What would you be like if you set off a nuke … twice? Just Cause 3 has answers

The first episode of Just Cause 3's new developer diary series shows how the developers at Avalanche Studios evolved a character who tends to go nuclear — literally, get it?

Another question worth asking : Is Rico Rodriguez a good guy? It depends on where you stand in Just Cause 2's Panau or Medici, the Mediterranean island where Just Cause 3 takes place and Rico hails from. Press play above to see how Avalanche answered those questions and powered up its anti-hero for his next adventure, with influences from the modding community.

Just Cause 3 is set for a Dec. 1 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. If one video isn't enough for you, press play below to see Rico in the game's first proper trailer.
