Watch The Latest Story-Focused Dev Diary for Just Cause 3

Upcoming open-world action game Just Cause 3 is shaping up to be a nice destructive romp in a sandbox of people, guns, machines, and explosions. Developer Avalanche Studios has taken plenty of steps to get more visible previews of their game in the form of videos and dev diaries.

The latest dev diary in the series focuses on the game’s story, characters, and the context of side objectives. There are some interesting things here to get excited about as while a sandbox game that encourages experimentation and player-driven mayhem is usually a positive thing, some added story and reminders that the player is in an actual living, once-breathing, place also help in cementing the experience.

See the below for the newest developer diary, focusing on story. Those interested can also see the previous dev diaries for the world, main character Rico, the destruction, the studio, and the dev team.

Just Cause 3 is due out December 1 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more on Just Cause 3, see our preview here.
