The existence of Just Cause 3 has been a poor kept secret to avid gamers, but that hasn't made the wait for more details any less infuriating. Developer Avalanche Studios has been hard at work on the game, presumably, for quite some time, and it's now making it's existence known by appearing on the cover of the latest issue of Game Informer.
Known for scoring a bounty of exclusive gaming announcements, the fact that Eidos opted to utilize the publication to showcase it's third-person, grapple-tastic shooter isn't shocking. What may come as a bit of a surprise, however, is the fact that Game Informer has already played several hours of Just Cause 3.
According to the teaser published on the magazine's official website, the game takes place in a "fictional Mediterranean archipelago." This means that players will be cruising around to different islands in order to overthrow a dictator and other sorts of villainous scum, but this time there are new tools at each fan's disposal.
Allegedly the grapple hook and parachute mechanics have been given a much appreciated overhaul, making them much more user-friendly and enjoyable in the process. Meanwhile, if tethering cars together or hooking yourself onto moving planes weren't already enough, Just Cause 3 adds a wingsuit to the already off-the-wall game. That's right, a freaking wingsuit.
The game itself is currently slated to arrive on PC, PS4 and Xbox One at some point in 2015 – much to the delight of gamers that have grown tired of modding Just Cause 2 – and it sounds as if the visuals and mechanics will be on the receiving end some high-end polish.
Game Informer plans on releasing new details on its official website throughout the course of this month, but anyone with a digital subscription to the gaming publication can check out some groovy new details right now.
Based on the information coming from Game Informer, it sounds as if fans of the series will be far from disappointed. Of course, there are still a plethora of facts that have yet to be released, so expect tons of news in the coming days, weeks and months.
