Explosive Just Cause 3 trailer teases PS4’s insane open-world action game

Square Enix has released another high-octane trailer for its upcoming open-world action sequel, Just Cause 3.

This latest trailer isn’t in-game footage unlike previous videos, and instead is comprised of all CGI. Not that it matters, as it looks absolutely insane and gives you a firm idea of what to expect from the sequel when it arrives on December 1. Check it out below.

The sequel takes place on the fictional island of Medici, with players controlling protagonist Rico Rodriguez as he returns home after leaving The Agency. However, he soon discovers the island is in fact under the control of General Di Ravello, a brutal dictator hell bent on world domination. Many of the signature features of the game’s predecessor, 2010’s Just Cause 2, will return for the sequel, including the grappling hook and parachute, although their functionality has been slightly improved this time around.

New to the table this time includes a wingsuit, which allows Rodriguez to navigate the game world more easily by gliding across the landscape. As ever, destruction will be a main theme, with players able to wreak havoc across the island as they see fit with an arsenal of powerful weaponry, including shotguns, RPGs, machine-guns and more. Furthermore, Just Cause 3 will include an assortment of vehicles such as planes, exotic cars, ships and more. Avalanche Studios opted to eschew any traditional multiplayer and co-op elements for Just Cause 3 however, wishing instead to focus all of its manpower on building a comprehensive single-player offering.

Like many third-party titles, the PS4 version of Just Cause 3 runs at a higher resolution than its Xbox One counterpart. Developer Avalanche Studios has previously said that the developer toyed with the idea of a multiplayer mode for the game, and had positive things to say about PS4’s Share Button.
