E3: Just Cause: Presentation part 1

E3: Just Cause: Presentation part 1

Except for some not so great screenshots here and there we knew until now next to nothing about Just Cause, the third person shooter from Eidos. So it's with great pleasure that I show you the first part of a long presentation of the game, done with a work-in-progress 360 version. Prepare to be impressed.



Let's recap first. Just Cause let's you play the role of an american special agent, with the mission to bring peace in a country composed of islands. Yes, all by himself. It doesn't seem that incredible, but keep in mind that the country is big, *really* big. Just Cause also uses a non-linear mission system like GTA3, which is good since there are many of them. And the very nice fact is that your character can do some pretty awesome and completely unrealistic things. He's not a super-hero, but some of the stuff he can do is borderline crazy. This is one of our biggest surprise for this E3.
As mentioned before, this is still a very much work-in-progress version requiring a lot of polishing. The pop-in/clipping/shadowing issues will of course be fixed in the final version.
Update: A big "thanks" to Mark of XFERLA.com, who provides us a pretty strong server to host the video. If you have issues to download the file from the USA, this mirror should come in handy !

This game seems to become better and better, but I just hate those ugly Pop-Ups...

it finally seems that developers are knowing what the people want no more crappy games but much better executed and thoughts over games, this is one of them.

This game looks awesome

Looking very nice indeed. Maybe reduse that bloom a little bit.. Did the developers talk anything about a release date ?
Commented on 2006-05-14 13:13:07
This looks really awesome! Throw in the huge island and its even better. I guess some of the bloom comes from being filmed by a cam.
Commented on 2006-05-14 13:33:31
Looks like Boiling Point on the PC but done right!
Commented on 2006-05-14 13:37:50

Very impressed!

any word on a release date?
Commented on 2006-05-14 15:21:33
Crackdown + Just Cause for your annual GTA-mayhem needs. Saint's Row looks like fluffy monkeybutt. "We have hoes, and pimps, and hoes...and pimps with canes!" Screw that shit, I wanna kick cars and basejump from moving vehicles.
Commented on 2006-05-14 15:32:38
Looks good, but its from Eidos, so, yeah...
Commented on 2006-05-14 16:20:02
as the demonstrator says this gen is all about massive worlds and levels....
can´t wait for this game and all the others like halo3.
Commented on 2006-05-14 16:24:18
Wow, finally watched this all the way through thinking I had seen this on another site but this is WAY better than it looked before. The grappling hook/parachute combo looks insanely fun and the size of that map is crazy aswell.

The developer is Avalanche Studios (not to be confused with the awful Avalanche Software).

Release date: September.

And no, it's not my camera: the game is very bloomy and color saturated.
Commented on 2006-05-14 17:22:42

About the game


What's up?
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (4 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (4 Hours ago)
