X06: Just Cause Trailer

An undercover agent is sent in to overthrow a corrupt government on an idyllic tropical island, by using whatever means necessary. As you parachute down through the clouds, high above the islands of San Esperito and admire the archipelago view, begins.

Pushing the capabilities of any console, Just Cause is set on an unprecedented scale in terms of missions and size. The massive world will take the average gamer over 40 minutes to cross, from one end of the island to the other, and that's without being distracted by one of the 300+ missions you could choose to accept along the way.

The main character is undercover? Hah, parachuting from a helicopter you just blew up might blow your cover. I don't think he's really undercover.

I dunno man, 4 kinda sucked compared to 3 personally, i do wish they would take on a Mercenaries sequel though

Wretchedstain770d ago

Not sure if the IP still exists anywhere, or who owns it now, but yes, that would be an awesome idea. Pandemic studios did a few good games before they got closed by EA in 2009. The Saboteur is still a go to game of mine. Mercenaries 3: No Limits was one of the cancelled games we all missed out on.

slayernz770d ago

yeah my thoughts as well, loved #3 but #4 was pretty meh just nowhere near as much fun, felt like a grind

Minute Man 721769d ago (Edited 769d ago )

I'm loving #4 right now

LordoftheCritics771d ago

I think the game needs a reboot.

Same save the island situation since the first. Each iteration feels mostly a tech upgrade.

porkChop770d ago

They're busy working on Contraband, a new IP. I like Just Cause but they don't need to pump them out one after another. Mad Max showed they're far more than a one trick pony, so just let them do what they want to do.

isarai770d ago

They have two studios, so i hope the other is working on something cool. Hell i'd be psyched for a mad max sequel honestly.

Wherever it is, I just hope it isn't cross gen

Just Cause Developer's Huge Cancelled Open-World Game

In an interview with Wassup Conversations, Mikael Säker writer of such games like Battlefield 3,4,1 and The Darkness, talks about a cancelled steampunk open-world game in an alternative history of the 1950s of London. The game was in production at Avalanche Studios, the developer behind Just Cause games but it was cancelled due to economical crisis of the studio at the time. More about the game in the link.

"That was not fun. I think they had to let the half of the studio go, over a night because of the economic collapse. The publisher cancelled all their games except one, and it was a big publisher. But had been working on this awesome open-world game set in an alternative reality version of 1950s. It was insane! We had a huge this huge version of London that looked spectacular. We didn't have skyscrapers, but we had, like inverted heights, so the city grew downwards, to the ground. You could fly ziplines, airships, planes and jump down to these really, really deep holes in the middle of the city. So it was visually, and world-building wise spectacular and It had some really great gameplay ideas." Unfortunately, the game was cancelled because it needed another two years of development during those hard times of Avalanche.
Why do we miss out on such gems?

"steampunk open-world game in an alternative history of the 1950s of London."

That sounds awesome, and of course it's cancelled. *Sigh*

Looks interesting. Microsoft or Sony could help (€€€) with this game's development.

BTW, wouldn't mind a Mad Max sequel from Avalanche.

moriarty18891127d ago

agreed. Really liked Mad Max.

Minute Man 7211127d ago

The story for Mad Max was crazy and sad

CrimsonWing691127d ago

It sucks when games get canceled especially if they’re bringing something unique to the market.

seanpitt231127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

Yeah they scrapped this and then made just cause 4 and probably 5 which are getting worse and a step back in every new entry that releases.. just cause 4 was an abomination the only good game this company has made in recent times is mad max and just cause 2 was pretty good for the time
