Eidos Announces JUST CAUSE 2
Rico Rodriguez returns in a thrilling fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants follow-up to the worldwide smash-hit game
Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, is pleased to confirm details of a brand new title for 2008 – JUST CAUSE 2, the sequel to the 2006 smash-hit videogame.
Developed by Avalanche Studios, JUST CAUSE 2 stars Rico Rodriquez, back to wreak havoc once again, this time with a new destination – the huge playground of the South East Asian islands of Panau, in an over-the-top Hollywood-esque blockbuster of a videogame for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, PlayStation 3 and PC.
With more stunts, vehicles and weapons than ever before and an incredible overhauled grappling hook, Rico returns to action in Panau, an incredibly detailed and vast 1000 sq km game world of different climates and ultra-realistic weather effects. Leap from your plane and skydive from 10, 000 feet down into a tropical jungle, tear across an arid desert in a dune buggy or climb your way up a snowy mountain in a 4x4. The vast open-ended, unique gameplay is back, allowing you full freedom once again to free roam and explore the massive world of Panau and tackle your assignments however you want.
With a new and improved air, land and sea stunt system featuring Rico’s notorious parachute and grappling hook, taken to incredible new extremes and a massive array of new vehicles featuring an advanced driving model, players can now pull off some of the finest action stunts ever seen in a video game in a truly massive and beautifully rendered environment.
“Remember everything you loved about Just Cause, then take it to the next level: vehicles, stunts, weapons, freedom, grappling hook, action, everything, ” said Alex Price, Brand Manager. “The game world is even more incredible in Just Cause 2 and Rico has done a bit of growing up, so expect quite a few new surprises up his sleeves.”
JUST CAUSE 2 is set for release in 2008 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
