Pack your machete and prepare your best Rico Suave impression, because Just Cause 2
has been officially dated.
On March 23rd, 2010 in North America and March 26th, 2010 everywhere else, super agent Rico Rodriguez and his free-wheelin' parachute return to the PS3 and Xbox 360. Square Enix (which will be releasing the game under the formerly acquired Eidos label) has revealed that the game will take place on over 400 square miles of island paradise, snowy mountains, and unforgiving desert.
“Just Cause 2 offers the freedom to explore and tackle the world in any way you choose”, said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. “The grapple and the parachute mechanic will change the way you play open-world games, allowing players to be in the air in seconds, tackling missions from above and using the aerial advantage. If you prefer to stay on solid ground, the choices offered by the grapple are limited only by your imagination.” Indeed?
