The Just Cause franchise is known for a lot of things but up until now the supernatural was not one of them. That all changes with the upcoming release of the second downloadable expansion for Just Cause 4. The Los Demonios DLC is the second installment in the ‘Dare Devils, Demons and Danger’ Expansion Pass, and by far the most out-there Just Cause experience to-date.
But how do the demons fit into Just Cause 4? Simple. Rico and Javi are exploring a temple off of the coast of Solis when some dozy archaeologist working for the Black Hand inadvertently releases the demonic spirits into the world. From here on out, demons terrorise the inhabitants of Solis, wreaking havoc all over the place while making life hard for poor Rico. He’s toppled dictators and war lords, but now he has to battle demons. All in a day’s work.
“Los Demonios is the second DLC pack in the ‘Dare Devils, Demons and Danger’ Expansion Pass, and it brings a totally new experience to JUST CAUSE 4,” said Bryan Rodriguez, Creative Producer at Avalanche Studios. “For the first time, Rico is tangling with an otherwordly threat that will push him to his limits. This is our chance to see if Rico is as good at squashing demons as he is at toppling dictators!”
Just Cause 4: Los Demonios will release on July 3rd and will cost nothing if you already bought the Expansion Pass. However, if you bought the Gold Edition of Just Cause 4, you’ll get early access to the new DLC, starting on June 26th.
Just Cause 4 didn’t go down too well here at Pure PlayStation upon release, unfortunately, and our Kyle Durant wasn’t best pleased with what was on offer. Since then, however, the game has been updated massively since release and the Spring Update has brought a slew of graphical and gameplay improvements. If you were on the fence before, maybe it’s worth taking a look now? You can pick the game up at a bargain in most retailers and online, and from what I’ve played, it’s at least as good as Just Cause 3 (I’ve not played much!)
