Just Cause sees another return of black ops agent Rico Rodriguez with Just Cause 4, as he travels Solis in an attempt to find the truth about his past.

Solid is a fictional South American country and the setting for the Just Cause games. The map for Just Cause 4 is huge, weighing in at more than 1,024 square kilometers (assuming a perfect square, that’s an area 32×32 kilometers).

The game will feature extreme weather conditions including severe thunder storms, and you can indeed be struck by lightning. There are no instant death events in Just Cause 4, encouraging players to be more creative with their gameplay, so a lightning strike will severely injure but not kill.

The original Command & Conquer released back in 1995 is one of the games that solidified the RTS genre, and spawned a plethora of sequels including classics such as Red Alert, Tiberian Sun, Generals and even an FPS called Renegade.

Since its prime in the mid to late 2000s, the RTS genre has received very little love from developers and gamers alike, but EA hopes to change that with the possibility of remastered versions of the old games.

“Ten years ago I had the pleasure of being on the production team for Command & Conquer 3 and Red Alert 3, along with being the Lead Producer on Kane’s Wrath. During those years, some of my favorite moments were interacting with our passionate community, whether at our onsite Community Summits, on the forums, or while attending various events such as Gamescom,” said Jim Vessella, a producer at Electronic Arts.

He continued with “The Command & Conquer community also wants to see the franchise return to PC. And as a fan of C&C for over 20 years, I...
