Just Cause 3 is the featured title of the next issue of Gamer Informer.
According to the magazine, it was able to play “several hours of the game,” which is a fictional, open-world version of the Mediterranean which is ruled by dictator.
The game will include updated parachute physics and grappling and players will also be able to don a wingsuit.
“We’ve been waiting for this moment ever since Just Cause 2 was released, said Christofer Sundberg, founder and CCO at Avalanche Studios in a press release.
“This is the culmination of a decade’s worth of open-world evolution and innovation. In Just Cause 3, we’ve sent Rico to a beautiful Mediterranean archipelago. He is of course bringing his Grapple and Parachute, both with game-changing upgrades, as well as the brand new Wingsuit.
“Just Cause 3 truly represents the next generation of chaotic sandbox fun, and we can’t wait to show you more next year.”
Publisher Square Enix also reiterated the game is a “full retail” release and not a free-to-play tile, as leaked images of the game suggested last week.
Game Informer got its hands on the game as you can see in the video below.
The magazine will land in mailboxes within the next two weeks, and later today it will be made available for digital subscribers, so we expect NeoGAF and other sites to have mined it for information.
A domain for the game was registered back in April 2014, with Square stating at the time the registration was “routine IP management activity,” and nothing else.
As far back as 2013, Avalanche Studios said the third installment in the series was possible, but was too early to talk about at the time despite Avalanche’s developer diary featuring the studio conducting environment research off the coast of Costa Rica.
Even earlier in 2013, it was rumored the studio was working on Just Cause 3 for PC and “next-gen” at the time, which was followed up with Avalanche teasing an image for the game which has now been confirmed as being from Just Cause 3. See? I didn’t have to eat my socks after all.
Mad Max, another title from Avalanche in the works for 2015, is also an open-world title.
Just Cause 3 is out in 2015 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
