Last year Square Enix and and Avalanche Studios announced that the two companies were working on a new Just Cause installment for next-generation consoles and PC, but we haven’t heard much about the title until this morning, when Square Enix released the first trailer.
Called ‘Firestarter’ the trailer doesn’t offer a look at the gameplay, or reveal much about the story, it’s more of a reminder that the game still exists and is still going to release. JUST CAUSE 3 is still on track to release in 2015 according to Square Enix, and it will be made available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
At the time of the announcement in 2014, Christofer Sundberg, founder and Chief Creative Officer at Avalanche Studios stated, “We’ve been waiting for this moment ever since Just Cause 2 was released.” He then added, “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.”
More information on the game, a gameplay trailer, and a more exact release date is expected to be announced over the coming months. There will most likely be a season-pass, and collector’s edition to be detailed as well. As of right now the game is scheduled to release during “Holiday 2015,” on the platforms mentioned above. Since E3 2015 will hit before the holiday rush, you can probably expect a lot of information on the game to be released at that time. You can also expect to hear about Square Enix’s other not-released, already announced title (the ‘Tomb Raider’ follow-up) when the gaming event takes place in the summer of 2015.
