If you’ve watched the trailer for Just Cause 2, you have to be a little bit excited. The grapple-shoot-fly-drive-’em-up is being developed by Avalanche again and published by Square Enix Europe; although it will still carry the Eidos name, too.
Square Enix Europe have revealed the official UK release date for Just Cause 2 as March 26th 2010. The game will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
The game is set on a tropical island in South East Asia with over 1000Km2 to explore. If you are unsure of what Just Cause is or what Just Cause allows you to do, then here’s the marketing spiel as said by Square Enix London Studios’ general manager Lee Singleton:
Just Cause 2 offers the freedom to explore and tackle the world in any way you choose…The grapple and the parachute mechanic will change the way you play open-world games, allowing players to be in the air in seconds, tackling missions from above and using the aerial advantage. If you prefer to stay on solid ground, the choices offered by the grapple are limited only by your imagination.
