Just Cause 4
PC, PS4, Xbox One
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.
