Following Just Cause 4‘s E3 reveal on Microsoft’s stage, publisher Square Enix went deeper into the action game’s features and mechanics during its own E3 presentation.
In a gameplay breakdown video, fans learn that Just Cause 4 will have players traveling to the fictional South American country of Solis, which looks to host a much wider variety of environments than Just Cause 3‘s Mediterranean setting. The region is under attack from the Black Hand shadow organization and its vicious leader, Gabriella. If this wasn’t bad enough for the civilians living there, the country is simultaneously under siege from crazy natural disasters like tornadoes, sand storms, blizzards, and more.
These storms will give players new opportunities to enjoy the game’s enhanced physics, which can be taken advantage of using protagonist Rico’s returning grappling hook. The hook is now customizable and can tether more objects than ever before, which works nicely with the sequel’s returning booster rocket gadgets and new attachable airlift balloons.
Just Cause 4 is slated to launch December 4th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
