Just Cause 3’s explosive new gameplay footage has a lot to say about what Avalanche has packed into its latest open-world action thriller.

Just Cause 3 got its first gameplay trailer today, and it was smashing.

It was a pretty non-stop affair, and doubt I was alone in consuming it, burbling “brilliant”, and then moving on with my day. But developer Avalanche Studios would like to point out that the trailer communicated a number of new features appearing in the series for the first time. These features are:

  • wingsuit
  • multi-tether
  • massive explosions
  • cascading destruction
  • the “Reeled Hang”
  • destructible vegetation
  • monorail trains
  • serious miniguns
  • bridge destruction
  • stunting

There’s a blog post on the Just Cause website with more details of all of these, which I have resisted the urge to rewrite in its entirety in even more excited tones. That “massive explosions” one actually caused me to gibber a little bit when I read it. I am part of the problem, yes.

Just Cause 3 is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One at the end of the year.
