Just Cause 3 Announced
Square Enix and Avalanche Studios today unveiled JUST CAUSE 3, a vast open-world action adventure, and the latest instalment in the much-loved JUST CAUSE series. JUST CAUSE 3 will be available in 2015 for PlayStation 4® computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
“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.”
Not much more is known at this point, however leaked photos indicating there were microtransactions at some stage are not indicative of the final product. Avalanche Studios have since confirmed that while there were microtransactions in the game during an experimental development period, they are no longer in the game at this present stage.
Editor’s take: I’m a big fan of Just Cause 1 and 2, so much so that I bought Just cause 2 on both Xbox 360 and on Steam. Here’s hoping that Avalanche realise the popularity of the multiplayer mod for the PC build and give us a multiplayer mode in Just Cause 3!
