Just Cause: Mobile is a fresh spin on Square Enix and Avalanche Software’s third-person shooter series that’s blasting its way towards an iOS and Android launch in the near future. More trailer footage arrived during today’s Square Enix Presents showcase.
Its popular predecessors revelled in mayhem and apocalyptic explosions, and there’s plenty more of where that came from in this top-down spinoff. According to its official site, the game serves up a comprehensive mix of single-player and multiplayer action, with both co-op and PVP modes on offer.
The competitive multiplayer element sees 30 players going head-to-head in action-packed bouts, while the co-op portion is mission-based and built for up to four players. Then there’s the full story campaign to get stuck into, which is where long-time fans might feel most at home. That said, Just Cause players have been crying out for a proper multiplayer mode since, oh, 2010’s Just Cause 2.
Notably, Just Cause: Mobile doesn’t hail from series regular Avalanche Studios, with responsibility instead shifting to a new studio led by publisher Square Enix.
While the Just Cause: Mobile release date is still unclear, we do know that the game is free to play with in-app purchases. While you wait for the chaos to ensue, you really ought to check out this list of the best mobile multiplayer games money can, or in some cases cannot, buy.
