The first gameplay video for Just Cause 3 has been published today on YouTube. The trailer shows explosive footage from the game as Rico Rodriguez inflicts chaos on the regime of ruthless dictator General Di Ravello.

Just Cause 3's premiere gameplay video promises "No cut scenes, no scripts, no staging. Just gameplay and great camera angles." The video starts by showing Rico skydiving and landing on the cockpit of a fighter jet in mid-flight. There he unseats the General Di Ravello airman to take control of the plane. Next we see a variety of scenes from the lush looking Mediterranean island of Medici, which is unfortunately blemished by billboards, statues and the military machinery of the General. Your job will be to dismantle this regime without prejudice, but with thousands of bullets, lots of explosives and (armed) vehicles.

The Just Cause games have become renowned for their open world destructibility and this third in the series looks set to add to that reputation with dazzling detailed graphics. Adding to the enhanced graphics, we have already been informed that physics elements like parachuting, wing-suiting and grapple hook swinging are to be vastly improved. Even without DLC the game world encompasses a 400 mile square map. The first teaser trailer was launched in February and called 'Firestarter'.

Just Cause 3 is scheduled for a "Holiday 2015," release. It will not be "a huge leap from Just Cause 2, but it's more fun, more polished, and more over-the-top in almost every respect," say developers Avalanche Studios. Owners of PCs, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles will all be able to enjoy the game. Those interested are invited to pre-order now to secure an "exclusive weaponised vehicle pack".

I was smiling throughout the whole thing until it said “preorder now to recieve blah blah bs…” :( I hate feeling like I'm getting an incomplete game just because I'm not preordering it on pure faith that it'll be good, especially when trust for the industry is extremely low these days.

Hopefully it'll be at least as fun as the last one though!
Looks somewhat similar to GTA5 but with more explosions and jumping.
Looks interesting. So bored with most modern games now but this has piqued my interest.

You have set your expectations quite low then. :P Seriously though, I would want it to be better then the previous version, both in terms of gameplay and eye candy. But this is a game that I have been looking forward to since I completed the story in JC2, I haven't even managed to get to 100% completion with game, but have at least completed the main campaign and it's a game I go back to from time to time just so I can free roam around the landscape.

I didn't even play either of the first ones that much actually :P They seemed pretty cool, but I just didn't feel like playing them much for some reason. But I saw people having a lot of fun playing the second one, especially with that crazy multiplayer mod! It kinda got me interested in the third one!
