De­vel­oper Avalanche Stu­dios Pub­lisher Square Enix For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One Ori­gin Swe­den Re­lease De­cem­ber 4

The hype train has barely left the sta­tion for Avalanche’s lat­est cel­e­bra­tion of phys­i­cally based open-world ex­plo­sions. That’s un­der­stand­able, per­haps, given pub­lisher Square Enix’s busy re­lease slate – plas­ter­ing Lara Croft’s fiz­zog on Lon­don buses and fizzy-drink bot­tles doesn’t come cheap or easy, and in ret­ro­spect those re­sources were prob­a­bly bet­ter spent else­where. De­tails are still weirdly scant, but this al­ready looks great. A re­cent mar­ket­ing beat fo­cused on the story, ar­guably the least im­por­tant part of the game. We just want to make Cather­ine wheels out of ship­ping con­tain­ers, and fire RPG rounds into tor­na­does.
