Avalanche Studios and Square Enix have announced Just Cause 3, the highly anticipated sequel following the 2010 hit Just Cause 2. The game will be following Rico once more, and will be releasing on the PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2015.
“We’ve been waiting for this moment ever since Just Cause 2 was released” Christofer Sundberg, founder and Chief Creative Officer of Avalanche Studios said. “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.”
After a bit of confusion over the game being possibly free-to-play, the developers have clarified that isn’t the case, and the game will not feature in-game micro transactions either.
The game is being featured on Game Informer’s December Issue, and the issue features a huge 12 page interview with the developers. Here’s a quick coverage trailer on what’s been going on at Avalanche and where three years of work have gone.
Just Cause 3 is slated for a 2015 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
