and developer Avalanche Software
have announced Rico's next adventure cleverly titled Just Cause 3
. The developers have come out of the gate stating this game is not a Free-to-Play game and it will not harbor micro-transactions. The Avalanche stated this is because there were rumors going around that this next installation would incorporate those models. Thankfully, that's not the case.
The familiar elements from the previous games will return such as grappling, but along with that a new wingsuit has found its way into the game as well. This new wingsuit will allow Rico to reach incredible speeds while free falling, though what other creative ways to use it will only be uncovered in time. The game encompasses a 400 square mile map and will be filled with many different things for Rico to do. This includes destroying bases to open up fast travel points, destroying propaganda billboards, statues, and loudspeakers. These are just a few of the many things that Just Cause 3
will have to offer gamers.
Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Avalanche Studios, Christofer Sundberg, had this to say about Just Cause 3
We’ve been waiting for this moment ever since Just Cause 2 was released. This is the culmination of a decade’s worth of open-world evolution and innovation. In JUST CAUSE 3, we’ve sent Rico to a beautiful Mediterranean archipelago. He is of course bringing his Grapple and Parachute, both with game-changing upgrades, as well as the brand new Wingsuit. JUST CAUSE 3 truly represents the next generation of chaotic sandbox fun, and we can’t wait to show you more next year.

Just Cause 3
will skydive to stores sometime in 2015.
