JUST CAUSE GAME
Copyright 2005 Eidos plc
[ May 17th 2005 ]
one of the world's leading publishers and developers
of entertainment software, announces first details
on Just Cause.
Developed by Avalanche Studios, Sweden, Just Cause
will be released on PlayStation 2, Xbox & PC.
Cause, you take on the role of the flamboyant
Rico Rodriguez - an undercover CIA operative specialising
in regime change - as he tries to overthrow the
corrupt government of San Esperito. This rogue
South American island is suspected of stockpiling
WMDs and it's your job to negate the threat to
world peace. It could be to your advantage that
this tropical paradise is about to implode as
various factions vie for power - it just needs
a gentle nudge in the right direction.
Cause offers the freedom to tackle your assignment
however you want: play the island's factions off
against one another; incite a rebellion among
the masses; or build alliances with rebel forces
and drug cartels. The incredibly detailed game
world consists of 1,225 sq. miles of mountains,
jungles, beaches, cities and villages which can
be explored by land, sea and air. And you will
have at your disposal one of the most varied and
exciting array of vehicles, planes and watercraft
ever seen in a video game.
Sundberg, director at Avalanche Studios says:
"Our overall vision for Just Cause is to create
a realistic game world where players can unleash
their creativity in order to bring down a regime
using any means possible. We want to provide the
player with close to endless opportunities to
play missions, explore the world and perform stunts
using land, sea and air transport."
