Eidos just sent over these absolutely beautiful screens for Just Cause 2. Those of you who missed out on the first game should remedy that… you can pick it up for just a couple of bucks now, and the fun sandbox game was definitely underlooked among all the other big guns of the genre.
Developed by Avalanche Studios, Just Cause 2 finds Rico Rodriguez returning in an epic open-world adventure set in the diverse tropical playground of Panau in South East Asia, where the aim is to cause chaos and destruction in a way that only Rico knows how! His mission is to destabilize the island and free it from the tyranny of the evil dictator, Baby Panay. Players will tackle missions and objectives in any way they want while exploring the highly-detailed and beautiful island by land, sea or air, performing an insane range of new daredevil stunts and mastering the use of the all new grappling hook and Rico’s trademark parachute.
The parachute was easily the best aspect of the first game, and the one you’d most miss when playing any other open-world game like it. There was just nothing like climbing up to the top of a mountain, jumping off and plummeting to the ground, only to deploy the parachute at the last second. Using a grappling hook you could shoot any car that was driving by you and hook onto it, flying up behind it. Wind yourself in and you’ve just hijacked a car. Wonder what new features the grappling hook might have?
The game’s going to hit this Fall for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. More as we hear it!
