Just Cause 3 launch trailer gets us hyped for PS4’s most manic shooter yet

Avalanche Studios has unleashed the official launch trailer for its upcoming open-world PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One sequel, Just Cause 3.

Check it out below. Just Cause 3 is due out tomorrow, December 1, and weighs in at approximately 35.9GB on the PS4. Players will be required to download a day-one patch for the game upon booting it up. Those of you who want to get an idea of how vast the game world is should have a gander at the leaked map screen.

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.
