Pretty much every major game of 2018 is now on store shelves, with one or two exceptions. Just Cause 4 is one of these final holdouts, penciled in for a December 4th launch. December releases are notoriously dangerous, coming as they do in the footsteps of dozens of major releases, Black Friday shopping, and before the imminent holiday sales.
Square Enix is keen to remind us Just Cause 4 exists though, and the new Deep Dive trailer provides just about all the information you could hope for in regards to Rico Rodriguez’s physics-based mayhem.
While much of Just Cause 4 looks to be business as usual for the JC series, JC4 does feature four distinct biomes for more varied environments, as well as the upgraded Apex game engine that allows for dramatic weather effects. Wind now actually has a physical impact in the world, such as blowing debris across the battlefield or even a tornado tearing up entire merc bases.
Just Cause 4 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 4th.
