Square Enix today officially announced Just Cause 4, the next entry in the highly successful action-sandbox series, developed by Avalanche Studios.
Unveiled via a brand-new gameplay trailer during the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing, Just Cause 4 is set in the fictional South American world of Solis. Naturally, Rico Rodriguez returns with his trademark parachute, wingsuit and grapple hook, which all have new functionality and are “fully customisable”. The team confirmed that the title will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC, with release slated for December 4th.
Speaking alongside the release of the trailer Francesco Antolini, Game Director at Avalanche Studios, had this to say:
“We’ve taken everything that players loved from our previous games and with brand new features, enhanced physics and core gameplay improvements, we’ve created the most ambitious Just Cause experience to date. The introduction of Extreme Weather is a complete game changer – players will not have seen anything like this in a videogame. We have created fully physicalized tornadoes, blizzards, sandstorms and torrential downpours which affect gameplay in a very real way. All of this is now possible thanks to our brand-new Apex engine.”
