Created by Avalanche Studios; Just Cause is an action-adventure video game series. The series includes; Just Cause, Just Cause 2, and Just Cause 3, with Just Cause 4 being announced at E3 2018. Just Cause 4 trailer has just been released and it says a lot about the plot.
It provides a preview of what the game’s story will look like. The game takes place after the events of Just Cause 3 where Rico travels to Solís to discover the truth about the circumstances of his father’s death.
Solís is the homeland of the Black Hand. They rule Solís with a very militaristic regime. The Black Hand has also become an even more powerful enemy as they have obtained advanced weather-manipulation technology from the eDEN Corporation and continued to develop it themselves.
Having arrived at Solís, Rico will start his own rebellion, called The Army of Chaos, to overthrow the Black Hand rule. The Black Hand in Just Cause 4 itself is ruled by Gabriela Morales, who believes herself to be similar to Rico and that Rico is dangerous because of their similarity.
It has also been explained in the Just Cause 4 trailer that the storyline is now more broken up and less dependent on missions. The player is no longer expected to get all mission/story information from cut-scenes. Instead, the player learns a lot of the story information from exploring the environment and piecing the information together.
The trailer also adds information that if players preorder the more expensive editions of the game they get to play it a whole 24 hours before everyone else. That’s a great news for its fans.
