Just Cause 4 is a third-person action game from Square Enix. While Just Cause 3 was an infamous, poorly-performing console game, Just Cause 4 fixes the majority of those technical issues. The game has received a lot of content over the past few months, and that streak continues in August. The game is a getting the Danger Rising expansion which adds eight missions and much more on August 29.
The past comes back to haunt Rico in the all-new Danger Rising expansion for Just Cause 4. The pack releases on August 29 and comes with a variety of new weapons. The description says, armed with a new prototype Hoverboard, Rico vows to take down the Agency after learning of their plans to eliminate him. Tom Sheldon joins Rico on his mission and the pair begin by investigating a large submarine, which has surfaced ominously off the coast of Solis.
The Hoverboard allows you to speed across the surface of the ocean, grind along rails, and kickflip over exploding helicopters. This seems like the future of Just Cause's traversal mechanics. Hopefully, these gadgets will be available from the start in the inevitable sequel.
Just Cause 4 is currently available through Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One. The game didn't garner stellar reviews at launch, but if you're looking for a Crackdown 3-like experience where the only goal is to around and destroy everything in your path, then this title should suffice.
