Just Cause 4 is like Breath of the Wild on crack

Gaming Hardware
[NOISE] Its been three years since Just Cause three wings suited its way into our hearts. And now gaming's biggest, craziest, explodiest franchise is back with Just Cause 4. Rico Rodriguez returns at what looks to be another ridiculously big loud creative installment in the Just Cause franchise. And this time the story gets personal. Rico has been on a quest to uncover kind of the mystery behind his father's death. Searching out that mystery has led him to the island of Solis in South America where he believes his father's death is tied to some pretty strange happenings that are happening on that island. Those strange happenings in part are extreme weather events A tropical storm, a sandstorm. There's even a persistent tornado occurring on the island. The game's Apex engine was designed for mayhem and these weather patterns could help or hinder Rico's progress when he encounters them. All that depends on you. Each of those extreme weather kinda moments Changes the game play for the player because the tactics you are going to use in those environments are going to be different. A good example of this is in the sand storm where because of low visibility and the strong wind. Often you now in previous games you get into the parachute and get out and that is how you kind of attack players Well the wind's gonna blow you away and the visibility is going to be poor so you really want to stay on the ground and use your weapons instead. And so we're kind of changing up what the kind of best tactics are in that scenario which kind of gives it a lot of variety.>>My preview proved to still retain all the charm of previeous Just Cause games. It's a giant sandbox with a lot of really delightful toys to play with as you progress and unlock new ability. There were some little hiccups with the AI here and there, but overall, the demo was solid. Rico's grappling hook loadouts this time around are bananas. There are tons of combinations, and ways to utilize the hook, and the devs are already looking forward to seeing how creative the fan base can get. We kind of enrichened, added Deepen the tool set that we have given the players. And they've put some big elements, like the extreme weather in the game. And we're just really excited to see what people do with them. And I think that it is one of those things that you see these things in combination rather than it's just this one feature. If you've never touched a Just Cause game before, I wouldn't worry. The preview made it obvious that anyone could jump on board and enjoy blowing up stuff without needing three games' worth of back story. It's meant to be the kind of game you keep coming back to to test your biggest, dumbest ideas. And that sort of freedom sets it apart from a lot of other blockbuster games we've seen this year. I think you look at it and you see the guy with the gun and the South American nation. And you kind of think you have what it is. But when you see it in motion, when you see five minutes of play, no, you didn't really have any idea, right? Once you're wing suiting into a tornado, and chasing a tank that's still shooting at you, because why not, right? That kind of thing is just something you don't see. In I don't think any other game. Yeah. Just Cause 4 wing suit's it's way to PS4, Xbox One and PC on December 4th 2018 [BLANK_AUDIO].
