The Just Cause games are all about giving players a big and beautiful open world map to explore and enjoy…and absolutely annihilate if they so choose. They’re basically the ultimate games for fans of crazy over-the-top action movies. Just Cause 2 was so big and so open to letting players do pretty much whatever they wanted to—both inside the game world and with the actual game itself through modding—that a bunch of people are still playing it to this very day five years after it was released.
So when it came to making Just Cause 3, which was officially announced back in November of 2014, you knew developer Avalanche Studios was going to go so much bigger. The game was at E3 2015, where a new gameplay trailer was shared along with a lengthy gameplay demo. The videos showcase the huge open world the game is set in, the various vehicles and toys you have to play with, and the symphony of destruction you can compose with them. It’s enough to make Michael Bay weep with joy. And Michael Bay does NOT weep. At best, he maybe just grunts a little.
