Here’s a look at the Just Cause 3 – Choose your own Chaos gameplay trailer that had us giggling with glee during E3.
Just Cause is an interesting series. Open-world, sandbox, physics… these are words we hear all the time in press releases and pitches for new titles. It’s not often that all of these elements are combined in such a polished fashion as they are in Just Cause.
And now Just Cause 3 is on the way, scheduled for release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on December 1 2015.
Daniel saw the Just Cause 3 video Square Enix have just released at E3 a few weeks ago and said it was “good fun” which kind of succinctly encapsulates the point of Just Cause. Yes, you’re trying to destabilise a vicious despotic regime because, well, reasons, but more importantly, you get to have a lot of fun destroying big, expensive-looking stuff to do it.
Just Cause 3 is no different, as you can see for yourselves:
In the video – with a commentary from Roland Lesterlin, Game Director at Avalanche Studios New York – we’re talked through an array of Rico’s new abilities and toys, including a wing-suit, improved grapple, mutli-point tethers, hydra missiles and more.
The driving is improved. The physics are better. Things blow up more. The things you can blow up are bigger and more impressive. They’re even alluding to what could compete with GTA V’s movie mode for building your own action-movie sequences…
Just Cause 3 – Choose your own Chaos? More like Just Cause 3 – Advanced dicking about and wrecking as much shit as possible Simulator – and we love it!
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
