Just Cause 4 storms in with vortex-filled announcement trailer | E3 2018

Just Cause 4 was officially unveiled today, ahead of Square Enix's E3 2018 conference. It was Microsoft instead that had the honor of taking care of the reveal, showing off the return of the open-world action title as it settles down on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. 

The latest entry in the series will thrust players once more into the shoes of series mainstay Rico Rodriguez as he squares off against a South American private army known as "The Black Hand."

You'll once again hit the skies with Rico's signature wingsuit as you explore the South American country of Solis. There will also be helicopters, tanks, boats, and various other useful vehicles that Rico can hop in and out of as he crashes his way through the new open world. In addition, there are new and exciting weather effects to check out throughout the world—the trailer showcased an enormous twister.

The Just Cause series was created by Avalanche Studios, who's once again taking the helm with the latest installment. Typically, the titles take place in tropical environments with a focus on open worlds with destructive environments. The series began in 2006 with Just Cause, and the third game Just Cause 3 debuted three years ago. Players explored the fictional Mediterranean island of Medici, which was ruled by the heinous dictator Di Ravello. 

You'll be able to pick up Just Cause 4 this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC when it debuts on Dec. 4, 2018.
