Gamers are reporting coming across a familiar looking island whilst exploring Just Cause 2. Eidos Interactive have replicated the whole LOST Island for you to explore.
I may have gotten a bit tired of Lost, however, the creation of the island within Just Cause 2....especially considering it is just a small blip on the map, is truly impressive!
Yesterday's episode was the best of the season, and it's as great as episodes like "The Constant". This is by far the coolest Easter Egg I have ever seen.
I cannot believe how incredible of an epic win this is. I hope these guys do a second Lost game!
There is soooooooo much hidden in this game its really fantastic, the map is massive and by that i mean it makes san andreas look small. So much to see and do
Is it a giant sandbox of randomness? I know there's a story but is it like GTA with more fun?
DON'T GO INTO THE OPEN ZONE. Potential spoiler for Alan Wake. Spoiler is in user's name.
Damn... I don't even own a 360 and it pisses me off! Guys do you remember the Heavy Rain spoilers? You didn't like it, did you? So why do you spoil this game? Fanboys are retarded...
I wanna grapple that fat guy to a helicopter just to see if i can lift him!
thats a nice easteregg
More like a sandbox of awesomeness! Seriously, if you ever liked the mercenaries series of games. Or if you just like to get into GTA and explore and wreak havoc...then this should be your new game. It is mostly about creatively destroying just about everything that you see...and watching the carnage unfold. I have sunk 4 hours into the game and really haven't taken any missions. I just like playing with the grapple combinations and the parachuting. At this point, I seriously could care less about the story...I just want to blow more stuff up.
It would be cool if you go to far off the map, the smoke monster comes and takes you away.
@ Mitchel Yup, already interested here too, also conviced by this little plus extra. Too bad it gonna have to wait, I'm low on money now and just got Heavy Rain and God Of War 3 on the brazillian launch last week (I believe GOW3 launch like 2 or 3 days later here) and backlog is just getting bigger, still want MAG and Yakuza 3, also curiuous about FFXIII, WKC and Bayonetta (can't see me renting RPGs through and Bayonetta is nowhere to be found around here - as with most games after some time, stores don't restock since the market is small). January and February are important tax months here (house, car, motorcycle, insurance) and just got a medical emergency in the family... I guess I'll be getting Y3, MAG and JC2 by late April or May.
Well it might have been cool if it remained a secret, but now that it is spoiled it lost it's charm, thanks ps3attitude.com, I'll make sure to avoid you in the future to avoid having anything else spoiled for me.
It was cool walking around the island in Lost: Via Domus, but unfotunately that was about the only thing cool about that game. This looks WAY more fun. Oh, and Alpha-Male, you're right. The Richard episode was fantastic. I'll be a bit sad when the show is all over, as I'll never be able to watch the series again with the same sense of mystery and wonder.
"Eidos Interactive have replicated the whole LOST Island for you to explore." I think they mean Avalanche Studios. Eidos only publishes it in NA.
i thought it was developed by avalanche and eidos and published by SE?
"Published by Square Enix, Inc. Developed by Avalanche Studios." WTF has Eidos to do with it? They are mentioned on the site but I am confused why they are. Could anyone do some research (I am at work)?
Eidos is owned by Square, they are basically the NA/EU publisher branch of Square Enix
It is, Both Eidos and Avalanche Studios developed Just Cause 2.
Eidos was bought by SE a few months ago and SE is using them to publish their games on Europe and the US. Just Cause 2 was getting published by Eidos anyway before the acquisition.
just for doing when they had no reason to is amazing in its self. Guess we know what their favorite show is :)
....just out of fun or because they are inspired by something. It's obvious that the dev. team loves lost that is why they put it in there. If I was working on a game for example it would be a game set in Ancient Rome that's for sure. Also you would be able to see characters like Pullo and Vorenus. Guess what is my favorite show :D
Cause I'm the Black Smoke Monster. Grrrrr.
you are evil!! and you shall neva leave teh island!! :@
i think lost is gay but this is just pure awesome. good sh!t eidos
Lost is pretty epic. I may have to add this to my gamefly Que :)
now i can go get lost!
I didn't know this. Can't wait to go home and explore this island.
i dont even care about lost but having something like this that caters for the fans of the show is awesome. this game needs to get some type of award or something just due to the scale of the game and what all you can do in it
o_0 is there a giant anubis statue?? or his foot??
Thats nothing. I have a replica of Dexter's Killroom in my basement.
TMI violation!!! I won't call the authorities...I'll just stay REALLY far away from your house!!!*LOL
That's it! I am getting this game! There is some cool stuff in this game.
Can you explore inside the hatch & Others Ville ? I want to see the Hatch explode when the numbers are not put in. But they probably did not go into to much detail & Smokie better make an experience
Thats a pretty stupid name wow... def not true anyway who cares?
Wow, nice little treat there.
i stopped watching lost as soon as we reached the point of "were going to move the island" i was pretty much done from that point
That's some dedication.
Cool, can't wait till Friday, it's Thursday day now, so who know, might come in the post today! my PC's going to have some fun!
Sons of Anarchy or GTFO
Lol, where's the smoke monster?
ok Time to explore this island. Now I just need a plane...
What're you a [email protected]? RUMMBMBBMRMRM RMMMBBMMM!! RRRMMBBLEM!! RUMBMMM !! hahahaha Trey Parker and Matt Stone are geniuses. LOST FTW. Ab Aeterno by far, my favorite episode so far of the entire series, next to Through the Looking Glass. Might have to check out this game...to check out..THE ISLAND.
This makes me want to buy this game! lol
I think the source went a little loony with the easter egg. It seems to me after spending over an hour exploring said island that the only actualy LOST reference is the plane crash site with the plane and the SEARCH. The hatch thing is actually one of several bunkers scattered throughout the island, and other parts of the game. I don't think they intended it to be a hatch.
There is even a Bermuda Triangle like area in the game. Hell, come to think of it, I would not be surprised if they put something like Atlantis beneath the ocean somewhere, lol. The size and variety within this game is pretty incredible.
That is so epic..
Sold. Anything with a reference to Lost in it I'll buy.
Where's the Man in Black? =)
Im glad a great game can finally have somethin from a great show in it good job Eidos!!!
