Just Cause 4 released last December, but Rico isn't finished felling murderous strongmen just yet. Square Enix announced a new chunk of downloadable content, titled Danger Rising, coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on August 29.
Danger Rising follows Rico as he takes on the Agency upon learning it had plans to kill him. It adds a Hoverboard to his arsenal of gadgetry, which appears to operate much like a skateboard complete with rail-grinding and kickflips. That extra mobility will come in handy against the new Agency enemies who sport stronger weaponry than in the main campaign.
The DLC will add eight new missions, new vehicles, and new weapons like the Sequoia 370 Mag-Slug, Stormalong Em Zero magnesis rifle, and remote drone Yellowstone Auto Sniper Rifle. The trailer below shows some of the story beats and Rico's new tools in action.
This is the third and final part of the Just Cause 4 "Dare Devils, Demons, and Danger" expansion pass, which is priced at $30 / £25 / AUS$45. Pricing for Danger Rising wasn't included in the announcement, but currently the first two DLC packs are priced at $8 / £6.50 / AUS$12 and $12 / £10 / AUS$18, respectively. The expansion pass also grants you a week of early access to any new DLC.
"Just Cause 4 has incredible moments where beauty and destruction cross with Rico's ability to zip around the world at a moment's notice," Michael Higham wrote in GameSpot's review. "It's gratifying and easy to grasp, especially when you're able to string a series of wingsuit fly-bys, vehicles hijackings, and fiery explosions all in the name of revolution, but those moments are either short-lived or tied to rudimentary missions. You're given an awesome toolset that paves the way for creativity in a world with too few problems to solve. At a time when open-world games sometimes overstay their welcome, Just Cause 4 is at the other end of the spectrum, where you wish there was more to experience because it has so much going for it."
