Play the Original Just Cause vis Backward Compatibility
The 2006 classic is back! Starting today, Just Cause now supports Backward Compatibility. Now you can play the entire Just Cause series from JC1 to JC4 on Xbox One!
In Just Cause, Rico is a field operative and specialist in regime change backed by a top-secret US government agency who will overthrow the corrupt government of San Esperito. Just Cause offers the freedom to tackle your assignments however you want: playing the island’s factions against one another, inciting a rebellion among the masses and building alliances with rebel forces and drug cartels. The action takes place over 250,000 acres of mountains, jungles, beaches, cities and villages. The island can be explored by land, sea and air, as you will have an exciting array of vehicles at your disposal.
Just Cause 4 Available December 4 on Xbox One
Have you watched the latest Just Cause 4 trailer yet? In JC4, Rico Rodriguez (now rogue from the Agency) visits Solís in South America hell bent on uncovering the truth behind his father’s death. Check out the Just Cause 4 story trailer below:
It’s time to bring the thunder! In Just Cause 4, Rico Rodriguez returns with his biggest challenge yet. Everything you loved about Just Cause returns alongside new ground-breaking features and a wide variety of tools. Just Cause 4 is quite possibly the most ambitious game we’ve ever made.
We’ve upgraded Rico’s arsenal, we have a brand-new Apex game engine, and The Black Hand are by far Rico’s most formidable opponent to-date. In this huge, beautiful South American island, its locals are kept under control by the ruthless Black Hand militia, led by the dangerous Gabriela Morales.
Although this is Rico’s biggest challenge ever, players will have complete freedom to approach each situation from any angle, in any order, and in any way they choose.
Oh, and did we mention we have tornados? Extreme weather is a complete game changer, — you’ve never seen anything like this in a video game. Our new engine has been pushed to the max by introducing real physics simulations that completely alter gameplay, allowing for better-than-ever destruction.
More information on Just Cause 4 can be found in the announcement blog post we wrote earlier this year. Just Cause 4 is available December 4 on Xbox One.
