Just Cause 3 is big and dumb in just about the best way possible. Rico Rodriguez is never more than milliseconds aware from the warm glow of an explosion, popping off dynamite, blitzing planes with a rocket launcher and generally ensuring Medici becomes another Mediterranean island with serious financial problems.
The latest trailer for Just Cause 3 is designed to show us just how all this OTT gameplay flows into the missions. Apparently anyway. Square Enix reckon Rico’s ‘protecting’ the town of Costa Del Port and attempting to break his friend Mario out of prison. I don’t know what Square Enix think protection is, but in Rico’s world it involves wanton destruction and loss of lives. I reckon he's got a check-list of stuff in his back pocket, and he's working his way down it trying to explode it all. Churches, bridges, hospitals, petrol stations, planes, helicopters. You name it, Rico's broken it into several thousand pieces, before wingsuiting gloriously out of there. [More]
