Weaponised weath er
The game’s baddie, Oscar Espinosa, has devised ways of harnessing lightning, tornadoes and sandstorms, in order to keep control of the mountainous, low-lying and desert regions of Solis – and he plans to employ them offensively elsewhere via his Project Illapa mega-weapon. But protagonists Mira and Rico progressively acquire that technology, enabling you to wield them at certain areas of the map. Lightning is dead handy when you have a load of enemy choppers converging on you, for example – although Rico also gets hit. And even Rico is liable to perish if he wingsuits into a tornado, although Avalanche Studios’ realistically modelled wind-physics are a marvel which you
must check out.
