Just Cause 2 Details RevealedNew details have emerged about fresh-faced Swedish developer Avalanches Just Cause 2, the follow-up to the well-received sandbox game Just Cause.
In an interview with PSW magazine, the games lead designer Peter Johansson stated: "We identified the key areas we wanted to improve for Just Cause 2. We wanted to make better use of our huge game world, enhance the stunts, improve the combat and reward exploration more." Whats more, the originals setting on the island San Esperitio has been ditched in favour of a tropical paradise in South East Asia, but retains its charismatic lead Rico Rodriguez.
Of particular interest is the bold move to ditch the peripheral activities that often form the backbone of the majority of sandbox games, with Johansson claiming: "Weve ditched the concept of side-missions." A brave move, but maybe one thats necessary to differentiate the title in an already over-crowded market.
The game will be fully next-gen - unlike the last entry which straddled the generational divide - and is expected on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
