Open world games are commonplace now, but few do justice to the idea of ‘go anywhere, do anything’ quite like the Just Cause series. And number four is shaping up to be the best yet. This issue we visit Avalanche Studios in New York to play its new game, and discover why the weather matters in this war-torn sandbox. Read Oscar’s hands-on, starting on page 50.
There are more first-hand impressions this issue too, as we go hands-on with Fallout 76 and discover why more people isn’t a bad thing (p36). We play Battlefield V ahead of release (p32), experience Devil May Cry V’s new Dante gameplay (p6), and see why Days Gone’s Freakers will test your endurance as much as your nerves (p12).
Back to open worlds, and one of the year’s best is already here: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is reviewed on page 72.
