Square Enix has announced a March release date for Just Cause 2, in which secret agent Rico Rodriguez parachutes his way around another island while things explode.
This time around Rico hits up the South East Asian island of Panau, where his former boss Tom Sheldon has retired with a whole lot of Agency intel and cash. It's another island; another military regime; and a lot more explosions, and it's coming on March 23rf to North American Xbox 360s, PlayStation 3s and PCs, with a European release three days later on the 26th.
"Just Cause 2 offers the freedom to explore and tackle the world in any way you choose", said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. "The grapple and the parachute mechanic will change the way you play open-world games, allowing players to be in the air in seconds, tackling missions from above and using the aerial advantage. If you prefer to stay on solid ground, the choices offered by the grapple are limited only by your imagination."
I may come off snarky, but I'm actually looking forward to another round of Just Cause, if only to see if they fixed the things I disliked about there first one. Hey, it happened with Assassin's Creed II, why not Just Cause 2?
