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.

The following videos are ready to be viewed now:

Apex Power

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.

Redefining Rico

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.

We’ve taken everything that players loved from our previous games and with brand new features, enhanced physics and core gameplay improvements, we’ve created the most ambitious Just Cause experience to date,” said Francesco Antolini, Game Director at Avalanche Studios. “The introduction of Extreme Weather is a complete game changer – players will not have seen anything like this in a videogame. We have created fully physicalized tornadoes, blizzards, sandstorms and torrential downpours which affect gameplay in a very real way. All of this is now possible thanks to our brand new Apex engine.
