In related news, Square Enix has today announced the Los Demonios DLC for Just Cause 4. Prepare for an all-out battle against the demonic forces from an ancient past when the DLC launches on July 3rd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
When Rico and Javi investigate a newly-discovered temple off the shore of Solis, an archaeologist working with the Black Hand unexpectedly releases an ancient demonic force from its imprisonment.
A parasitic infestation now spreads across Solis, terrorizing its inhabitants and attacking any Black Hand forces that stand in its way. Rico must tackle a horrifying new threat and seek out answers to eradicate the demon invasion from the island permanently, before it’s too late!
Discover a completely new sandbox gameplay experience with Los Demonios, as demonic hordes, pulsing tendrils and spore-filled clouds infest the towns and people of Solis in an exciting new supernatural addition to Just Cause 4. Face the demons across new missions that will require all the skills and tools at Rico’s disposal to emerge victorious. Vicious demons spit corrosive projectiles, possess soldiers, and even take over military vehicles and turn them against Rico.
Seamlessly integrating into the Just Cause 4 sandbox, the new missions enhance the crazy open world experience further and provide a return to the popular liberation gameplay of the Just Cause 3. Introducing new weapons and equipment to unlock, including the Demon Crossbow and Demon Egg Supply Drop, Los Demonios lets you take the new tools of destruction into the open-world sandbox for explosive new action packed moments of glorious mayhem.
Today, a massive spring patch for Just Cause 4 also rolled out that completely changes the world lighting, improving the way light interacts with the environment and bringing considerable visual upgrades to the game’s world. In addition to this, it also includes destructible statues and train bridges, new chaos objects to destroy in the open world, more ammo and a dialled-up ‘heat’ system that will have the Black Hand challenging Rico like never before.
