Watch out for those tornados in new Just Cause 4 footage

The Just Cause series consists of over-the-top third-person action games which revolve around destroying everything in your path. While the titles may not have the best stories, they're a lot of fun to play because the goal is to constantly blow up buildings and vehicles. Just Cause 4 continues this tradition.

At Gamescom 2018, Square Enix revealed new footage from the upcoming game and it's more bombastic than ever. If you thought the protagonist was a destructive force, the tornados and other storms that ravage the landscape are a sight to behold. You have to worry about the weather more than the enemies it seems.

Just Cause 3 launched in 2015 and suffered from numerous problems on Xbox One. The loading times were horrendous and the frame rate barely hit 30 FPS on the console. Instead of improving the game, subsequent patches made it worse. It wasn't until Microsoft released the Xbox One X that gamers were able to play the game in a stable manner. Hopefully Just Cause 4 will avoid a lot of these problems.

Just Cause 4 is expected to launch on December 4, 2018. Those who preorder the Just Cause 4: Digital Deluxe Edition (opens in new tab) or Just Cause 4: Gold Edition (opens in new tab) can play it a day early. As is the case with many "AAA" game nowadays, Just Cause 4 will be enhanced for Xbox One X.
