Loads more stuff on Eidos's Just Cause 2 here, in a preview taken from PSW. Shots here. The text contains news that the game's mission structure has been completely revamped, with the concept of side missions being dumped completely. This presented something of a learning curve, apparently.
"From a design perspective, it was quite a challenge to design the new mission structure since we wanted to get that exactly right," said lead designer Peter Johansson of developer Avalanche Studios. "We wanted to make sure that the game world is filled with things to do and gives you enough freedom to play the missions you choose and approach them in any way you want."
There's no release date for this yet other than "2008".
