Square Enix en Avalanche Studios hebben vandaag aangekondigd dat de nieuwste downloadbare content voor Just Cause 4 op 29 augustus zal lanceren. Het betreft hier de ‘Danger Rising’ add-on en dit is de derde en tevens laatste uitbreiding die onderdeel is van de Expansion Pass. De ‘Dare Devils, Demons and Danger’ Expansion Pass rondt hiermee het hoofdstuk van Just Cause 4 af en er is verder geen nieuwe content aangekondigd voor na dit traject.

Heb je de Gold Edition van de game gekocht? Dan heb je ook de Expansion Pass, plus zeven dagen eerder toegang tot de nieuwe content. Deze gebruikers kunnen daarom al op 22 augustus met de nieuwe Danger Rising add-on aan de slag.

Danger Rising bevat een nieuw prototype Hoverboard voor Rico die hij kan gebruiken om zich razendsnel over de map te verplaatsen. Dat is ideaal, want hij heeft er met deze uitbreiding een nieuwe missie bij, omdat een grote onderzeeër aanmeert aan de kust van Solis. Je dient deze te onderzoeken en al snel kom je er achter dat de Agency hier niet zo blij mee is.

Hieronder check je nog een korte trailer inclusief de synopsis van de uitbreiding.

Armed with a new prototype Hoverboard, Rico vows to take down the Agency after learning of their plans to eliminate him. Tom Sheldon joins Rico on his mission and the pair begin by investigating a large submarine, which has surfaced ominously off the coast of Solis. Could Rico be out of his depth against The Agency?

The odds are mounting and the hunter is about to become the hunted…

Just Cause 4 changes forever with the arrival of “Danger Rising” and the all-new Hoverboard. Speed across the surface of the ocean, grind along rails and kickflip over exploding helicopters. Discover the evolution to Just Cause 4’s already best-in-class suite of traversal options and leave awesome destruction in your wake as you take the fight to Rico’s old employers with more speed and style than ever, across new missions that that will test all of Rico’s skills and abilities.

The Agency is back, and brings the full force of their advanced tech and highly trained Agents to bear in their hunt for Rico and Sheldon. Agents grapple across the terrain, just like Rico, and attack from all angles, wielding hard-hitting weaponry unlike anything seen in JUST CAUSE 4 before.

“Danger Rising” adds eight new missions, the game-changing Hoverboard, and multiple exciting new weapons and vehicles to the crazy JUST CAUSE 4 sandbox world. Blast enemies with the ultra-powerful Sequoia 370 Mag-Slug, bend the laws of gravity with the Stormalong Em Zero magnesis rifle, or deploy your very own remote controlled drone with the Yellowstone Auto Sniper Rifle.

“Danger Rising” gives players an amazing package of awesome new tools of destruction you can employ in any mission, or in the open-world sandbox of Just Cause 4, for explosive new action packed moments of glorious mayhem.

“Danger Rising is the third DLC pack in the ‘Dare Devils, Demons and Danger’ Expansion Pass, and it brings a great new story, tough enemies that can grapple, just like Rico, and a new element that we are really excited about, the Hoverboard.” said Victoria Setian, Senior Producer at Avalanche Studios. “This is a true game changer. Just Cause 4 already had some of the best traversal mechanics around, but the Hoverboard ties everything together and gives players the smoothest, most dynamic movement system in any action game!”
