I don’t think I’ve ever played a game as polarising as Just Cause 1 and 2. On the one hand, the driving was atrocious, the characters were about as well developed as a McDonalds egg and the voice acting inside the game was terrible enough to summon dread Dormammu from his slumber in the dark dimensions.Then again, there’s no other game on the market that allowed you to crash fighter jets into soldiers or do battle with Kim Jong Il’s secret ninja bodyguard army. So yeah, I really want a Just Cause 3.
Xbox Underground claims to have screenshots from a debug version of the game on Xbox One. See for yourself, and pinch some salt for good luck as you descend further into the images:
I’m genuinely hoping that these images are real. The last time I heard anything about Just Cause 3, was way back at the end of February last year. I’m honestly aching for a sequel, as Just Cause 2 was one of the finest guilty pleasure games that I’d ever experienced on the previous console generation. Sure, it massive with no real sense of civilization thrown into the vast mountain ranges and deserts, but show me another game that allowed me to attach a grappling hook to a speeding boat before linking it to a poor soldier and then blasting said boat out of the sky while that hapless goon was still attached to it.
You can’t, can you? And that’s because Just Cause 2 was just wonderfully ridiculous. And we need more shooters along those lines these days. Hopefully, a silly sequel can improve on the shortcomings of the previous game. And give me a multiplayer mode that allows me to attach Geoff’s in-game character to a helicopter and scrape him across a mountain or two.
