Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon exposed through Uplay leak

Russian hackers have reportedly found an exploit in Uplay, allowing them to download games for free including the unreleased Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Russian hackers have reportedly broken the security of Ubisoft's Uplay distribution platform, allowing them to illegally access content. The software hack allows them to mark a game as owned, and it seems to have already been used to download the unreleased Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. And, of course, release footage online.

Eurogamer reports that more than half an hour of Blood Dragon footage was posted to YouTube earlier today, then pulled. However, as the internet never forgets, it appears gamers are constantly uploading new footage onto the video sharing site. A simple search should find new videos, should this one go down:

Update - Regarding the hack, an Ubisoft representative has told Shacknews: "We are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it quickly. No personal information was compromised. Uplay's PC download service will be unavailable until the problem is fixed, however all other Uplay services remain available."

        seems like it is to recharge his health.

        You can heal yourself without a health pack in FC3 (for less health gain), and that is the animation.

          Well, that's the animation in this game. In FC3 vanilla the animation is un-dislocating his thumb.

      Hmmm, suddenly not quite so excited about this game. It's just a reskinned far cry 3. Most of the animations are exactly the same.

        It's basically a skinned DLC expansion that is meant to tickle an 80s retro itch. This isn't meant to be a different game.

      Just tried this game at a friend's house, really awesome!! can't wait for them to release it, I wasn't sure at first if I was going to purchase it but now its an instant buy from me!

      The atmosphere, music, sound effects, colors, cheesy dialogues and large laser shooting reptiles are awesome!

      Too bad it was leaked this early, they should definitely release it earlier to minimize the damage.
