Avalanche has set out to build its biggest and most expressive creative sandbox ever. For Rico to survive such a dangerous and destructive locale, the studio decided to reconfigure some of the character’s core tools.
The grapple has been overhauled and can be fully customised, with the increase in tethers and functionality bringing a newfound depth to the system – perfect for combos with airlifters and boosters – making it a wonderfully powerful and creative tool.
Solis, meanwhile, is the deadliest country Just Cause has ever thrown us into, and that means we’ll need a few new tricks up our sleeve to survive the South American hotspot. Fortunately, Rico has a suite of new tools to help him beat the spikes of extreme weather and more intelligent enemy forces.
