no choice but to join forces with an unlikely bunch of rebels.
