Just Cause 3 announced ahead of 2015 release

Gamers rejoice, Just Cause 3 is official and it’s heading to your consoles next year.

Four years after Just Cause 2 landed, Square Enix has confirmed it is to revive one of its key franchises. Although an exact Just Cause 3 release date is still to be announced, it has been revealed the title will touch down in 2015.

Firmed up details on the next addition to the open-world action/adventure series are still thin on the ground, but the first screen from the title has surfaced as part of GameInformer’s next mag cover.

Announcing the game, Square Enix has stated: “A new playground of chaos and destruction rockets to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Based in a fictional Mediterranean archipelago, Just Cause 3 will see gamers enjoy an expansive open-world setting and be tasked with overthrowing a new, tyrannous leader.

With glorious mounds of grappling hook action promised alongside some serious shooting and parachuting action (at times combined), the game is to be built around the same, much loved elements as its predecessors.

As with the past franchise additions, Just Cause 3 is being developed by Swedish firm Avalanche.

That’s all we know about the game so far. Stay tuned to TrustedReviews for all the latest details on Just Cause 3.
