Following the announcement of Just Cause 4 at E3 this year, we’ve seen a lot of excitement generated around the game. In order to provide more information on what to expect from the game, the developers have released the first five videos in their “Just Cause 4 Making Of” series*. Straight from the mouths of the developers, this series delivers key, new information as well as detailing all of the most impressive new features in Just Cause 4.
Named upon the concept of an Apex being a pinnacle or peak, the team at Avalanche discuss the new Apex Engine, built from the ground up to enable them to create the most dynamic instalment of the Just Cause series with best-in class features.
Force of Nature
The team explain how Rico, a force of nature in his own right, will work through and with the elements of tornadoes, sandstorms and torrential rain, and detail the simulation systems necessary for allowing extreme weather the perfect combination of realism and fun.
The Grapple Hook
The embodiment of Rico is the grappling hook, the ultimate sandbox tool. Not only can it still achieve the same explosive destruction that players had in previous titles, it also now has new abilities, new options, and is fully customisable.
A best in class sandbox with unrivalled physics would be nothing without a hero to match. A new challenge awaits for Rico, he has left the agency and gone rogue. He returns in Just Cause 4 with more depth and complexity, but is no less the action hero fans have come to expect.
The World of Solis
The team explains how they created 500 years of backstory to inspire the world design and narrative, from colonial style original settlers to contemporary buildings.
* The Making of Series originally aired as part of the Just Cause E3 Blowout Livestream at E3.
