Just Cause 3 News: Next Game In The Open World Sandbox Series Unveiled, Coming To PS4, Xbox One And PC
Publisher Square Enix and developer Avalanche Studios have revealed Just Cause 3, set to hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC next year.
The series--known for its extremely open sandbox gameplay--is taking the leap to the new generation of consoles, ready to harness the improved hardware for an even more impressive game world.
The new title is on Game Informer's cover this month, and the publication will be offering consistent updates on its development. The video below is a trailer for GI's coverage and conversations with the developers.
"We've been waiting for this moment ever since Just Cause 2 was released, said Christofer Sundberg, founder and Chief Creative Officer at Avalanche Studios. "This is the culmination of a decade's worth of open-world evolution and innovation. In Just Cause 3, we've sent Rico to a beautiful Mediterranean archipelago. He is of course bringing his Grapple and Parachute, both with game-changing upgrades, as well as the brand new Wingsuit. Just Cause 3 truly represents the next generation of chaotic sandbox fun, and we can't wait to show you more next year."
Wingsuit? Count me in. The past two games (particularly the second) are no-holds-barred fun, which actively encourage absurd antics and death-defying stunts. If you haven't played them, think a mixture of Grand Theft Auto and Far Cry that doesn't take itself seriously and hands the player the reigns.
