Who would have thought that a video game character with a grappling hook and a parachute would make such a great action hero? Well, pretty much everyone, but Avalanche Studios’ proved that with their Just Cause series. While the concept is definitely over-the-top and a little silly, it definitely makes for a fun and entertaining game.
Considering that popularity, fans were appropriately excited when Square Enix announced that Just Cause 3 would be coming in 2015. Players will once again arm themselves with a grappling hook and a parachute and wreak havoc as protagonist Rico Rodriguez.
In anticipation for the release of the open world action-adventure game, Square Enix has today released the above gameplay trailer for Just Cause 3, and it’s everything we were hoping for. It has explosions, aerial stunts, gunfights, and of course, the grappling hook and parachute.
The impressive trailer gives gamers a taste of the high-octane, fast-paced game that is sure to entertain Just Cause veterans and first-timers alike. And from the looks of it, we expect this game to be far more over-the-top and wild than its predecessors.
In addition to the game’s intensity and destruction, the trailer gives gamers a brief look into the game’s story. Just Cause 3 will take players to Medici, Rodriguez’s hometown, which is under the rule of a terrible dictator, General Di Ravello. Players will have the opportunity to take on Ravello’s regime in a very Just Cause fashion – with lots of bullets, bombs, and vehicles.
Those who have played the previous two Just Cause games should feel right at home in Just Cause 3. The gameplay and experience will be similar to the game’s predecessors, albeit with a few additions and tweaks. For instance, Just Cause 3 will feature random events and enhanced enemies, helping to make the game the most immersive and challenging in the series.
While no release date has been officially announced, the trailer does promise gamers will be able to “set the world on fire” later this year. Those who preorder the game will receive the exclusive weaponized vehicle pack, which includes “exclusive luxury vehicles primed for action and fully loaded with the firepower to kick-start a revolution.”
