Strung up

You'll be doing the kind of things that you'd expect in Just Cause 3, as this gameplay trailer shows protagonist Rico Rodriguez engaging in a spot of explosive sky diving. According to developer Avalanche Studios, all of the footage here is taken directly from the game – it's just using cinematic camera angles. To be honest, we can believe it – but a hearty helping of scepticism is necessary in this current industry climate.

There's also word of a pre-order bonus, which includes several armoured vehicles – including a speed boat. We're all for injecting a dose of Twisted Metal into the sandbox, but it's a shame that the studio's holding these maniacal means of transport hostage. Then again, we suppose that this is the state of the industry today – and you could always purchase Mad Max if you want gun-toting cars out of the box.
