Avalanche Studios and Square Enix have released a new trailer for their upcoming open world adventure, Just Cause 3, that details the story that’s coming with the 400 square miles of creative destruction, incredible action and explosions. You can view the impressive new trailer below.

Just Cause 3 features 400 square miles of potential destructability

Just Cause 3 puts players in the gigantic 400 square mile Mediterranean island of Medici. Medici is under the tyrannous reign of dictator General Di Ravello and while it appears serene at the surface it is far from peaceful. The island provides players with an explosive playground with unlimited potential for destruction.

In an interview with the Official Xbox Magazine, Avalanche Studios' senior technical designer Anders Bodbacka explains how current-gen has given the studio the tools to create a new playground of destruction.

Just Cause 3's Main Philosophy is to "Beautify" the World Through Destruction

Anders explains the studios' goals:

We wanted destruction to be more physics-driven and more like a fun toybox that can be used as part of the gameplay. More than looking pretty and going boom, if you tether things correctly you can use them defensively or create cascading destruction – destroying an entire base just by pulling one tether. That wasn’t possible before, but improvements in technology let you do this stuff.

Just Cause 3 releases on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on December 1. We will bring you any new information on Just Cause 3 as soon as it becomes available.
