EDGE - - HYPE - Pub­lisher Square Enix De­vel­oper Avalanche Soft­ware For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One Ori­gin US Re­lease 2015

We thought Avalanche’s New York stu­dio had been a bit on the quiet side. Opened in 2011, it’s taken three years to show its cards, but what a hand it is. Just­Cause3 trans­plants Rico Ro­driguez from South­east Asia to the turquoise wa­ters and cerulean skies of the Mediter­ranean, re­fines and ex­pands his toy­set, and gives Avalanche the chance to work its magic on cur­rent-gen hard­ware. Sadly, there’ll be no equiv­a­lent – at least at launch – of the fan-made mul­ti­player mod that gave JustCause2 such longevity. Look on the bright side, though: at least it’s not free-to-play, as the ru­mour mill had long sug­gested it would be.
