Square Enix London Studios in partnership with NAMCO BANDAI Partners Australia & New Zealand today announced an action-packed demo for the highly anticipated Just Cause 2.
Available to download from PlayStation®Store on the evening of 4th March 2010, the demo will feature a massive 35 square miles of the Lautan Lama Desert, a vast expanse of stunning, sun-scorched scenery taking up just one of the many islands in the 400 square miles of the Panau archipelago. Packed with towns, villages, military installations, mountain ranges, missions and more, the demo will feature an astonishing amount of activities for the player, and opportunities for adrenaline-fuelled chaos are limitless.
Hunt down and assassinate one of the game's 50 military colonels; devastate military bases, bio fuel chambers, government infrastructure and more; hijack tuk tuks, military 4x4s, armoured vehicles, mopeds, helicopter gunships, light aircraft, mini vans and numerous other military and civilian vehicles; freefall from desert outcrops or from burning planes at 20,000 feet; and unlock one full, multi-stage mission, traversing the mountains to a heavily fortified government radar station and ending in an unforgettable desert car chase.
"The Just Cause 2 demo is simply massive and with so much to do, the replay value is enormous," said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. "It's easily one of the biggest freeroaming demos of all time and for fans of openworld games, it's unmissable."
As Rico Rodriguez, the Agency's most powerful weapon, players must take on the island of Panau and its military regime in order to track down Rico's former boss and mentor, Tom Sheldon, who has gone rogue with millions in Agency cash and intel. Using a unique grapple and parachute combination, there is no vertical limit as the air becomes your playground: grapple a passing plane in flight, hijack helicopters, BASE jump from the tallest buildings or mountains and leave a trail of chaos and destruction in your wake.
Just Cause 2 offers players the freedom to tackle missions any way they choose, and, with over 100 vehicles and countless upgrades and collectibles, the choices for relentless adrenaline-fuelled action are limitless.
Just Cause 2 will be available for PlayStation®3 on 1st April 2010. The game is classified MA15+ (strong violence) in Australia and R18 (contains violence) in New Zealand.
