Prepare for explosions.
By Brian AlbertJust Cause 3, the third game in Avalanche Studios' open-world action series, is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One next year.
Game Informer revealed the game as part of its December cover story, which places the game in the Mediterranean. It will feature "vastly improved parachute and grapple mechanics," as well as the same strong focus on crazy physics and mayhem.
In April of this year, a LinkedIn profile for an Avalanche Studios developer tipped off a "new installment in a very well-known game series." Avalanche also teased the game on Twitter as early as last year.

Spoiler for a spoiler:
Just Cause 3 is set in the Mediterranean, but its locale is just one deviation from its numbered predecessor. Although the new map is about the same size as Just Cause 2's in terms of area, Avalanche's "volumetric terrain" adds more verticality to the new world –– players can not only descend into subterranean caverns, but climb towering structures that change up the relatively flat experience of Just Cause 2, according to the most recent issue of Game Informer Magazine.
"Just Cause shines when you get the player to be comfortable being in the air," director Roland Lesterlin told Game Informer. "We spent a lot of time talking about what it is that encourages a player to be vertical, to be creative."
Despite a Just Cause 2 mod that added multiplayer to the entry, Avalanche is opting for another single-player only experience with the new installment. The developer didn't rule out a multiplayer mode completely, but said its focus is in the single-player sandbox right now.
