Just Cause 4 is barrelling toward release later this year, and now Square Enix has released another new gameplay trailer showcasing more of the expansive world and story for the action title.
Shown off as part of a series of preview trailers, this latest delivery of fresh hype from the developers wants the player to feel engaged with the story of Just Cause 4. Instead of a more linear narrative structure, like in the previous entries in the franchise, Just Cause 4 wants to open up and lay the world at the feet of the player.
The story within the game will be there, and it’s just as cooky as the rest of the game, but it will be broken up into smaller chunks that the player can engage with at their pace. And since players tend to zip through Just Cause games at breakneck pace, it stands to reason that the story will always be there, just in the background of the rest of the action. The story teased in this latest trailer hints at some mysterious ancient civilizations that will likely play into the origins of Solis and the Black Hand.
When combined with the limitless potential for destruction and chaos this sounds like an amazing prospect. I mean really, in a game where you can weaponize tornadoes, I would be shocked if there wasn’t some weird magical alien stuff going on behind the scenes.
If you want to check out more gameplay for Just Cause 4, there’s tons of other gameplay footage and peeks behind-the-scenes for the game. There’s even an awesome trailer that shows tornadoes ripping the landscape apart. You should also look into the biomes that separate the land of Solis into distinct parts. It’s all pretty cool, even if you’re not a fan of the series.
Just Cause 4 will release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on December 4, and can currently be pre-ordered on Amazon. Check out the latest gameplay trailer down below.
