While I haven’t yet had the chance to play Just Cause 4, I did sit down with Square Enix at E3 back in June and watched a good 45 minutes of gameplay and ever since Just Cause 4 has been on my list of most anticipated games to play.
While I can’t yet smack a review score on the game, I can say that Just Cause 4 has had some of the best marketing for any game released in 2018. From the recent “live action” trailer to the ultra-wide 4K panoramic trailer, Square Enix has done just about everything right in promoting Rico’s latest adventure. And with just a few days left before the game is released, they’ve now outdone themselves with a series of stylized posters inspired by classic action films of decades past.
Rico Rodriguez is the all-time action hero, and JUST CAUSE 4 mixes in everything fans love about action movies: Extreme stunts, over-the-top action, all presented with larger-than-life style and attitude. The “Rico Through The Eras” gallery showcases a collection of fun movie trailer-style videos and artwork inspired by classic action films of the 1960s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s.
Set in the fictional South American world of Solis, JUST CAUSE 4 takes the series’ incredible destruction and unique physics to a whole new level with the introduction of tornadoes and other extreme weather events. Just Cause 4 has four distinct biomes: Rainforest, Grasslands, Alpine & Desert. With each biome offering its own individual, fully simulated weather event, players will have a truly unique experience as they traverse this deep, diverse world.
