Release on 4th December.

It’s looking as much fun as ever, and will appeal to my “break stuff/blow stuff up” alter-ego.

I played Just Cause 3 more than I thought i would, and while it got a bit samey, you can create absolute carnage with ease.

Looks like you can now attach helium balloons (nod to Metal Gear Solid) and rocket boosters to stuff now too, so that’ll keep me kept amused.

Im looking forward ro the release, though I thought JC3 was a bit of a let down after JC2, which I loved.

Hopefully, JC4 will be less samey than its predecessor.

As you guys said, I enjoyed JC3 but after a while it did get very samey, to the point that I stopped liberating areas once I reached the main island and just dicked about and cause absolute mayhem!

Really hope they sort out the physics quite a bit as a lot of things didn't feel right in JC3 either, mainly with vehicle controls with flying not being very intuitive.

Reading a few reviews and watching a few videos the general consensus seems to be that it's more of the same and not much of a step up from JC3.

Actually, watching videos you could be forgiven for thinking you were actually watching old JC3 game play, it really does look like more of a re-hash of an older game rather than something completely new. A lot of the vehicles look very much the same, as do buildings, landscape and pretty much everything really. Even the physics looks likes its been untouched and the UI looks even more confusing than in previous games!

Think It'll be one to get when it drops below £20 for me which going by reviews and by what's happened to Fallout 76, probably wont be long.

Am really looking forward to this. Just cause is fun!

I never understand all the fuss about realism in games... I'd much rather grapple a chopper whilst flying along in my wing suit!

Just wish I didn't put it on my Christmas list now... Ages to wait!

Id probably suggest you concentrate on looking where you are going...

Just Cause 3 is one of those games that you can pick up and have some brain-out fun. Consequently I may have completed it to 100% on more than one occasion...

If Just Cause 4 is more of the same, well that will do me. The boy wants it for Christmas so I'll have to wait a few weeks.

I cant help but wonder why they didn't aim to release this with a Battle Royale mode. I've gone back to playing a bit of JC3 and everything about the game would be perfect for it with the wing suit and parachute bringing some proper fast paced gameplay. They've even developed a weather system that'd be suited to the whole closing storm thing that you get in such games.

Surely it wouldn't be that hard to develop? You might have to drop players into restricted areas of the map for each game for load purposes it'd still be good.

Avalanche have said there wont be a battle royale mode but surely they've got to consider it, they've pretty much developed the perfect game for it already!

Please no more fking battle royale bullst infesting game stores, just go play one of the bazillion clones available already! (I might not like them, can you tell?) laugh

Back to JC4, the steam reviews are horrible which is a shame. The previous one had quite a buggy release but it seems odd they are making the same mistake again! Also removing grenades/explosives what were they thinking?!?

They have released a statement saying they are working on it and listening to feedback, hard to not be cynical but it seems like they'd released it unfinished... maybe just been tainted by a number of releases this year in the same state!

The problem with JC4 doesn’t seem to be that it’s buggy, more that it just isn’t much different to JC3. Its almost as if they’ve just refreshed the map a bit, given you some balloons to play with and added a bit of weather.

As for a Battle Royale mode, you don’t have to play it and I just think the game really suits it!

Fair point on the BR mode but I don't like them as they usually bundle it up into always online & open world which are serious risks to the fun of a game like this. Farcry 5 managed to get it right imo with story co-op and their BR is a standalone?

More of the review list a fair number of game crashes, has anyone got this one the PS/Xbox to compare if it's across the board?
